In an environment where I started smoking, drinking and parting every day it was extremely cathartic being able to experience a flawless performance. I know everyone is entitled to there own opinion and their experience. This blog is solely going to be my experience and how the performance affected me.
There are many reasons why I enjoyed this performance. First of all, I was given a free ticket at the ticket booth and I didn’t even have to identify my self. And as we were waiting to get into the show I met Catlin who is extremely pretty and was so down to earth and I had an amazing voice.
For me personally, I really enjoyed the show emotionally and it meant a lot to me seeing the performers and the audience be so dedicated to singing the carols. Furthermore, I felt so guilty about all the promises that I had broken, all the money I spent on useless things, people that I let down and for wasting a year of my life to instant gratification. And as I was listening to “O Come, All ye faithful” I had this epiphany that was telling me to straighten out my priorities and it is never too late to change. For me, I will never forget this Carol and I will most certainly go to another one whenever I am feeling hopeless.
