V-Day Pt. 2: Ladysmith Black Mambazo

For our V-day celebration, my Manfriend and i had a delicious dinner that he made and ended the evening by attending a concert to hear the uplifting music stylings of Ladysmith Black Mambazo of South Africa. If you're not familiar with them, i suggest you give them a listen. Their concert was nothing short of charming. From their performances, to their interaction with the audience and each other, the concert was uplifting and entertaining. Many couldn't help but sing/hum along.( i say many, but i really mean myself and the Manfriend, i couldn't really hear anyone else above my humming).
My favorite part of the performance was when the lead vocalist informed the audience that anyone who wanted to go onstage and sing and dance along with the group was welcome to do so. A few brave souls went to join the group, dancing along while the audience cheered them along. In restrospect, i wish i 'd gone onstage(i suffer from an intense case of stage fright). However, I made a promise to myself that the next time i 'm present during an "audience call" i will be among the brave who dare to stand up and out in the crowd.
I'm wearing a frothy vintage pink dress that i reworked into something more modern and "me" for the V-day occasion. I think the dress used to be a prom dress or bridesmaid dress, i'll post pics of it later and let you be the judge.
