I don’t think this feeling will ever go away. It’s another wrap of another incredible ISA concert, and the emotions of joy, pride, and inspiration are more strong than ever. Over 2500 people in the San Jose Civic Auditorium, screaming their lungs out, dancing, smiling, laughing. It’s truly a sight to see.
While FM was giving their performance, I was on the side of the stage looking out at the crowd pressed against the front of the stage. I specifically looked at the faces of all the fans, trying to put myself in their shoes and guess what they were thinking based on their faces. Wide eyes, huge smiles, cameras up, hands reaching out. They’d snap a pic, show their friends, they’d say some words with smiles and laughter. I felt like we were really creating some strong and wonderful memories for these young people, and that makes me the most happy. Not the “fame” or popularity, not that we get to meet other “famous” people, none of that. It’s the fact that we are affecting lives in a positive way, even just for a night, one memory for them to look back on and say, wow…I remember that night with my friends at ISA in 2011, that was one of the best, most memorable nights of my life.
Thank you fans and supporters in San Jose and the entire Bay Area for coming out with incredible love and energy. We had a great time and you can be sure that we’ll be back again! Photos and more updates to trickle in… but for now… let’s flyyyyyYYYyyy! Up up here we go!!
