It was performance time!! Today was a blast! The keynote speaker was informative and very insightful. I had some laughs and some awe moments. When it was time to perform I was supercharged because I felt welcomed by the audience. I thought everyone brought there 'A' game today. We were on fire :). I could see the many teary and serious faces on the audience unlike any other I had seen. We really hit home today. After this experience, my whole view on life and my music outside of EG changed. I am an educator, whether i want to or not. I don't want to mislead and mis-educate my listeners. I will not fall prey to this industry poisoned image of what an artist should be. I will control what it is i feed to this generation.
