"I have been in NYC and am just now getting a chance to listen to my music for Miss America. It sounds great and I am very pleased. Certainly appreciate all of your hard work on this, especially in a year when the rules concerning what music would be permitted for use came to us at such a late date. Please tell Milton and the female singer he used on the project everything was spot on! THANK YOU!"
