Wonder no more. The diaries of several sad cats have been discovered, and it provides great insight into the workings of the feline mind...
Well, by now, i’m sure you know what a BIG time of year it is for Cities97! No, i’m not talking about Thanksgiving, Black Friday, or the holidays, in general. I’m talking about the week leading up to the Cities97 Sampler Vol 25!
It’s a huge week for us. The Sampler comes out THIS THURSDAY, and, in case you’ve been living under a rock, 100% of the proceeds go to MN charities. That’s HUGE. So, we really focus on doing it up big, to raise as much as we can for these deserving organizations.
Plus, let’s not forget about the incredible performances, donated by so many artists. Performances, by the way, that can only be heard ON THE SAMPLER! So, it’s good for the community, it’s good for the listener, and everyone at Cities97 couldn’t be happier about it.
This year, it was my job (and honor) to spend the weekend leading up to the Sampler promoting it on TV. So, Saturday morning, i got up nice and early, and made my way to Kare11.
Now, you may not know this, but i actually have a song on this year’s Sampler. The last time i had a song on the Sampler, it was Vol. 16, with my song, “Talk to Me”. So, i really feel blessed to have my song, “Make Me Crazy”, as the 3rd track on disc 2 this year (that’s right. this year’s Sampler is a double-disc treasure!).
Below is the video of my interview, dishing on all the Sampler details, followed by a performance by me and my background singers, AJ Eskeridge and Bryna Tally.
Then, on Sunday, i made two appearances on KSTP 5, one at 6:40 and one at 8:40am. Here, we got down to the serious Sampler talk. Check it out. (truth be told, it was the first time i saw and got to hold the Sampler...only for it to be taken out of my hands the SECOND we were off the air! They are serious about keeping it safe ‘til Thursday!!!)
Mercy Academy, a Kentucky all-girls' Catholic school, is hoping to send a new message to girls. It's a creative and ambitious campaign, for sure. I love the idea of empowering young women to go after their dreams, and feel capable of achievement in the world.
"Don't wait for a Prince, Be able to rescue yourself"
"You're not a princess. But you can still rule the world"
Time will tell whether or not this campaign will become one of many messages like this out there, but it got me thinking...what do YOU think?
Let me know your thoughts...love it? Not so much? I want to know what YOU think.
