|Me and Eddie|
I first met Eddie Sanders Jr. as he was at a Muskegon Lumberjacks game to sing the National Anthem. His towering presence and impeccable dressing at first was a little intimidating. Right away though, he told me he was heading to audition for one of those tv shows where they try to find the next big thing when it comes to singers, AGT.
He went out and belted out the Anthem with an amazing and towering voice to match his frame and I stood in awe.
As time went on... I learned more and more about Eddie and I have grown to not only highly respect him...I have grown to see so much of me in him it's almost uncanny. Eddie wants better for everyone. Eddie is a committed man to helping kids....strengthening communities and living life to the fullest. Eddie organized the 2000 Man March in Muskegon Heights this past Summer, it was an event that blew everyone away. It became clear to me... Eddie belongs on Positively Muskegon.
Well, there you have it! Elizabetheth's got quite a story and as she works her way toward the recital we're happy to cheer her on. Happy to have Eddie help tell her story too! What an amazing thing to have Eddie here. He's awesome and I will be happy to have his point of view on things when he can. Remember I asked earlier, "where do you find someone"? Simple truth is look for a guy who believes in something as much as you do...and be willing to help him succeed. It's called lifting people up... and it's awesome.
