We stayed for the whole show, even tho his performance was one of the first. I was so impressed with the performances. The music was awesome & there was such enthusiasm, passion and joy from the teachers & students. It was such a pleasure to be there! I ended up getting my dose of creativity & inspiration without Sir Ken. ;-)
I've posted on YouTube the final performance of the concert, Shut De Do performed by high school students from Central HS, Stonewall Jackson HS, & Strasburg HS. I was so impressed with the director, Thomas Tutwiler. I loved what he said before they started singing & I'm so glad I got it on video. [Side note: Chiro-sis started the clapping fest for him]. The quality isn't the best, but I'm happy to have a record of it.
Everyone is saying our country's in trouble, our young people are in trouble. I will tell you I worry about that, too. But in the past 72 hours, I've worried about that a lot less because if these young people behind me are samples of what our future holds for us, my friends, we're going to be OK . . . . Shut the door in the face of all darkness that's out there . . . let some light come into this world. ~Thomas Tutwiler
