Allison Merten: The Wedding Singer

Last week, I blogged about how what an honor it was to perform at my sister’s wedding.

I had gotten feedback from people about how they enjoyed the performance and how they thought it fit in perfectly with the ceremony. Wanting my sister’s wedding to go perfectly, I couldn’t have asked to have heard greater things! 🙂

Maison Meredith Photography, the photography team who photographed the picture above (in addition to ALL of my album photography), wrote a blog post this week that made me reflect on my wedding performance and being a musician in general.

The blog post is called “Impressing Others: Riches and Praise.” It talked about how people want to receive compliments from and impress others but how really we need to think about what we can do to better someone else’s life.

The part of the blog post that I enjoyed the most was this:

At the end of your life, what do you want to have lived for? What do you want your legacy to be? One that was known for making your OWN name look great? Or one known for putting others first + one who was generous?

The reason I do music is because I want to share my talent with others, and I want to bring them happiness.

I can only bring happiness to a limited number of people if I stick to performing at my typical venues of restaurants and coffee shops. What better way to bring happiness to people than to perform at their special events?

Maison Meredith Photography got me thinking about how I can improve someone else’s life. If I can perform music for your special event and make your special event even more special, I want to do it! 🙂

Check out the new page on my website, where you can contact me about performing for your event.

I hope to hear from you! 🙂
