Hey guys! This past week was quite a whirlwind... lots of fun and interesting possibilities for this summer... and the road, but can't make any official announcements yet, sooooorrryy! So I can tell you that yes, Idol was a lot of fun, but what was more fun was the rest of the week.
The day after the taping, I was called to meet with some people at a studio out in North Hollywood so I trustingly typed the address into my GPS (Anne Margaret, for short) and follow her British accent to a strange and unpretentious part of town. I pull up to this small studio and as I am walking in the door, I am greeted by 3 friendly brunette lads (as Anne Margaret would say). It took a couple seconds to put the pieces together, but sure enough, they were the Jonas Brothers. I got a kick out of how sweet and gracious they were as they were offering us coffee and a place to sit. I am not crazy familiar with their music, but all this was to say that I was pleasantly surprised at the humility that still exists in this business =).
Immediately following the meeting, I jetted to the Dreamcenter where I was to be singing that night. *Sidenote: the Dreamcenter is a wonderful church that gets out into the neighborhoods and does what Jesus asks us to do, take care of each other, LOVE these people! www.dreamcenter.org* Anyhoozer, so I get a call that a fan of mine wants to meet me and would love to spend some time together... later in the call I find out that its my fav American Idol contestant, Danny Gokey! I am an unashamed Idol watcher so it was cool to spend some time with him. He is a stand up guy, loves God, has a genuine heart, and has a freaking crazy voice! (That's my way of saying he can SANG). SO, if you find yourself just aching to vote for something on a Tuesday night, let it be Danny Gokey on AI, k?! K. More to come!
