Hometown Boy makes Good
This is an off-topic post, for those who worry about such things. It's also very brief because we got in late and are leaving for the day very shortly.
We went to Blue Springs to see the mural that the high school kids from Blue Springs South created to honour their hometown hero, David Cook. He was there with his mamma, his brother, and assorted other family members. It was way, way cool to stand at the fringe of the crowd and experience his joy. (and tears.)
Honestly. It was just one of the nicest events I've ever experienced. Til last night when we went to the first concert of the American Idols Live! tour 08.
We had really, really good seats. I mean, REALLY. And the place was packed, and the crowd showed a whole lotta love to all the singers, most of whom were awesome. (I have pics of most and will eventually do a recap sort of post after I sleep and digest the experience a little better.)
This is for Kylee. David Archuleta was simply, utterly amazing. And he's sick, but he just brought the crowd to incredible volumes.
But this guy? I'm sure you could hear the noise in the Sprint Centre a long way away. Probably in Ohio. And he got soggy again. How could you not, with, oh, I dunno, 18,000 or so of your fans singing 'Time of my Life' back to you? He sure IS having the time of his life. Well deserved.
I love good news stories, can you tell?
