It was a long day today, but we feel so grateful for the opportunity to have visited Birmingham, AL. We left at 7:45 am in order to be on time for our first stop at a Children's Hospital. On the way into town, however, we could see the recent damage caused by the tornados and storms that recently occurred in this area. It was truly humbling. Please include the people affected by these storms in your thoughts and prayers.
We loved our time at the Children's Hospital! We performed right in the lobby, and the longer our program went, the more children came to watch. There really isn't anything quite like performing for children. We were so happy to be there, and I think that they were happy to have us!
After the hospital, we headed to the Alamabama School for the Arts to do a workshop. Today, the band and performers were combined in the workshop! One of the jazz combo's from the school performed for us as well, and they sounded awesome. There is a lot of talent at that school!
After our workshop, it was time to prepare for our Fireside. We headed over to building, where we were served very delicious burgers and dogs! Once again I must say how spoiled we are on tour! The Fireside was an incredible opportunity for us. It was a pleasure to talk with and get to know the members here.
After the Fireside, we boarded the bus for a red-eye drive down to Atlanta, GA! Stay tuned!
