Hello Everyone, it is Jocelyn here! I want to thank a few people that I didn’t get the chance to thank last Sunday night at the Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards (OEAA) due to my nervousness. So here it is:
Shout out to the all the members and workers at the OEAAs for making the show even possible. Shout out to all the winners who won Sunday night, shout out to the nominees that where nominated in all the categories, the performers who performed last night Olivia Johnson, J Crum, Ect. All of my mentors/influencers that are a part of my everyday life…YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. Shout out to my grandparents for driving me to all my shows, and selling t-shirts.
SHOUT OUT TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU WHO HAVE BOUGHT MY T- SHIRTS, EVERYONE WHO HAVE CAME OUT TO MY SHOWS AND SPENT MONEY TO WATCH ME PLAY LIVE WHILE SINGING ALONG, ALL THE PEOPLE WHO THREW TIPS IN MY GUITAR CASE DOWN TOWN ON THE CORNER, SHOUT OUT TO Victoria for turning back around in the Old Market and then asked me if I wanted to go to an open mic at the Side Door Lounge. THANKS TO THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK PHOTOS OR VIDEOS OF ME AND POSTED THEM ON SOCIAL MEDIA... YOU ALL HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO MY CAREER. THANK YOU.
And last but not least, I did mention my mother at the show, but on here I am going to be very specific and tell you why she gets the most deserving shout out anyone could ever receive.
My mom had 3 kids by the age of 20. I am 20 now and I can barely take care of myself. Mom raised us mostly on her own. She wasn’t always sure how she was going to do that, but she knew one thing; she wanted to give us the best life she could. And she wanted to make us happy. I didn’t appreciate her then the way I do now. I have grown up a little and understand. She is MY HERO!
A BIG THANK YOU to My Mother, I WOULD NOT BE HERE if it wasn’t for her sacrifices then and even now, still does every day.
