Had to share because this was such a cool moment at Garth last night! -Billy D
Leading up to the show we held a contest for Garth tickets called “Prizefighter” where folks could submit the story of someone they knew that was fighting some adversity. Our winner had suffered through and beaten Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the very young age of 20. During our meet and greet with Garth she told the story of how she was actually supposed to try out for The Voice on the day she was diagnosed, and subsequently had to begin her treatments and never got a chance to sing. Garth and Trisha were so moved as she told her story that they offered her the chance to sing with them during soundcheck for the following day’s show.
That obviously went well, because Garth brought her on stage to sing at Sunday night’s concert:
Here is a very happy Danielle El-Jor, with The Brooks’ and her friend Amanda who nominated her for the contest. 🙂
