My friend Kathie from Chosenperspectives sent me a video link yesterday for a performance on Georgia’s Got Talent. I watched it this morning and was astounded. I can’t even imagine having the level of concentration and balance that this woman has.
I suggest you watch the whole video, from beginning to end. I think every part of it is important. This video is just over 12 minutes in length.
The video that came up after the one above was amazing for a completely different reason. I decided to share it with you too. Again, watch it from beginning to end. The second one is about 6 1/2 minutes.
Both videos left me speechless and in awe. They also both brought tears to my eyes, running down my cheeks type tears.
When I woke up yesterday morning, there was an email from a blogging friend (Kathie chosenperspectives) in my inbox. She shared the link to an article about a Canadian artist who had created a light installation that opens a 2-way audio connection that allows people to talk across the Mexico-US border.
The article was SO moving. I wish I could copy the it all here but at least I can give you the links.
Video of a woman and child talking: http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1647181891569/ . (It is a 2 minutes 20 second video. If it opens up to the end of the talk, just move the bar at the bottom back to the beginning. I imagine it is doing that on my laptop because I have listened to it before.)
On September 4, I wrote a post saying how much I was enjoying watching America’s Got Talent this season. In that post, I shared videos of the three people or groups that were my favorites during the first of the semi-finals programs. Those three had also been among my favorites throughout the season. I was very happy when I discovered that they all made it into the finals.
The second semi-finals program was last Tuesday. The videos below were my favorite performances that night. Like the previous week, the ones I chose had been among my favorites throughout the season.
I was happy when two of my favorites that night made it into the finals, but disappointed that Luke wasn’t chosen. Everyone who moved on to the finals was excellent though, so I can’t fault the decision.
Tonight is the finals program. The Unbeatables have been the favorite of my favorites since the first time I saw them, so I’m hoping they will win. At the same time, I wish there was a way for everyone to win, because they all deserve it.
This season, I have fallen in love with America’s Got Talent. These are my three favorite performances from last night. All of their stories are incredible and inspirational and so is their music. (I didn’t see the whole show so I don’t know if my other favorite group performed.)
America’s Got Talent performances seem to consistently bring tears to my eyes. As I write this post, my tears are running down my cheeks. I started to cry when I watched the first video, but they began to pour as I watched the second one.
So many videos I’ve seen lately t have brought tears to my eyes. Just saw another one on Facebook. It feels good to experience tears from all these positive stories instead of from all the traumatic things going on in the world today.
