Star Struck

Did you see me perform with TAIKOPROJECT at the 81st Academy Awards?  It was amazing!  The past two days, we saw Alicia Keys, Zach Effron, A.R. Rahman, John Legend, Whoppi Goldberg, Queen Latifa, and of course, the host Hugh Jackman!  Before we were waiting to go on to do our piece, Courtney and I were waiting backstage and saw Cuba Gooding Jr., Seth Rogen, Christopher Walken, and Kevin Kline!  They had to pass right by us in a small hallway and acknowledged us which made me really, really nervous because it made me realize that whoa… we’re at the Oscars!!!  But I regained my confidence and went out and nailed the song.  All the drummers and dancers did great.  Props to you all!

photo-2Cameras were not allowed into the Kodak Theatre, but they let us take it in to the Mann Theatre which served as our dressing room area.  Here’s a picture of Courtney, Taylor, and me with our Academy Awards credentials which are basically passes to get in and out of the Kodak Theatre and through security.
