Standing Room Only
Luke and Drew had their coming out party to a standing room only crowd on Saturday night. It doesn’t matter the room was rather small. It just matters that it was packed out.
I predict one of these days this very unique couple will look back on the night as a turning point in their lives. It will be the night they took the big chance. The night they went way out on a limb. A night they could have failed miserably and made themselves look like fools.
On March 14, 2009 Luke and Drew boldly walked on a stage and did something they never have done before. Backed by a very talented band, they performed seven of their very original songs in front of a live audience.
And as they say in baseball, they knocked the doggoned cover off the ball.
Using the power of technology, this incredible duo mixed a little (okay a lot) of humor along with their great music. Most of their songs were introduced by such characters as Happy Harriett, Emotional Terry, Darlene Wiggington and LaKeisha.
But in spite of the laughter, everyone in the audience was reminded of the innocence and power of love. And that is exactly what their music does.
But the lesson here is not about entertainment but rather much more about life.
Not many people figure out that in order to achieve excellence you have to put yourself out on a limb. Out there where you know it could break.
In order to grow you have to be stretched.
In order to win you have to be willing to lose.
Luke and Drew put themselves in that position last night. And in the process they took a giant step on the path to winning in life.
And they took that step in front of a standing room only audience.
It just don’t get any better than that.
