Hi all! I haven't posted here in a while... sorry.. school has been so crazy, and this summer is going to be just as bad, so I've made up my mind to close my blog for a while. There are so many other wonderful ones, with much more expierenced bloggers/writes than myself, such as Lexi, Charmaine, Inna, and many more! Well, bye for now! Hopefully I will be able to come back soon :)

Song of Life - Full Video!

So sorry for the lack of posts! School has been way to busy and I've been in and out of town 3 times in the past 2 months, and will be again on Wednesday! Today, on mothers day, Libera posted the full video of Song of Life! Not gonna lie, it made me cry.

I have to admit, I think I probably cout for half of the views! I've been listening to it all day!! It seems a little more relaxed and natural than other videos. Hoodies and not robes, sleeves rolled up, hair not perfect, etc. and I really like that about this video! It fits the song nicely. Nice to see Josh in there as well ;)

Hamilton Review!

I'm now home in Texas, after seeing Libera in Hamilton! As some of you
might've seen I was going pretty crazy before, during, and after the concert,
and I'm pretty much still like that now. We, my aunt, uncle, and their exchange
student Marielly from Brazil, and I, arrived at the church much later than
planned, at about 6:45. I jumped out of the car and skipped/twirled/ran to the
end of the huge line outside. On my way down I ran into a few A/V and forum
members, as well as some new fans, many of whom said "wow! Look! You can get
Libera sweatshirts!" Ah, nope, but you can make them, haha. We ran into a bunch
of people my aunt and uncle knew in line, from various choirs, school,
etc. After about 10 minutes of dieing (or waiting, as everyone else would call
it) my uncle and I went to see if premium ticket holders could go in early. It
was a yes! I ran back down to get my aunt and Marielly and we all went inside. I
bought a program from Lexi who was helping to sell them, then proceded inside
the main area. The man at the door brought us to the first few rows and said we
could sit anywhere there. I saw some decent spots 3 rows back on the left side
and started to walk over there. Passing the front row I saw many fans I knew,
and was then offered a seat! I couldn't believe it! thank you so much to all of
ya'll who helped me get that seat, it was perfect. The other 3 members of my
group ended up sitting in the spots I'd originaly seen. I had a nice time
chatting with the people around me (Heather and her mom, Tom, Paul, Patrick,
etc.), I just hope I didn't annoy ya'll too much! Anyways, shortly after that
the concert began. As the first few boys walked out on stage I started shaking
even harder than before, doing anything I could with my hands to not accidentaly
smack my neighbors in the face from excietment. They began the Jubliate/Libera
chain and I just sat there with this huge cheesy grin on my face, that didn't
leave the whole time! I was able to make eye contact with several of the boys -
Daniel and Matthew Jansen in particular.  I also noticed some of them eyeing my
I love Libera hoodie and cowboy boots as the lights turned on. All of the songs
were phenomonal, and all the soloists were perfect! I sat through the first
half, mesmorized, just staring at the boys. When it was half time, or the
interval as they say, I got up to chat with the fans some more, and went to walk
around. On my way to get some water I accidentaly walked into Callum, who was
walking very fast towards the way I had just come. It was kind of funny
actually, because I was like "Oh! Sorry! My goodness, I'm so sorry!" and he
responded with "It's fine." then walked away. I also got to exhange a few words
with Big Ben, thanking him for the concert, etc. When the second half started I
was just as bad as I was before! When Song of Life began I was doing everything
I could to not sing along, including mouthing the words, covering my mouth, and
what not. It was just so beautiful, and made me cry! Going Home was amazing.
Daniel looked at me almost the whole time (or it looked like it, at least!). 
After the concert I really enjoyed talking to everyone! Sorry about the picture
thing with my uncle, I honestly had no idea what was going on.. but for anyone
reading this in the picture I won't post it! Also, thanks to Yuki from Japan for
showing me her Miracle of Life CD! It was so beautiful! Hopefully it will be for
sale in the US soon. On the drive home from the concert I couldn't help but shed
a tear. This might be my last Libera concert for a long while. Hopefully it
won't, but that's what my mom has said. Thanks to everyone who helped make this
trip special for me! I owe it to ya'll!

Pictures to come when I get home from school! :)

Toronto Islington Concert + Kitchener Concert

Sorry for the lack of posting on the concerts, but I've been soooo extremly bussy at school. Since I'll be missing 2 days I've had to get all my assigenments turned in by tomorrow! Tonight I still need to write a lyric poem, which everyone else has until Monday to do! Anyways, I'm here for a bit now so I figured I'd let you guys know that both concerts went great, and were huge successes! You can read reviews from link I've posted in previous threads, as well as on Paul30003's blog here! Both venues looked beautiful, and everyone has said the sounds was great for both.
Just one more day until I leave for Canada! Soooooo excited! Can't wait to see some of ya'll there :)
Now off to write my poem, lol.

Concert in London, Ontario

When I first heard the news that Libera would be singing in London, ON, I was certian I'd be going! "Daddy was born there! I'm sure he'd wana go back!" I thought, but turns out he was just there in October, and had no desire to see Libera, so I was stuck finding other arangements, which did work out nicely :) Unfortuntly, this meant no London concert, but luckly we have some awesome fans who have shared their reviews and thoughts!

From what I read, this concert was perfect, flawless, the best people have seen! If it's that good by the second concert, imagine how it will be by the 6th and seventh!

To read more on it, please check out Lexi's review on her blog here, or the reviews on the French forum here!

Libera to sing at Easter Mass

Today the bulitin for the  Church of Our Lady Immaculate in Guelph was updated to say:

"On Easter Sunday we will welcome the "LIBERA" choir from England who will join our choir at the 11a.m. Mass. In the evening they will perform a concert at 7p.m. in our Church"

That's great news for anyone who will be there! Actually, there's a slight chance that I'll be able to attend this service, too, as I will still be there on Sunday! The choir of the church is very lucky, as this indicates that they will be singing WITH Libera! Oh how jealous I feel! All that aside, it will not be broadcast over the web like previous venues have done on the USA tour, so those not going will unfortuntly not be able to view it.

Good luck, Libera! :D
