My Show at Tuvalu

Saturday night was such an EXCITING milestone for me!! I had my first 2-HOUR show! 🙂

My show was at the super cute Tuvalu Coffeehouse in Verona, Wisconsin 🙂

I started my show with ten songs.

I took a 15 minute break and played 11 more songs.

I took a ten minute break after that and played the last ten songs of my set. That makes a 31 song show! 🙂

I played all the songs from my album, TEMPTATION and 20 covers. Since my show was in December, I had to include some Christmas songs 😉 2 of the 20 covers were the “Coventry Carol” and “Silent Night”, which I recorded and posted earlier this month as part of my “December Challenge.” 🙂

It was very foggy on Saturday night, making it a rather dangerous night to be out driving. With that said, I am EXTREMELY GRATEFUL for all of the awesome people that made it to Tuvalu on Saturday. You guys had great energy!

I had so much fun performing 31 songs, but I have to say that my favorite part of the night was when I played the last song. I ended my show with my original song “That’s Life,” and people in the audience were SINGING ALONG! I have never had this happen at a show, and it was one of the coolest moments I have ever experienced! People singing along to my songs? Absolutely amazing!

I am grateful that I was able to perform at Tuvalu Coffeehouse on Saturday. The audience seemed to be really enjoying themselves, and being able to make people happy through music makes me SO HAPPY! 🙂
