I Love My Job!


Let's just call this one of the "perks" of my new career. Last Friday night, I got to go hang out with my favorite singer/songwriter, Jonatha Brooke! We were at the Aladdin Theater to shoot a segment at her concert! Now, a little history: Jonatha Brooke has been in my CD player for over 11 years. When my husband and I courted.. it was to The Story's "The Angel In The House." Fast forward to last Friday night, and I was actually back stage with her and the band. Not possible. Somebody pinch me!

Marni and I wanted to do an "It" Mom segment that encourages moms to seek out and pursue music that inspires them. For some reason when our kids get old enough to enjoy music, we stop buying it for ourselves. Example: The last two CD's I've purchased were, Hannah Montana and Hillary Duff. Nothing against these teenagers, but they don't really do "it" for me.

The show was amazing, of course, the band rocked, Jonatha was...well, Jonatha, for heaven's sake!.... but the best part was just getting to hang out with her. We did a quick interview with her about how she writes, where she gets her inspiration, and what she loves about performing live that was incredible! Marni was in tears when she played us a little of the song, "So Much Mine." I was mush. Totally in awe of this talented person that I now call my BFF. People kept asking if we were sisters, and I was suddenly 13 and giddy. I might have geeked out just a little.....

So... the segment will air locally soon, but it will also be on the better.tv website if you want to check it out in about 2 weeks. We got some great video of the conert as well as the interview I told you about.

Jonatha's newest CD, "Careful What You Wish For" is amazing. Get it. You heard me... I said get it! I'm not gonna be nice about it.

Dreams really do come true... Seriously, I told you I geeked out....

Rock on....
