Its Off To San Diego..... Were Rolling!
We are on the bus headed to San Diego. The last two shows were AMAZING!! West coast love is seriously somethin' when you can get it.
Anaheim was 1st. The crowd was so dope. We found out thru trial and error, that Alicia Key's crowd, for the most part, is a lil' more reserved. They ain't really gonna stand up n' act a fool like that. They're gracious, but calm with it. So we're getting use to that as we go......then Anaheim throws that whole thought outta wack!!! They were on their feet, singing along, WILDIN' OUT!!! And it felt incredible.
Then came the LA show. Very important show. A lot of very important people at this show, like friends n' family of the band and dancers, not to mention the hollywood crowd. Lots of celebrities and press people that can and will be VERY nasty with those reviews. So needless to say, we were a lil' on edge.
My personal assistant, and official holder of my brain, told me of a pastor that she knew here, and suggested that we get him to come and say a prayer over our whole team. I was a lil' worried at 1st, just because I don't know everybody's views on religion, and didn't wanna force anyone to do anything they weren't comfortable with.
I asked everyone into the room and told them what I wanted to do, letting them know that if they weren't with it, it was ok to leave the room. Everybody just looked around at each other, then just grabbed hands. The pastor prayed something so powerful, that after he was done, everybody just grabbed the person next to them and gave em' a hug. It felt great.
We got out on that stage with a power on us that we hadn't felt before. The show was CRAZY!!! And the crowd definitely let us know they appreciated it.
So now it's off to Diego. I'll let you know how it goes............see you on the road.
