They Say Don’t Meet Your Heroes

Good morning beautiful humans, happy Wednesday! Thanks for spending part of your morning with me. Welcome to Life with Lane

I remember the 1st time I heard the song “You Put a Move on My Heart”. I’m talking about the Quincy Jones version that Tamia sings. That was the day I fell in love with Tamia’s voice. She sounded like a  powerful angel and I was hooked.

From that day forward I was her biggest fans. A  voice like hers was so rare and so pure I thought no one was better. I would buy her singles and saying that is telling my age because you can’t physically buy singles anymore 😂

I would buy her Cd’s. I bought the Set it Off soundtrack because the song Missing You featured her. I simply just loved her music.  Her voice is magic.  Music to my ears. Good for my soul.

Finally after being one of her biggest fans for years; I saw her in concert at The House of Blues. Hands down one of the best concerts of my life! It was a dream come true.  She sounded even better live. My sister and I couldn’t have asked for better.

Then something happened, I met her in person at a restaurant where I used to work 2 years later . I was a hostess and she came in with her husband.  My job was to greet people, be polite, occasionally engage in conversation, and then seat the guest.  

When she walked in, I noticed her immediately and my face lit up. My favorite singer was right in front of me. I couldn’t stop smiling. I was so happy but her face not so much.  I said hello.  I got a very clipped hello in return.  I said how are you? It was like I was pulling teeth.  She didn’t want to talk to me and finally she said with the look of a scowl on her face,  I’m good.  That was the end of my encounter with her.  I sat them and walked away in defeat.

To say I was disappointed was an understatement. I thought maybe she was having a bad day but is that really an excuse? I haven’t looked at her the same since then.  A year later she had a concert again at the House of Blues; I didn’t go. 

I thought maybe I was overreacting but as the quote goes,  “When someone shows you who they are,  believe them!” I couldn’t get that thought out of my head. I know that wasn’t the worse thing ever but I’ve met celebrities before and I can say none of them have done that. 

Well like they say,  don’t meet your heroes! She wasn’t my hero but my favorite singer. At the end of the day it was disappointing. 
Have you guys met one of your heroes/favorite singer/etc? How did it go? Should I give her another chance and go to her concerts again?

Thank you for reading my blog! I hope you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful blessed day! Follow me on Instagram @lashaunlee36 Lashaunlee36
