Last night I saw Young Thug in concert. If you know me at all, even just on Twitter, you know how big of a deal this was for me. There was a point when the music to “Danny Glover” started and, I honestly don’t know what happened, but I could feel myself getting choked up. Here I was, all the way in the back barely able to see the stage (I’m 5′ 2″) and just the idea that Thug was up there performing was too much for me to handle.
So I get what this TV host was feeling when he was surprised with a performance by one of his favorite artists, Sharon Van Etten. The singer was in town for a concert but due to his hectic work schedule, John Campbell, host of New Zealand’s nightly news program Campbell Live, was unable to attend. Luckily, his colleagues stepped in to help out and surprised him with his very own Sharon Van Etten concert. He was so moved, he started crying and said, “It’s pathetic really—I’m 51 years old. Ah, but music sometimes just keeps you afloat, doesn’t it?” Damn, I feel you.
