After 8 months in quarantine, it was really satisfying to be back in a studio (with full social distance, mask, & COVID safety protocols, of course) to direct this musical performance with Jon Batiste for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
I can’t tell you how nice it was to just create something beautiful, that’s also a nice message about coming together again in the future. Jon’s a real gem to work with and a fantastic performer, plus I relish any chance to play around with Christmas decorations on camera. It’s a thrill every. time. And, there’s some bonus holiday magic near the end of the song that we got to do for real, right in the room. All in all, a really fun morning.
Thanks y’all for watching and here’s wishing a very Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season to you and yours. See you in 2021 (god, I hope)!
