I refuse to sleep till I’ve penned down my thoughts about what just happened. This concert, Shut Up And Dance 2014, just concluded tonight. With that, 4 months of effort came to a head in a night filled with insane quick changes, mad rushing about on stage, and a finale that came together as a family to support each other.
SUAD 2014 was an incredible concert for me. 2 years ago, SUAD 2012 had me sitting in the audience, having failed Blast! auditions the year before, and seeing those of my friends who had gotten in up on stage. That feeling hurt. It hurt something fierce.
It sparked something in me, a sense of “I cannot stop till I’m up on that stage.” And here, 2 years later, I made it.
To say it was overwhelming is an understatement. It was, quite simple, breathtaking. To be a part of such an incredible concert, with such amazing people surrounding me.
And then to find that there was a video dedicated to the organising committee. Almost too much. They deserved it, and y’all made it happen. You guys are something special, really.
I am proud. Just, so proud. Of everyone involved.
I’ve waited 2 years for this moment. And I’m glad I did.
That’s all I have to say for now, need some rest and I’ll get back to you with a more detailed epxplanation soon.
