Later today (3:45pm ET) I’ll deliver my annual State of the Word speech, which I’m very excited about. If you’d like to watch remotely, this year live stream tickets are free and you can tune in here.

Music videos are themselves an art form, and it’s always interesting to me how an artist chooses to transform the interpretation of their song with the video.
