Hope you guys are excited about my news! Everything happens for a reason! Since October 29th I’ve been shooting a movie as a Co-Star Lead and it’ll be a few more weeks before we wrap! This has been a dream come true! I’ve been acting and singing since I was a kid including Broadway and TV but this is my first feature film! Thanks for going on this journey with me! And more music to come! #Dreams #Selfies #Acting #Hashtagging #TheyChoppedMyHair #alcalderon

Yep, I’m very proud of Al. He has been plugging away for years and he really does work as a host in a restaurant. He never gave up! Actually…he started working harder as the road got tougher! I watched this happen. Music, Acting and being true to his craft - it takes all heart from him. If you saw him on The X Factor - you have seen how much he wants this. This is the beginning. This is the HUGE step in the direction he wants to go with his life. Truth is…you never know what can happen with a film or any project you are attached to. It can be huge or not. He can only do his best at the role (dig deep & focus) and he is a VERY talented actor. Al can bring emotional range to his roles in a way that I have not seen from many actors his age. So I am 100% sure that all will be blown away but what he brings to the picture. Congrats!!! And to those who support him - congrats to you too! It feels good when you believe in someone and watch them rebound or excel - their successful moments become yours as well. No one can do it alone! Take inspiration from that. Be proud. 
Note: Al starting filming on the same date as the LIVE SHOWS for the X Factor! Irony.

Randomly bought these super cozy slipper/socks at CVS! Haha. They are downright yummy. It’s cold in NYC! Perfect for my lazy day. What are you guys doing today?? #LazyDay #NYC #SofaAllDay 

Now, watching Pretty Woman “Big mistake, big. Huge.” - Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman). 

Ever feel like someone didn’t give you a chance to see your full potential? Nice when you have the proper support & guidance to stick it to those suckers later and say it. I saw potential in these sock…even if they were at CVS. Haha. I like to see potential in most things and see how I can show them love.

When Al Calderon hits 12k Subscribers on his Youtube Channel he will early release the AUDIO from his next Cover Video. This photo of @alcalderon is from the studio 2 weeks ago. He is very focused and discussing the song with the Producer. This is a STUNNING vocal! Can’t wait for the world to hear it. Any guesses on what song he covered to perfection?? Spread the word! Reposts welcome. XO! #AlCalYoutube12K #AlCalderon #AlCalSings #Smile #Brooklyn

One of the sweetest Artists/Talent I have worked with in my 18 years in this often evil business, took a beat while we were walking with friends and the crew the other day to slip over to a flower stand at the farmer’s market to surprise me with this simple and happy sunflower. A giant THANK YOU and HUG followed. This person has become one of my closest friends this year (for real) which was following the darkest 2 years of my life. 

I do what I do because I love it. I struggle at times, as we all do. I am not rich (far from it). It is not glamorous (far from it). It may seem otherwise to the outside world. I don’t do this to be around fame.  I do this to be around dreams realized and awesome, creative, funny, sensitive, hardworking, grateful people who inspire me and I inspire them. It’s an awesome circle of creativity. It’s emotional. It’s rewarding with the right humans. I choose the people I work with carefully - no toxic energy allowed. We laugh A LOT!

I am currently listening to Whitney Houston’s “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” as I prep my week and reboot. Thank you for this Happy Flower. #IveGotYou #Friends #NYC #DreamTeam #ThankYou

Please love yourself!!

I quietly observed and met some beautiful young ladies yesterday that don’t see themselves as beautiful. I have lost 140 pounds and wish I didn’t hide from photos or special moments even when I didn’t like myself (which was for MOST of my life!). I mattered to the people who TRULY loved me inside and out. The people that loved me then and are still with me now always saw the real me! Whatever I can do to help and love you and HELP YOU TO LOVE YOU, I will. Girl Power! I only hang with people who don’t judge. YOU ARE SPECIAL. YOU MATTER! Please step forward and live your life.

Much Love,

Leslie
