QUOTE OF THE DAY

Happy birthday to Pharrell Williams, singer, rapper, and producer, who turns 42 today. Williams has won a total of ten Grammy awards so far, both as a solo artist and as part of the record production duo called the Neptunes. We’re sure you know the ear worm “Happy” from Despicable Me 2 – if not, it made the latest K+M playlist! Check that out here.
