“Everyday Holds The Possibility Of A Miracle”…
Hi Fan Scene Readers!!
I was having dinner at a local restaurant several weeks ago and a sign there caught my eye that said “Everyday Holds The Possibility Of A Miracle” and I thought to myself…hmmmm…I believe that’s true!! I also believe that there are all kinds of miracles and that each can be categorized relative to the person/situation that surrounds that miracle…and while some miracles are really big and literally a matter of life and death – others may seem small and inconsequential in the scheme of life, but, nonetheless important to the person(s) affected by them. So, now, as I’m sitting here writing this, I’m also thinking that I might just need a bit of a miracle and here’s the reason why…I recently began a petition drive meant to attract the attention of management at the Turning Stone Casino & Resort in Verona, NY, as well as, that of David and his management team relative to what I believe would be a perfect match for one of David’s fabulous concerts!!
For the longest time I have hoped that, at some point, David would perform in concert at the Turning Stone which is located in Verona, NY about 20 minutes from where I live and smack dab in the center of New York State. The showroom has a capacity of 750 while The Event Center there holds 5,000 people. In my opinion,The Showroom would be an ideal site because there is a totally unobstructed view of whoever is performing on stage there along with its’ intimate sort of atmosphere, but, The Event Center would be just awesome, too!! Amongst those who have performed at either are Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, Kelly Clarkson, Fergie, Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani, No Doubt, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire, to name, but a few!!
Well, back on Sunday, June 26th, I was hanging out just thinking about David’s awesome music (having attended his concert in Myrtle Beach just a month before) and I thought – well, why don’t I just call Turning Point to inquire as to whether a concert feauring David was a possibility…Anyway, I called and was able to leave a voice mail message for the talent manager there, Ms.Torrey. The next day, during my lunch hour, I called again (ok, I was sort of anxious lol) and was connected directly to her. We talked briefly and she told me that there had been interest expressed by Casino patrons and concert goers with regard to a concert featuring David. She asked if I represented him – a question which I truly did not expect and being the honest person that I am, I , of course, said “no”…anyway, totally taken aback by her question and not knowing what I should say next (it was really a “duh”, what were you thinking moment on my part lol) – the conversation ended and I thanked her for her time and put my cell phone back in my purse and I returned to work. It immediately occurred to me, however, – what if I had said “yes” – that I did represent David – might a negotiation for a concert have followed lol – and I haven’t been able to get that thought out of my mind ever since!!
Anyway (again with the “anyway” lol), I just couldn’t let go of this so…I began to think about what I could and should do next and although it took me a while to decide on my course of action – two weeks ago I began to circulate a petition which reads as follows: We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the Turning Stone Casino & Resort present a concert featuring David Archuleta:
My hope is that I will succeed in getting enough signatures – lots of signatures (and we all know that there’s strength in numbers) to further pique the interest of the talent manager there and of David and his management team, and for those of you who have read any of my previous posts – well, you know how determined I can be lol!! (((Manager’s note – yes we do Sharon!))) The fact that so many people have been willing to sign my petition(s) just gives me hope and although I might be asking for a bit of a miracle – I really believe that miracles do happen and so, David – if wishes were dreams and dreams all came true, I’d wish for my miracle – to see and hear you perform at the Turning Stone Casino & Resort in Verona, NY!!
