As you may have heard, Monday’s show for Ann Michele King was an amazing outpouring of music, love and community. More than 1,100 people packed the sanctuary of FUMC, Richardson for this special show, benefiting Ann Michele and the King family.
Here’s the amazing view we had from stage:
It was just an amazing night. Most amazing of all was the outpouring of support. At this point, we’re estimating at least $27,000 dollars raised to help with medical expenses for Ann Michele, as she continues her seven year battle against cancer.
One of my favorite songs to do in our shows has been Elton John’s “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.” I get to sing it, and I LOVE singing it. And the entire band plays. It’s just one of those “big” numbers in our shows. And, as has happened several times before, it got a standing ovation Monday. It’s just a great effort by the whole band. You can hear it here:
What a great privilege to be able to be a part of this special show. What a crowd. What support for an incredible family, and incredible woman. I’m privileged to know Ann Michele and completely inspired by her faith and her courage facing her challenges. I know everybody feels the same way.
Of course, we all love Rusty too, and a part of why we did this show was to be there for our band-brother, and musical director.
We love you Rusty.
This one was for you too.
