This month’s MTV is the concert at the Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida, a week ago.
It was a very rough show to do because the city is only 20 minutes away from the school where 17 children were killed.
I wasn’t sure if we should do our show that night. We were all still mourning for the horror that these people had gone through.
I kept asking my self, “Why have I wound up 20 minutes away from this school? Why me?”
But then I realized, “Why NOT me?”
Maybe our show would give these people a little relief from the grief they’d gone through, 24 hours a day for the entire week.
So, with a lump in my throat, I decided to do our show and try and give them 90 minutes of joy.
From the moment the curtain opened, I could feel that the audience wanted to forget for a little while and I was glad I decided to do the show.
You’ll see their reaction starting at the first blast from the band.
I hope we did give them some relief, but my heart goes out to everyone in that area.
And I cheer on the brilliant and brave students that have been protesting and marching.
What has our country become?
