Friend of Urban Kings Music Group, DJ Craig EC was telling me a story about a young lady, Dena Donham, whose mother wrote to him about her daughter wanting to meet Scotty McCreery (Last seasons American Idol Winner). She was born with a disease and this is her story how DJ Craig EC made her dream come true, telling her story through her Facebook. Big Shout out to DJ Craig ec and the 100.9 Heat Staff!
My Scotty Experience.
I have loved Scotty McCreery, since the very beginning. Ever since I heard him sing “Baby Lock Them Doors.” I bought the songs he covered on American Idol, every week off of iTunes. He is the only person I have ever cared to vote for on American Idol. (Previous Seasons, included.)
When he was given the title, I cried. I was so happy that he won. He truly deserved it and, I completely idolized him by the time the season was over. I wanted nothing more than to see him in concert. I would tell my family that I just wanted to be close enough to reach out and, touch his hand.
My mom, found out that Scotty, was coming to Lancaster Ca. I freaked because, nobody I love ever comes to my town. It’s like, overlooked or something. Hahaha! Anyways… My mom got in contact with a local radio host named DJ Craig EC, (Through a Co Worker/Friend of hers. He happened to be best friends with Craig EC.)
My mom wrote the DJ a letter telling him my story, all I’ve been through and, had to overcome. (I have Cerebral Palsy! I haven’t been able to walk without assistance, since birth. Doctors told my then teenage mother, that I’d never amount to anything in life. I guess I proved them wrong because, I’m nearly a high school graduate with huge plans to go straight to college and become an entertainment journalist.) Anyway, enough back story. Hahaha!
So, Craig EC had me come up to his radio station and, handed me 3 tickets and, 2 Meet N’ Greet passes to Scotty’s concert, which happened to be 2 days away. (Tonight.) Of course, I was hysterical when he handed them to me. I thanked him so many times. I couldn’t wait to experience this with my mommy and, little sister. (Who are also huge fans.)
Today, I woke up knowing that tonight, I’d be meeting somebody I idolize. My sister got up and, we spent hours in the bathroom while she did my hair and, makeup. After everyone was ready, we headed over to the venue. I had butterflies all day and, they only intensified when we arrived.
After along wait Craig EC came up and told us that Scotty would come and meet us down stairs apart from all the others because, I couldn’t go up stairs like everyone else. My mom and, sister got their cameras ready because, they wanted to record my meeting with him.
Finally, Scotty made his way down the stairs following Craig EC and, Security. He walked straight up to me and, held out his hand. I took it and, by that time, I was on the verge of tears. He then ASKED PERMISSION, before hugging me. I hugged him and, I said: “I love you!” I was choked up and, fighting back tears. He then replied: “Awe, thank you! I love you too.” I WAS DYING INSIDE. TRYING SO HARD NOT TO COMPLETELY LOOSE IT. Then he took pictures with both my sister and, I. Then my mom, asked him if we all could take one together. He smiled and, said “Of course! Of course!” Security, was rushing him but, he didn’t care. Then he signed both of our Passes and, told me he’d be looking out for me in the crowd. He gave me another hug and, started to walk away. He noticed he had forgot to hug my sister again and, ran back to hug her.
After we met him, he performed a full setlist of songs. (Without a break.) I knew every single word to all of his songs. He dedicated “The Trouble With Girls” to us California Girls. ♥ After running through the setlist, he came out for an Encore. Then it was all over as quickly as it began.
Tonight, was the best night of my existence. I will never forget a moment. The way he treated me. The way he hugged me. He was so, so, so, genuine. He didn’t have to tell me he loved me but, he did. He didn’t have to come down and, meet me downstairs but, he did.
He will always and, forever be FLAWLESS to me. ♥”
