Street Festival Today!

Today, I am doing a thing that is going to be very bittersweet.

I played at Mayfest for the first time on Mother’s Day of 2009.  I remember because I had the sweet ladies of my freshman dorm floor tell me about their moms and wrote a Mother’s Day song based on what they had to say.

Since 2009, I have missed two years.  The last two years.  I missed 2016 because I was working and I missed 2017…not sure why but did.  This year though…I’M BACK!!!

Today at 1:00 I take the stage to perform an hour of some of my favorite songs, including the time tested Mother’s Day song I wrote back in 2009.

But today marks another event.  An event I am not happy about.

Today is the first time I will perform at Mayfest without the musical accompaniment of my father.  I will be playing his guitar.  I will be singing through the microphone he bought me for my birthday a few years ago.  I will be singing some songs he approved of and some he never got a chance to hear.  I will be making music because he raised me to love music.  It will be hard.  But it will be wonderful.

I hope you can come out and join us.  It’s gonna be hot y’all.  But we are going to worship God and have a wonderful time and even praise our mothers a little bit!  They deserve it after all.  And after all of the focus I have placed on the fact that my dad won’t be there for the first time in seven years…he will be.

He will be backing me up on a heavenly guitar.  And Gods gonna be dancing.  And they’re both going to be shouting with smiles on their faces:

“That’s my girl!”

Be His.
