Acoustic Night!

This past Saturday I was invited by my friend, Bryce, to sing with him for their monthly Acoustic Night down at Condo Row in Provo. It's amazing to me that they get so many people out to a non-sponsored event, just held in someone's apartment. It's even more amazing to me that they have continued to hold Acoustic Night in the same apartment after the original creators moved out. Haha! It's fantastic and allows so many people to share their talents, passion, and overcome in a crowd that is loving and supportive. It was a lot of fun!

 I hope you'll take three and half minutes of your life and watch/listen to our video on YouTube - directly embedded right below you... How convenient! Haha - Here's Bryce and me singing I Love You Anyway by Jarrett Burns (a local artist):

I hope to have to opportunity to participate again... It seriously was a lot of fun watching everyone (my "cousin" Taylor performed too and was SO great!), jamming out, and performing - I always love performing! With that, I just want to add that next week I will be posting a video on YouTube that is an audition piece for Stadium of Fire... I know it's a long-shot in many ways, but I'm hoping I can could on all my avid readers (the few I have) to watch it, like it, and spread it. I'll give you more on that as the time grows closer.

P.S. I'm SO sad that Davies is off the BYU team for the rest of the season... I'm heartbroken for him and for the team - AND, for the fans. I really do feel for him though - having to deal with this in such a public setting. I KNOW he made the choice he made (whatever it was), and I'm mad about the situation too. However, it would be tough for him... and I'm sure he's not feeling good about the situation or his choice either. I hope that BYU Basketball continues to perform and conquer! I am hoping that this won't greatly effect the tournament and the opporutnity we have to really show other conferences and the NCAA what we can do - We're #3 right now!  I'm practical, but also faithful... I also hope that he can get past whatever the issue may be and continue on successfully as an individual, and hopefully next season with Basketball again. 

Song of the Day: It should be obvious... I Love You Anyway (Jarrett Burns cover), by Linze Struiksma and Bryce Mosely  - Please watch above - ENJOY!

As I'm sure you know, I'm not really a BYU fan, but I have to say that I really like the approach you're taking with Davies' situation. I've seen a lot of fans who have expressed A LOT of anger at him. Sure, it's upsetting, and he messed up, but I think people forget that he is a person, and while he let the team and the fans down, this is definitely tough for him to. I don't think they would want thousands of people judging and criticizing their choices.
And you're right, it has been a while since I've seen you. I'm working two jobs in Park City right now, but I do manage to squeeze in fun time. We'll have to figure something out.
