Stephanie Newton here, thinking about heroes today. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. For a while now, one of my 14 year old daughter’s heroes has been an Australian songwriter and singer by the name of Brooke Fraser. The first song my daughter learned to play on the guitar was one of Brooke’s songs that she wrote for Hillsong United.
I think my thinker daughter is intrigued by a woman who reads, thinks goofy thoughts (sometimes really profound thoughts), writes these thoughts down into songs, and then sings them. Beautifully.
So...once in a great while, if you’re really lucky, you get to meet one of your heroes. Tonight we’re going to hear Brooke Fraser in concert. Cool, huh?
My daughter is beside herself with excitement. I’m pretty excited, too! I'm posting a video so you can see her too! Enjoy :)
