Meeting Fans

I think that what is most amazing to me is the fan support I get online and at my performances.  It's very humbling to know that something I enjoy doing makes so many people happy.  I had no idea a couple years ago that things would be so cool right now.  I'm traveling, performing, making music videos, recording in Nashville with amazing producers, meeting other amazing artists and music industry people, and I'm realizing God has a plan for me.

Every time I get an instant message or email from a fan, it's special.  I've made great close friendships online through Twitter and SKYPE and Youtube and Facebook.  It's weird how the internet lets me have friends all over the world and how me just singing in the bathtub when I was younger kind of started a lot of this happening.

There are some fans (friends) who have shared some struggles they are going through and I have had the chance to pray with them and encourage them to hold on.  There's been fans that have done the same for me and with me.

Meeting people for the first time is awkward sometimes, but I know it's probably awkward for them too. It's like they see SPENCER KANE, this singer guy, and I really hope they just see Spencer, this teen guy who is just like them going to school, playing sports or other hobbies and hanging out with friends when they can.

Thank you for supporting me and believing in me. Your encouragement is what helps me know I'm moving in the right direction.

Food for the Hungry

On October 22, 2012, I will be leaving for a week to the Dominican Republic.  I will be traveling with The Rubyz and Rachel Chan as a guest of Food for the Hungry.  We will be visiting a few different orphanages each day that week and I will get to spend time with some kids that are not as privileged as we are here in the United States.

By the end of the week, I will have the opportunity to sponsor one of the orphans.  I am so excited about this trip because I have never been outside the United States and also because I actually love kids and hanging out with them.

I hope to post some great pics and hopefully some video from down there.  I hope everyone checks out Food for the Hungry and supports them.
