I will keep this brief, but I did want to wish Mr. Donnie Wahlberg a very happy birthday today. He turns 44 and all I can say is that he will hands down always be my favorite New Kid on the Block. I can only be grateful for the hours of entertainment that he’s given me and so many other fans because of his live performances, albums, shows, and movies. I’ve never met Donnie (I’ve gotten very close and we did have a moment on Twitter), but, given what I’ve seen of him, it seems safe to say that he is genuinely a great guy. He shows so much love to his fans, he puts everything he has into his work, and he knows how to appreciate life. When you’ve reached a point that you can find the beauty in every day and every experience, then I can’t help but admire the positive vibes you spread to the world. In short, Happy Birthday Donnie!
