OTS by Jess: Day Twenty-One

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.” -Psalms 19:14

Needless to say, I haven’t blogged in a few days. Not because I’m bailing on this whole OTS bizz. No. I’ve been busy!

To highlight, I snagged a pretty significant interview this week. I interviewed the musical director for Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour. He was discovered by Stevie Wonder when he was just 18 years old. And he’s worked with hundreds of incredible artists like: Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Quincy Jones, Lionel Richie,  Paul McCartney… the list goes on and on.

It was a blast!

We ended up talking for about 20 minutes. I had to edit it down in order to air it, but he is a such a genuine and fun person. To top it all off, I snagged tickets to the show that’s coming to Texas in June. I am hoping that I can meet him the day of the show. It was probably the most significant interview that has been on our Central Texas station. And you bet I’m not stopping there! I’m on cloud nine and anxiously contacting more people in the music industry to get them on my show.

We’ll see how it goes. I’m so thankful for the confidence I have been given to do this. Many are scared of putting themselves out there, but in this industry you have to. You can’t be afraid to get shut down or rejected. And my interview with this musical director was proof that those risks can pay off.

I know I haven’t been in the industry terribly long however, I feel like I have just as much confidence, if not more, than those who have been in the business longer than I’ve been alive.

And that is a beautiful thing.
