Hi, my name is Leaveil Degree and I'm a member of the group called The Whispers. And as I was sitting here thinking about a song that we did several years ago called "Just Gets Better With Time." And that kind of has a two-fold meaning, one, if you're in relationships, of course, you hope that relationship over a period of time actually gets better and gets stronger and that you love that person even more than you did in the beginning and that shows the foundation of a wonderful relationship, whether it's boyfriend, girlfriend, fiance, or whatever, or even marriage, you want that relationship to be stronger in time. And when I look at it, twofold meaning, even with The Whispers in their performances and things like that, we try to get stronger in time. We try to do things that keep us relevant and that it would just get better in time. You know, we've been doing it now for 50-plus years and we hope that our audience still feels the same way about us as we feel about them, we love 'em.
