I went to see Joss Stone live in concert tonight. I was in tears watching her on stage. Watching her sing so effortlessly on stage, the big production, the connection to the audience, it all just made me think how happy I would be to do that EVERY DAY. I couldn’t hold back the joy that flowed through my body like a gust of wind taking me away.
After the concert, my roommate Julia and I waited outside the door for an hour hoping to meet Joss. She ended up coming out because Julia made friends with her friend (ha), and voila! There is Joss Stone! And I hand her my demo and tell her that she is the reason I’ve become the artist I am today. She was so kind and actually took the time to listen to me talk to her Magical. A look into what a successful career in the music industry is like… Her advice for me, “Just don’t sign to a record label and you’ll be fine.” ha.
Its times like these that make me know I’m walking the right path. Follow your heart and good things will come Here’s a video I made the other day, enjoy!
