The most extraordinary and overwhelming 7 minutes of my life. Late on Sunday afternoon 7th May, 2017, history was made when Jared played the guitar for the very first time at any con anywhere in the world. And I was there to see it!!! I had hoped and prayed and dreamed that he would one day play or sing during a con, thinking if it ever did happen it would be at the one of the numerous US Creation cons or perhaps even JiBcon in Rome. Never in a million years did I think I would get to witness his debut in my very own country or that it would be so emotional.
When Rob and the guys came on stage carrying a guitar, I was sure he would hand it to Jensen. That we would get a little acoustic encore to Jensen's amazing performance during the concert the night before. But when he passed it to Jared instead, I almost couldn't believe what I was seeing. I remember turning to my best friend Kimberley and shouting "OMG he's gonna play for us!! Jared is gonna play for us!!" And I was shaking and crying and trying to remember how to put my phone on video mode and the audience was screaming and clapping and cheering and it was just nuts!!!
And then Jared started playing and the audience fell silent. The emotion and the love in the theater was electric. We were witnessing something very very special and every single person felt it. And it multiplied when we started clapping and then singing. It was pure magic and something I will never ever forget!! I cried the whole way through but they were tears of joy and happiness and pride and love, lots and lots of love.
Bravo, Jared for conquering your fears and doubts and thank you from the bottom of my heart! ♥♥♥
