    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

Wilson achieved her dream with the 2012 Decca Records release of her debut album, AM/FM, an intimate, elegant and beautifully sung collection of classics from the '60s and '70s that taken together make up the soundtrack of her youth. Since the release of AM/FM, Wilson has focused on a new component of her music as a songwriter. During the past two years, she has collaborated with a number of extraordinarily talented and successful songwriters composing original material for her second album scheduled for a March 2016 release.

    From The Wings: The Live Art Story Erin Thomas Foley woke up from a dream she had one night with a vision that, while seemingly impossible, planted the seed that turned into an innovative idea which would inspire those around her. In the dream, kids with special needs were performing alongside typically developed kids on a large stage for a big audience. Over the years that followed, Erin and those around her would turn that dream into a reality with the creation of live art.
    This documentary is about a group of children with varying abilities that came come together to create an unprecedented performance and change their community forever. It follows six students from the School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community (SPARC) in Virginia, their families and several staff members, and chronicles how the children and adults face their own fears, learn what empathy really means, and discover countless things they didn't know about themselves and the world around them. The experience culminates in an inspirational night of music, dance and visual art-including a performance by recording artist Jason Mraz-that unifies students with and without disabilities before a sold-out audience at the majestic Carpenter Theatre.
