The Boy-Child performs LIVE on 99.5 The Hive!!

I suppose The Boy-Child is about to lose his anonymity here...  This is what happens when The Mom is incredibly proud of his achievements and accomplishments, right?  I am stepping away from my usual postings about card creations to brag just a little about The Boy-Child (aka Aaron).  As he has entered the college years, I find myself wanting to share more and more about the great things he's been doing, starting with his recent courageous acoustic performance!

Even though this is posted as a video...  It really is only a music clip.  Aaron was invited to perform LIVE on the air with Lanny Frattare (legendary voice of the Pittsburgh Pirates) last Monday afternoon...  In this clip, you will hear Aaron discuss how he first learned to play the guitar about a year-and-a-half ago.  Lanny then asked Aaron to give the weather report while playing an accompaniment on his guitar.  My favorite part of this clip is that Aaron really seems to have fun with his weather report this way -- Personally, I feel he should ALWAYS do the weather just like this!! :)

In this next clip, Aaron performs a song he learned only the week before...  The name of the song is 'Dirty & Left Out' by The Almost.  Aaron is self-taught on the guitar.  He started playing after his best friend, Ben, joined the military and bequeathed his guitar to him.  I could go on and on about the positive influence our favorite young marine has had on Aaron, but I will simply say that if there was any event in Aaron's teenage years that has meant a great deal, it was this generous gift that Ben shared...  Playing the guitar has helped Aaron express himself and grow as a talented young man.  There isn't ever a time that I hear him play that it doesn't bring a tear to my eye and a smile to my heart.  I am thrilled to be able to share this with you...

As always, your comments are welcome and very much appreciated.  If you have taken the time to share in this proud-mom moment, I thank you.  If you are interested in hearing more from Aaron, we invite you to listen in on his Wednesday Night Show (8-9pm EST) HERE (this link opens in Windows Media Player)...
