Today was undoubtedly a lot of fun. I got up and ate breakfast, then I was off to morning worship a little early so I could get good seats. Bellarive was our lead worship band again this year. THEY ARE SO GOOD! You can always feel God in the room when they perform – it’s pretty awesome!
Afterwards I met up with Camp pastor John Nix, where I showed him the poster I made for him. He liked it very much, and he even posted me on his Instagram!
Then we all had instrument clinic, where Sherri Gould shared with every vocals kid at Camp Electric her tips and tricks for vocal health. It was really neat to hear what she had to say, and we all learned a lot from her! She is always appreciated here.
So then, there was the Tom Jackson Production session, where we get to learn about live stage presence from the man who trained Taylor Swift, NEEDTOBREATHE, and a lot more bands that you probably listen to. He always gives us very valuable information, and my camp notes were filled last year with his stuff, and this year is no exception.
We then had a concert from Mr. Talkbox, formerly of TobyMac and Diverse City. I have grown to love Mr. Talkbox, and seeing him up on stage four feet away from me was a very neat experience. He brought a Saxophone and Trumpet player, which added a very jazzy element to his performance. I had so much fun!
Before I knew it, I was waiting for my two-hour instrument clinic teacher (I had no idea who it was) and before I knew it, Tauren Wells of Royal Tailor walked in to teach us. Crazy cool! He talked to us about warming up, and had us all share our story. He shared with us his as well, and was very humble about everything. I admired that very much!
Free Time is for another couple hours after clinics, and since KJ-52 is my favorite, I headed to Free Time with KJ-52. He did freestyle charades, where we acted something out and he rapped about it while he guessed. Then he had us play Headbanz with him – a game where he had the card on his head and we fed him clues while he rapped. I absolutely love him! I got the chance to talk to him and he said he liked my poster so much that he wants to take it home when Camp is over. That was pretty cool. He also signed my ukulele! He also filmed a little video for us – head over to our Instagram page below to see it, it’s pretty rad!!
The evening concert was We As Human and Tenth Avenue North. I was all the way up front for both, and these bands differ a LOT in style, but both were so good! Mike Donehey is very humble, and shared with us the inspiration behind some of his songs, showed us new ones, and came back out for an encore. He stressed that all the work that goes into a show is not because of the people on stage. How cool is that?
All in all, today was awesome. I loved getting to witness everything I did today, and it’s truly a blessing to be here again. Tomorrow night is City Harbor and TobyMac, so tune in then for some more awesomeness tomorrow!
