Jaci concert

Back from the best concert I've been to so far. We were the second row back from the stage. Plus one came out first and did songs from their album. Some were from "The Promise." They also had the audience participate in their songs. Plus one consists of five young boys in their teens. I expect they will be around for a long time. We got seats in the right area, because for neither Plus One nor Jaci Velasquez did Mom and I have to wear earplugs. Plus One did not do any dancing, because one of their members, Jeremy, sprained his ankle while playing basketball, Jeremy, however, did sing with the rest of the group. After Plus One came Jaci Velasquez, the one who I came to see. Mom was able to take me to the stage and she shook my hand while singing "If This World." Everybody was screaming, "I love you, Jaci," "You go, girl'" and "your awesome!" She told us that she loved it and that we take the cake.

Everybody was screaming, "I love you, Jaci," "You go, girl'" and "your awesome!" She told us that she loved it and that we take the cake. Mom took me to buy some souvenirs and I got two T-shirts, a Plus One and a Jaci Velasquez. When we were back in our seats, she sang some more from the Crystal Clear album. She also had Pete Orta sing a song. After two more songs, she said thank you and God bless. But then she came out and did one more song.
Afterwards we stood in line for an hour to get her autograph. While standing in Jaci's line Mom was able to run over and get plus One's autograph as well, all five members. When we arrived at Jaci's end of the line, she remembered me from when I came up to shake her hand
"I wanted to say `Hay, what's up! What's happening!"'" She signed my shirt, and said "God bless you girl." Plus One had to sign a book, because their T-shirt was black and they had nothing that would show up on black. I got to shake her hand again, and I said, "I like your hair," which I got to feel. It was longer than mine.
"My hair's kinda big today. It's all frizzy." I said, "I have my hair braided or I'd show you how long mine is."
"Long hair's the only way to go," she said, "They say guys like it. God bless you again," she pinched my arm in a friendly fashion as we left.
"You too," I said over my shoulder to her. What I liked most about my conversation with her is that we talked as if we knew each other all our lives. We talked as if we had been best friends since who knows when. She even shook my mom's hand.
There were things I wanted to tell her that I didn't get to, but that's cool. I wanted to tell her I was the same age as her, and that someone told me that every time God sees a girl with long hair, he smiles. I should have put this first, but I thank the Lord for this night, sitting where I could shake
Jaci's hand, being able to meet and talk with her, a prayer answered. Thank You, Lord for this night, I hope I will be able to see her in concert again some day and sit where I did tonight. Not only did she remember me, but during the concert she remembered a girl who had been at her "God So Love the World" tour. "You grew up," she said, "You weren't supposed to do that."
Some people laughed at this remark. Before the concert I saw Melinda with a friend, she was buying a necklace, I said bye to her before I went to sit down. Since Plus One was all guys, the girls, including me, went wild. I, however, did not go as wild as the rest. I did get their autographs, and I did shout along with the rest of the people, so maybe I did get a little crazy, but I don't know how crazy to tell the truth. All the girls screamed as soon as they knew the concert would start, even before Plus One appeared on the stage. After the concert I saw Tara, another girl from my church,
"I saw you go up to shake her hand," said Tara, "I told Annie, 'That's SARAH. I know her.'" After getting Jaci's autograph, we left the theater and came home. I'm still high on the excitement of the show. Mom told me on the way home, that when Jaci sang she had such a glow on her face, "Like when she sang Adore, she just had such a glow on her face." Jaci told us during the concert that one of the coolest things during the past year is that she got to make a Spanish record. She said she got a lot of flack for doing the record, "Llegar at. People saying, "I can't believe you did that," and "I can't believe you left the church!" She told us that she did the record for her Grandparents because they don't speak good English and that sometimes we forget what it is to be Christian. "Our job is to reach the world. And that the cool thing about this record, is I can get on my knees and sing in Spanish." She did a song from her Spanish record after asking if it was ok with us.
Fine by me, I love Spanish, that's another thing I wanted to tell her. I still thank God for the little bit of my life that came in contact with hers, for that very small space in my life that I got to talk, know and touch Jaci Velasquez life. I hope I can find a fan club, because if I can, I'm joining, no matter how much money it costs. Because the few moments I spent with her will always remain precious to me. What I like about her is that she, like me, is so full of energy, life and high Spirits. I am so very glad I was able to go, with God's help of course, to the concert, one of the best I've been to in my life. I can't even remember what went on in the Big Mouth concert, I was very young then. But this concert, I'll remember for the rest of my life. And now you, readers, know all about it too. The shouting and screaming of the girls as Plus One came on the shouting of the I love you's at Jaci the sound of me yelling "You're awesome!" and the friends I saw there, thank the Lord for that too. I'm so very glad I was able to see Jaci. The concert just increased my interest in her. She is such a beautiful person, high spirited, joyful and not ashamed of what she believes in. I love her, I fell in love with her the moment she sang her first note onstage. Maybe even before that, though, I probably wouldn't have known I had done it. I fell in love with her when she reminded me that Christians are supposed to reach the world. I really hope she has a fan club, I'm joining it. Thank God for allowing me to go and see the wonderful, beautiful person sing. Her dark hair, her full hair that falls to her waist and the up beat personality typical of us young women. And the message of abstinence, that Mom read to me in the paper, that is so important in today's society. Again I hope, with God's help, to see her again and sit where I did during tonight's performance. I'm glad I found the web site and got the tickets way back in June of this year. If I hadn't been looking for colleges, I would not have known about the concert, thank You Lord for leading me there. When she shook my hand I had the biggest smile on my face, and I also had a big smile when she did the song from her Spanish album. I love Spanish, I wish I had someone to speak it with outside of class. I can't sleep, I'm still on cloud nine and a half from the concert, and it's about twelve o'clock. I know I should try to sleep, but I don't know if I can. I've been waiting for a month, I wish I could do this night over again, I enjoyed myself so very much. I had a great time. Again I thank my heavenly father for this most wonderful day, evening, and night. I'm finally done, I think, for the night Goodnight all. I'm going to sleep.
