So, last night I had the privilege of seeing the fabulous Melissa Etheridge in concert at Door Community Auditorium in beautiful Door County Wisconsin. Door Community Auditorium is a medium sized venue that packs a wallop of acoustical brilliance into every production. And Melissa Etheridge’s concert was a prime example of that acoustical brilliance.
Melissa Etheridge is my hero.
The concert opened with the rich strum of her guitar that was heard before we saw Melissa and the fun began. I go to lots of concerts and performances so why is Melissa Etheridge my hero? Because her passion for what she does enables her to make her “work” fun. `
Solo or as part of a team
This particular part of her tour was Melissa’s “solo” This is M.E.concert. That means there were no other “team” members (aka band) present to back her up. That didn’t stop Melissa…in fact it inspired her to utilize technology to incorporate rhythm, harmony and back up guitar into her music. With some magical technological sleight of hand, her audience was entertained by a full “band” accompanying Melissa’s amazing songs. This was her last “solo” performance on her tour and tomorrow, she re-joins her “team” and continues to share the Melissa Etheridge creativity.
If you love what you are doing, it is never “work”. Your passion will give you the fuel to make it on your own or with the back up of a team. The energy comes from within and generates enthusiasm from your audience. Whether you are having a day where you need to fly solo or if it’s a day with the support of a well tuned team, loving what you do will give you what you need to succeed.
