Zac had been talking about this surprise date for weeks ahead of time. I kept trying to guess what it was, but he wouldn't let on about any of the details. Finally, the evening came and he told me we were going to a concert. An India.Arie concert. My mouth dropped open and a huge smile engulfed my face. I love India.Arie. Her music is guaranteed to make this awkward white girl dance, no matter my mood. When I'm needing a pick-me-up, I put her tunes on and dance around the house. She's GOOD.

We made our way down to the college of St. Catherine's and approached the concert hall. People of all colors and styles were filing nonstop toward the doorway. Energy, excitement, and anticipation filled in all the empty spaces where someone wasn't standing. We found our seats, high up and directly in front of the stage.

The concert was truly phenomenal. She captured my attention the entire time with a delightful, genuine, fun performance. She even got this white girl to dance a little, although I felt shy sandwiched between beautiful black people who put my moves to shame! What a great night!
