way to push through this time of social distancing than with great music, and our next guest is coming at us from all angles, he just wrapped up a live virtual concert event. He's launched an Instagram performance show. He's released a new album and he was one of my favorites always. Joining me now, grammy award winner Richard Marx. Richard, thank you so much for being with us. And I know we've just mentioned you've had quite the busy lockdown schedule. You've been hosting a podcast with your wife, Daisy Fuentes. How did that all come about? Well, first of all, you flatter me, Amy, that's very sweet. But I think like any other touring musician, so that seems go, go, show next town, all year. My wife and I went into lockdown in March. I was supposed to fly to Europe and do 22 shows in Europe, and so I was faced with this abrupt halt like everybody else. But for someone like me it was the first time I think I've ever been made to be still, you know, so within a week or so I was like, I got to do something. So, little by little, my interview show, social distancing started with me zooming different friends of mine who happened to be celebrities, or in the entertainment business or whatever, just to see how they were faring through all of this. Little by little it grew. Publicities were calling, all of a sudden I became merv griffin overnight. You're a podcaster, also you've been doing those concerts on Instagram.

We're excited, we have a special treat, a performance you prepared for our viewers. Let's get right to it. Ladies and gentlemen, performing the title track to his new album, here's Richard Marx with "Limitless." the world is ours, whatever we want it to be pour it down all over me I'm lost, I'm found, I hold you like a mystery I'll meet you where no one else can see it's like my heartbeat's pounding right out of my chest out of breath this right here is about as good as it gets and this love and this love is and this love is limitless you let go when I was holding on too tight you put the colorin' to black and white it's like my heartbeat's poundin' right out of my chest, yeah, like my heartbeat's got me all out of breath and baby, this right here is about as good as it gets and this love and this love is and this love is limitless limitless The new album, again if you didn't hear it there, limitless, Richard Marx, it was so wonderful having you with us.
