I have my dream job!
I feel so blessed to be doing what I love for a living, and there's not a job out there that I'd rather have. :)
Yesterday was a fun day at the office, so to speak. You've heard me talk about Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, here and here. Well, I hadn't seen them in a while as they've been in the recording studio, so it was fun to spend the day, getting them ready for their Ellen Show appearance. We started at noon, with a scheduled taping at 5:30! Yes, you too can look as glamorous as the stars if you spend at least 3+ hours in hair and makeup. lol! It's funny how there's so much time spent getting ready, and then it's over in less than 4 minutes! In case you don't watch the show, here's the video of my handiwork, which is nothing compared to their awesome performance of "Tiny Light!" (warning: they really rock out at the end, so if you're viewing at work, you might want to turn the volume down)
And yes, they're really that good live! I was standing in the studio during sound check, as well as the performance and each take was incredible! I can't wait until they're back in LA to see a their whole show!
Oh, I forgot to mention a little "fun fact" about this performance. Do you remember the cute little girl in the movie "Love Actually," with the really big voice?
Olivia Olson as "Joanna" in Love Actually
Well she's all grown up, and singing background vocals for Grace Potter and the Nocturnals! Now you'll have to watch the clip again to look for her!
I love my job! :)
