I recently had the great opportunity of performing in New York and London at the Titanic II Gala dinners. I had an amazing experience and feel grateful that I was a part of such a fun and interesting set of events. If you haven’t heard about the Titanic II, it’s a project headed by the Australian cruise company Blue Star Line. They intend to make a replica of the Titanic and launch the ship some time in 2016. You can read more about it here. Besides myself, Blue Star Line hired two other people from finding them on YouTube: Korean guitarist Sungha Jung, and vocalist Roxy Darr. They were both such nice and talented people and it was great getting a chance to meet some other YouTube musicians in person!
We spent 2 days in New York and 3 in London. When we finished rehearsing and practicing, I did have some time to check out some of the sights in both cities. My friend Megan (who’s been helping me with my videos lately) came with me as my companion and we had a great time together. It was so helpful having her there because she helped manage the scheduling with me and worked with the event coordinators to help them run things smoothly at the actual events. It can get pretty hectic once the event starts so it’s great to have someone there with you who can keep up with what’s happening during the evening and make sure you’re in the right place at the right time with all the proper equipment.
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by a feeling of humility from the opportunities I have been afforded over the past few years. I still can’t believe that because of my YouTube channel, I am able to make a living doing what I love, and that I am able to have all of these wonderful experiences while sharing my passion across the world. If you all weren’t supporting me in some way by watching my videos, subscribing to my channel, purchasing my music, sharing my videos with your friends and family, I wouldn’t be able to have this type of career and I’m just so grateful for all of your support. I really mean that and I can’t say it enough 🙂 Thanks for always being there!
