On October 25th, I got the opportunity to be apart of a project that turned out to be way bigger, on a variety of scales, than I could have imagined. When I got a call from Sarah Beth, WTB’s leading lady, to be apart of this special project, I was incredibly excited, but I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I knew it would be hard work, but work well done.
After hours of putting thousands of small colorful flyers into what seemed like at least a million cup holders, Bridgestone Arena was set to be a beautiful display of color. When the show began, the crowd erupted with excitement. Although my joy was just as equal, there was also a sense of anxiousness, a hope that the project would be successful, noticed, appreciated, you name it. I was sweaty and tired, but anxiously excited to see what would happen next.
Then came the cue for the signs to reveal their glory. The slow piano of “Rainbow” filled the arena, and with it what seemed like a million colorful lights. Kacey seemed to notice, and commended the crowd with a “Wow”. I immediately felt relieved, and hopeful that this would leave a lasting impression on her, the crowd, and anyone involved. When she ended the song, you could see she was emotional, and I knew that this event would definitely be remembered.
When the show was over, my entire social media timeline was filled with snapshots of the show, complete with the rainbow-filled arena. This project was SUCH a joy to be apart of, and I’m super grateful I was asked to participate. Can’t wait to see what With The Band does next, and hopefully they can continue to have the same effect on other artists as they have with Kacey, the Jonas Brothers, and more. #WTBMakesArtistsCryInACoolWay
