Way to go Scott MacIntyre of Scottsdale, AZ!!

Back in the day (we are talking like 2001-2003) I sang in a choir and was working towards my music education degree. You see singing has always been a passion of mine, shoot all the performing arts are!

Anyway I had the pleasure of meeting and performing with a ton of people who have gone on to do great things with their musical talent.

At one of the many choir concerts the MacIntyre family, 4 of the many musical lovers that came through my life, had the opportunity to perform one of their pieces in a concert. Here is a video of the song I remember them doing at a concert:

They were all amazingly talented musicians and were all so genuine and kind to everyone. They took care of each other and loved making friends, best of all they had a huge passion for music. You see the tallest guy there second from the left? That is Scott MacIntyre. He is blind but his musical talent has sort of taken the place of his eyesight with reagards to his senses if that makes sense. Whenever I heard him sing or play the piano I was lost in the magic of it. It is hard to explain.

His sister Katelyn is first from the left, his mother Carole is to the right and Todd is on the far right. They are all super talented huh?

Well Scott MacIntyre just advanced in the American Idol audition yesterday. Now before you run screaming because you despise the show or whatever I want you to hear me out. I am not an Idol fan, I watched the first season briefly but got bored. Anyway, the show is significant now because someone I know is advancing and because his story is so heartwarming. Here it is: Wait Fox news is having every single video of American Idol removed (even the ones people shot with their own cameras of the TV set playing the footage) so the video wont play. However, if you follow this link you can read about him. I’ve also got some images of the footage to share:

I cried when I saw the video from his audition (that I still think you can see here) and I am so stoked for him. He is seriously amazing guys, the video does not do him justice! Thanks to my mother in law for informing us of this info (we don’t watch the show and wouldn’t have known it was indeed him unless she had asked up about it.) Yay Scott! You rock and will blow everyone away.

Now go back to my previous post Better late than never- Delurking Day 2009, delurk and read about my 6 unimportant facts okay?

Oh and if you have noticed my site timing out now and then be advised I know about it and am very ticked off with my hosting provider. I have contacted them about it and am waiting for a resolution. Sorry about the inconvenience dudes.

  1. I tried to comment the other day and your site wouldn’t let me. I’m glad to know that it’s your site that’s messing up and not that you’ve banned me!

    I will root for Scott. But I will not watch American Idol.

  2. My daughter and I love American Idol. I watched him audition last night and it showed a clip of him playing the piano. He was incredible and has a great voice. I hope he goes far in this competition. I’ll keep you updated 🙂

    1. Yes, same for us… We’ll probably just TIVO it and fast forward through all the other contestant crap though. We are not huge reality TV fans at all.

  3. I’m glad you mentioned the site timing out… because I’m having the weirdest time EVER getting to some posts from different people. I thought it was just me, so I gave up thinking it was a glitch that needed time to be fixed.

    I hope your friend makes it!!! Wouldn’t that be so great?
