celine the goddess

last weekend i went to the celine dion concert in salt lake city with one of my favorite friends, heidi webster.  wow.  celine dion is in her 40s now, but she is looking good!  her body looks amazing and heidi and i were coveting her dresses and amazing boots all night.  i don't know if you've ever seen celine live, but it is an experience.  there's something deeply inspiring about watching someone do what they were born to do.  she is flawless!  
she does some pretty hilariously awkward thing on stage, but you can't help but worship her. somehow her quirkiness is hugely endearing.  of course, it helps that she's one of the most talented singers of all time.  but more than that, she's one of the most gracious performers i have ever seen.  she is a goddess.  
i know and love just about every song that she sang at the concert.  it's amazing to me that celine dion has managed to remain popular over the span of 20+  years.  some of her songs reminded me of my childhood in england (all coming back to me...thanks brooke!).  others reminded me of jr. high and some of the past year in college.  amazing.  i hadn't realized what a big part celine has played in my life. :)  thanks celine.
i couldn't help but feel a little emotional as she sang the prayer.  i pictured benji and i on the yase camp stage...he in his tux and me in my big black madrigals trash bag dress.  and then i pictured us attempting to sing through our tears at rob and amy's wedding luncheon.  love you benj!
we also ran into ben, jaremy, jamie, annie, jared and alan at the concert.  and i ran into melinda and alex at will call.
so many friends that i love.  a night i will remember forever.

  1. Good job on your blog, Becca! You're a talented writer. You can feel some of the passion you have come out in your writing. Maybe work on your capitalization just a little bit :)

  2. thanks, parl. um, i purposely don't use capitalization. it's overrated. but it shouldn't bug you anyway in the future since you never remember to read my blog. ;)
