The Bull Run in Shirley Got a Surprise Singer Saturday Night
We had a great table in the back, where there was room to dance and Jeff brought out Claudette King, daughter of the late, great B.B. King himself. About 2 songs in, she said, "Hey, I'm looking for about 4 people to come up on stage with me." So, me, being the ever so shy one, ran up on stage. My niece, Abby, followed me, so I was so happy to be the "backup dancers" for such an icon. Little did I know, she asked if anyone could sing I said, "YES! I can sing!" After Ms. King did a blues riff, she handed me the mic and I let it all out. I figured that I would only have one chance of this my entire life, so I might as well let it go. I have to tell you, it was SO FUN! The crowd thought I was a plant! But, in the words of my dear brother, "She's not a plant, she's a shrub!" hahahaha! Ms. King even said, "YOU GOT CHOPS!" WHAT?!!! Unreal.
Top 3 days of my life:
