August 20, 2011.
How beautiful a day was it when I would finally be in the same vicinity of JOSH GROBAN! In my retro green dress, hair up, hobbling on my crutches, I arrived at the MGM with my beautiful family. I felt so excited and insanely stoked that I was flying! Josh's face was being advertised everywhere and I felt as if I would faint. It was the day that I had been waiting for since the moment I had first become a Grobanite.
I may sound as if I am over-exaggerating what I felt, but I most definitely am not. Josh has been my musical inspiration and love since the beginning of my music days. It is people like him that have shown me that classical music kicks butt and that you have to find what music suits you not what music suits everyone else. That realization is wonderful, and I am so thankful to him for showing me that I can be myself even when it comes to music.
When Josh came impromptu onto the center stage, it seemed as if the world had gone into slow motion. I was stunned absolutely and screaming at the top of my lungs, trying to drown out the screams everyone around me! He started to play his piano and instantly, goosebumps and tears. I looked to my sisters, mom, grandma, dad and back at him. "Am I really here?" I was sitting at the edge of my seat.
The entire concert was perfect, not a single note sung out of place. At one point, I was literally ten feet away from him. I thought about hobbling over with my one working leg at the time just to tell him how much I'm inspired by him... but then again that might have been interrupted by the extremely tough looking bodyguard standing behind him.
The musical compositions were masterpieces, the stage was a world of it's own. He sang my favorite songs, songs from older albums and songs from Illuminations. Every one of them magnificent. Josh Groban took us to another world with his talent that he bestows upon us.
