Black Tie

Can you feel it, that Spring is in the air?

Birds are singing, the music of rain showers fills our ears, heralding the renewal of life. Even the flowers are singing to us that Spring is here.

Echoing the myriad songs surrounding us this season, Ultimate Ice Cream celebrates the awakening, and soothing, of the human soul through the gift of song, specifically the singers of the song.
