There is something about the pre show prayer that tends to lift me up. It tends to prophesy and predict the performance. I had been out to the front of house and had noted that the crowd was not as large as in years prior, maybe it was the rain.
We played the Zeit Musical Festival last year, but this last run has been different. I've been seeing Monae giving that look over to stage right similar to the one that Jordan gave Marv Albert when he was dropping all those threes against Portland in the playoffs.
I told Joey [percussion] that something amazing was going to happen. I didn't know when, but I knew that it would. It did. Somewhere between painting and breaking down to a pulse of Mushrooms and Roses, JM inspired a call that the crowd responded to like willing background vocalists. I would tell you more about it, but there are some notes that sound better when they are sung.
Thank you Freiburg, we will be back for y'all spicy behinds! Next stop Paris!!
