It has been a great year for Thompson Square, who just scored their 2nd consecutive ACM Award for Duo of the Year! Time helps to heal all wounds, but for anyone who has lost a parent, you know how difficult it is to deal with such a heartbreaking loss. Last year at the ACM awards, Shawna had just lost her beloved father, and when she and Keifer performed at the ACM All Star Jam after the awards show, I happened to take a photo after she had just explained that winning their first ACM Award just days after her dad’s passing was quite bittersweet. OMG! When I saw the HUGE orb onstage with them, I literally got the ‘holy ghost goosebumps!’ Check out the picture and hear what Thompson Square had to say one year later about that picture too….
I had sent this picture above to Shawna & Keifer’s manager last year after the ACM Awards, and when I never heard back from them, I thought maybe they thought I was crazy for sending it to them. I included a note about how none of my other photo’s had any ‘orbs’….just this one, and it was right after Shawna said that she was dedicating that ACM win to her Dad, her ‘angel.’
But when we saw Thompson Square this year, and I mentioned the photo, Shawna’s excited reaction was, “OMG! It was you who took that photo?” She told me before our interview that she did not know where the photo came from, but it meant a lot to her! Listen to our unedited interview here!
I have a photo that I took of my own father’s memorial totem pole, that has a strange red ‘orb’…and when I enlarged the orb, I swear it looked like my Dad’s face! I personally believe in ‘Angels’ and that my Dad, brother and my Grandma who are all in Heaven, are my ‘Angels’ who watch over me and keep me safe!
Have you ever taken a photo that had an ‘orb’ that you believe was an ‘angel’ in your life? Do you believe in Angels?
