Last night, I took my daughter to her first concert. We saw Selena Gomez at the Air Canada Centre.
It was a beautiful Saturday in Toronto, so we went to Buskerfest on Yonge first before grabbing dinner and heading to the show for the opening act.
The first performer was Christina Grimmie. She played for about 30-minute and was pretty good. It turns out I just enjoy live music, whether I'm a fan of the artist or not. I was sincerely digging it, especially the title track of her new album, "With Love", which you can hear here.
Then, the young female screaming began. Emblem3 hit the stage and it sounded like the Beatles had landed at JFK. A sign of the times, Christine Grimmie was discovered on YouTube and Emblem3 were discovered on The X Factor. The 20,000 girls in the crowd really, really, really like Emblem3 and weren't afraid to show it.
Then, right on schedule, it was time for Selena Gomez to play for her adoring faithful. She's not my cup of tea, but I got right into it. When in Rome...
Michelle had a blast, standing proud and belting out every song with Selena. Highlights included "Who Says", "Love You Like a Love Song" and her encore crowd favourite, "Come & Get It".
It was amazing fun and I'm so glad I got to be Michelle's date for her very first concert.
