I couldn’t think of a more apt title for this post than the above photo…one of my prized possessions…the autograph of today’s birthday celebrant, the vibrant pixie performer Lindsey Stirling (1986). The picture, however, doesn’t do justice to the amount of pride in knowing that this talented artist actually took the time to place her mark in her biography to me to have forever.
The sheer amount of talent in her, however, is only outweighed by her heart; I was privy to an announcement on Twitter that she will be livestreaming at 2 PM, to raise awareness for human trafficking…now if that doesn’t show her love for the human race, I don’t know what will!
As you may recall, I have covered that fact that she is an entertainer like no other; her prowess with being a violinist who DANCES while performing is utter tenacity! The fact that she can do both and make wonderful contributions to the musical archives is more than enough to merit her place here on this blog. As covering her birthday on more than one occasion shows, I’m not a “bubblegum” believer and her place in my personal music collection is a testament to that.
