What a wild weekend at Celebrate Virginia Live. I love the start of concert season. It is hard to believe how much goes into preparing the venue. I still get chills when I leave the site and all we have is a piece of land and then mom turns the corner the next day and the stage is up.
I hope everyone enjoyed the Jamey Johnson show. It was fun to open the show with my new friend Christal Blue from Thunder 104.5 and Mark Clifford. This year I will be also sharing the stage with Jessica and Steve from 93.3 WFLS.
I love talking about Project 324. Our mission is to help the ARTS flourish. We opened the show with Emma Zinck and the Quantico Young Marines. Emma is the reigning WFLS 2014 Country Idol. She is a rising star. She is also a Celebrate Virginia Live Intern. Emma is a senior at Mountainview High school in Stafford. She is incredible and you will be seeing more of Emma this season.
Montgomery Gentry will be here in the ‘Burg in less than 24 hours. Tomorrow is Military Appreciation and First Responder Day. If you purchase one general admission ticket you will get one free.
I started something new this year called…”Make Someone’s Summer” sponsored by Project 324. After the National Anthem and before the opening act I will be walking around looking for two lucky people to be upgraded. It could be you 🙂
The film “Live Art” is very special and deserves for everyone to watch and VOTE. As a spokesperson for the Celebrate Virginia Live Project 324, this is an initiative we are supporting. Performing Arts have helped me. After my stroke, I took dance lessons to work on my balance and coordination. This grew into me learning how to act and model. It helped my confidence soar. Take a moment and just watch. Help spread the word on twitter, Facebook, or email.
