Yesterday started Lucas' winter break from school. We have only two and a half months before he graduates, so we thought a little getaway was overdue. We had bought tickets to see Us the Duo in Charlotte a while back, so that's where we headed. I have followed their music for quite a while so thinking about seeing them live was so surreal! The road trip down was pretty uneventful, if you don't take into consideration the beyond nerve-racking traffic!
We arrived at the Fillmore where the concert was held. The concert began with an opening by Hailey Knox. At only seventeen years old, she is full of promising talent. She's going to go far! And finally, Michael and Carissa Alvarado graced the stage. We were so blessed to have bumped into familiar faces who let us in on their VIP spots, so even though my DSLR had been held outside, I was able to snag some sweet photos! The performance itself wasn't quite a performance- it was an exchanging of passions for music and intimate interaction with the audience. The husband and wife duo are beyond talented. I've never heard a harmony as beautiful as theirs. We hope to see them again someday.
( Stay tuned for Part II )
