“I’ve always had a lifelong thirst for knowledge,” Union continued. “Connecting with the birthplace of civilization and my own ancestry helped me inch closer to my true self. There was no other place I wanted to spend my 50th birthday. It was an experience I’ll never forget and I’m excited for audiences to join me on the journey.”
