Driveway Concert

Through our Driveway Concert held during the coronavirus pandemic, I was able to give back to a city that has given me so much. More than 100 people stopped by my driveway or sat in lawn chairs in neighbors' driveways and yards, and social distanced between families, as Amanda, Leland and I shared pop and country music in our first event of the summer. It was the week before my high school graduation -- an event that almost didn't happen because of restrictions due to the virus. The concert sure brightened a difficult time for me, and I think the audience felt the same way. Thanks to everyone who came out!
