The Domino Effect

If you had asked me three years ago if I believed I would be singing anthems for 20,000 people on a regular basis, my answer would range from, "are you crazy?" to "yeah right, why would you joke around like that?". Then this happened:

Then the "Domino Effect" comes into play. With some social media magic and natural relationship building with everyone I meet, whether in person or online, I've been so lucky to encounter more than just anthem singing for the Whitecaps.

Last month, I had the unbelievable privilege to sing the anthem for thousands upon thousands of runners at the BMO Vancouver Marathon. The organizers put me up on a scissor lift and lifted me a few meters from the ground. My view of the unending sea of runners was indescribable. I felt like I was on top of the world!

More recently, I was approached by a planner for the annual Vancouver event, The Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix. They had seen and heard me sing for the Whitecaps and the BMO Marathon and asked if I wanted to take part in this year's Grand Prix. A second didn't go by before I said YES! I'm so damn excited to be a part of this exciting local event. Gastown is one of my very favorite neighborhoods in Vancouver and it will be exhilarating to see it transformed for the Grand Prix.

Singing the anthems might be a small part of the pie to some, but for me, the opportunities that rose and continue to rise from one simple audition means the world.
