My Covenant Award Win

6 time nominee, First time Win 🙂 Blessed by this one.

Wednesday – Won Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year at GMA Canada’s Covenant Awards. Blessed that the extremely beautiful and talented Hollie Sackett-Reid could receive my award. She’s also one of my amazing radio promoters.

Thursday – Performed my second show case at Lafflines Comedy Club, and was filmed by The Comedy Network for their “Exposed” competition. It was cool. First time I performed on stage wearing underwear! Super glad my classmates James, Wayne, Hector and Kevin were there, and my comedy coach Jan too. They make me braver 🙂

Had a blast performing with friends and laughing a lot! My crazy friend Hector went almost buck for a potential $5000 prize. He’s from Venezuela, that’s what they do there lol

Also received a message that CBC was using Unstoppable for their hockey night in Canada Montage after the Toronto Maple Leafs/Boston Bruins game and before the Vancouver Canucks/Los Angeles Kings game. Listen out for it tonight! 200px-HNIC_Logo.svg

Friday – Took Kids to hang out with our good friends Daniel Ingram and Trevor Hoffmann at Daniel’s studio. The kids did some ” homeschool ” homework and wrote about Daniel’s career and what he does as a TV and Film Composer. They also got to do some hands on demo work on a new Disney XD Series  while they were there.

Later on that day, I had a photoshoot with some rad team members for the new Vancouver TV show I’m a part of hosting too 🙂

Saturday – hanging out singing for the Vancouver Giants staff and getting to take in a game. Might have the opportunity to sing for a game or two, or not, we’ll see haha. Maybe the Hockey Night in Canada thing will get me an in haha 🙂

Have to say, a lot in one week. Not without some challenges and distractions for sure, but because I’m choosing to not worry so much,  trust God, laugh more, celebrate more, and certainly will simply, carry on. #VERYBLESSED.
