The evening began with a VIP reception where guests were able to meet and greet with Cavalli. The party started off with a reading from 24 & Divorced read by Maylia McNaughton. Cavalli played a snippet from a number of his songs off of his 24 song album accompanied with the beautiful violinist Allyson Clare. Cavalli gave a brief description of what each song meant giving listeners even more depth of the songs and how it tied into his book.
The book 24 & Divorced is a true story of rocket success, rockbottom failure and a blindsided betrayal that ruined Leonardo Cavalli’s marriage, leaving him devastated for years to come. This story begins with Cavalli in a medical research facility, taking experimental test drugs to earn enough money to get his car, home and life back on track. As the first needle is injected in Cavalli’s arm he fights back tears as he internally evaluates how his once, amazingly ordered life got to that pitiful point. Throughout this book Cavalli speaks on red flags he should have avoided, and lessons that he learned that he uses to counsel courting and married couples. Cavalli writes with the intention of helping people who are in love stay in love, and helping people that have been hurt gain the courage need to fall in love again.
Wounded is an album that covers topics of falling in and out of love. Cavalli touches on how he momentarily lost faith in humanity as well as the creator of them. He also speaks on how he lost it all, and then found himself after years of soul searching. The genres on this album include R&B, Hip-Hop, Cross-Over Pop and Reggae. He created this album to pair with 24 & Divorced.
