Sitting at the airport waiting to load on our plane, I’m so thankful for this amazing opportunity. It’s not everyday that you get to perform a show halfway across the world with people you absolutely cherish.
To introduce myself my name is Grant Jackowski. This summer has been a great and terrible summer all in one. I’ve made amazing memories with really good friends and now we’re all on our way to London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland to perform a show that we’ve all worked so hard on. However, my dad passed away three and a half weeks ago to a long battle against cancer. It’s been a little hard for me to go on this trip, but I’ve gotten a lot of reassurance that this is what my dad would want me to do. I’ve also received a TON of love and support from family and friends who have helped me through this terrible life event. Most of who are coming on this trip with me. I was excited to come back home and tell my dad all about this opportunity but now I know that he’ll be there with me in spirit and gets to watch everything happen.
So to EVERYONE who has supported, donated, and cared I speak for all of us when I say thank you so so so much. It means the absolute world.
Now let’s get this started!!!
