Saturday night, my amazing wife threw me the most incredible 40th birthday party I could imagine! So good to be surrounded by family and loved ones. I had the time of my life. I'm so grateful. And the photo booth? The greatest of all time (in the Instagram era, that's like 90% of party planning, right?)
Thank you all for the birthday wishes today. It's been a wonderful year, and I feel so grateful for all 40 years of my life. This year has been especially awesome. I love my growing family. Luna is so special and I love being her father and watching her personality blossom. We welcomed Miles to this world and I see so much of myself in him and can't wait to see who he becomes. Chrissy is the superstar I always knew her to be. I'm happy that more and more people around the world are realizing this too. Professionally, this year's biggest highlight was the EGOT, of course. That was amazing and wouldn't have happened without the absolutely amazing experience of working on Jesus Christ Superstar. It was so beautiful to work on such a powerful production with such a diverse, talented team. We all devoted so much energy and time to make the show work and it succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. I began the year playing Jesus and ended the year playing Santa. I know I probably wore y'all out promoting the Christmas album since October, but I truly enjoyed the entire experience. From working with @raphael_saadiq and all the musicians to working with my team at @friendsatwork to create such a fun, creative campaign, to working with Chrissy and the team to make the tv special, to working with the band and production team to put on a magical tour, wow, it was such a joy. Thank you to all my collaborators, friends, fans and family who made my 40th year so memorable. I love you all. Have a wonderful 2019.
