Convict Lake

The winds this day were gusting at something like 60-70mph at the water’s surface, causing mist to peel off and swirl high into the air. As you can imagine, the most powerful gusts were headed right towards where I stood on the small bridge separating the lake from the creek. Waves smashed against the rocks and I was nearly certain some unfortunate tree would break under the unrelenting force. It was a beautiful and humbling time to be here, at one of my favorite places.

Hello friends! Here’s me singing For Good with Kristin Chenoweth.

So, I’m almost to 1,000 followers (which is a lot for me).
I made my tumblr the day after this video. The 1st day of 2014. 
As some (potentially most) of you don’t know, I actually sang the song “For Good” with Kristin Chenoweth on New Years Eve in Vegas!
I was the first boy that’s ever duetted this song with Kristin, and it was an amazingly huge honor. She was looking through the crowd for someone to sing with, and I jumped up and screamed “KRISTIN I KNOW IT!!!” And the audience (btw, about 2,000 people I think) went crazy.
She talked to me for a couple seconds, and then invited me up. The video picks up from there. 
For those of you who do not know who Kristin Chenoweth is (in case you don’t) she was the original Glinda in Wicked on Broadway! (she was also in Pushing Daisies and Glee and GCB)

There were also some pics taken of her and I while we were singing, here’s one of those:

Enjoy, friends :)
I know I did. Best moment of my life by far.
