RIP Gene Wilder aka Willy Wonka!

This guy was my absolute favorite as a kid growing up and I know all of the songs from the original Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory movie (sorry kids the new Willy Wonka with Johnny Depp does not count! LOL).  When I heard of his passing back on August 29th, I posted to social media a version of the song “Pure Imagination” that I recorded back in July and completely forgot to post it here!  I was up late working in the studio and that song popped in my head as I had been working on it a student.  As I started to play it, I couldn’t help but think of my children and how I hope that their imaginations remain pure so that they can feel free to create anything that they desire.  I hope you enjoy my rendition of the song and always remember that you can do anything you put your mind to!
