These are moments I live for. I had the blessing of performing at this year’s Live at Lunch in Oshkosh. Everyone there was so kind to me including this beautiful soul who has undergone several heart surgeries over the past years. I’ve never felt so much love in one little girl’s arms.
I cannot express my gratitude for this country and all who have fought for us. Yes, there are many issues occurring nationwide (wars, terror, difference of cultures…) but we are truly a blessed nation. There is so much beauty that is sometimes hidden by negative stories on the news and social media.
My favorite way to show my love and appreciation for America is by singing our Anthem. After Cory Chisel’s OUTSTANDING performance, I was honored to sing the Anthem for this year’s 4th of July fireworks at the Leach Amphitheater. It was a very heartwarming night.
Thank you Oshkosh for welcoming me back so kindly to the place where my music all started! It’s great to be here again. I wouldn’t be where I am TODAY if it weren’t for your constant love and encouragement.
My mom caught a photo of Laine and me while in LA for American Idol. This was before any of our auditions started. You might know that Laine won this amazing contest! (Thanks for taking this photo mom!)
It was a wonderful gathering with my team and kind supporters of my Be Kind movement. Together, at our February benefit, we raised $11,000 and formally delivered the check on Sunday. We all enjoyed pizza and cake and many warm hugs. God bless Community for Hope for ALL you do. Love, Franki
