The day started at 10am when Big Al at 102.5 put me on the VIP list for Zukku's MC afterparty.... He made the mistake of telling me that MC was already in Sacramento.
Big Al would not confirm or deny that MC would attend the party and he ignored my question about her hotel. But he did mention that the Sheraton or the Hyatt would be a nice place to stay. Sure enough Busta had his BIG BANG tour bus out front of the Hyatt and 3 non MC fans standing out front with pictures ready for signatures ( you could just tell they weren't LAMBS)
So for the next 5 1/2 hours, I got to take
a few pictures of JACK, talk to MC's assistant, talk with Busta bodyguard
(shout outs to TROY) and they all thought my sign was cute.
The best was hanging out with Rob, MC's other bodyguard, who actually took my sign in to MC to get signed. It was airbrushed and said
I Wish You Knew

My Saving Grace
Thank you Honey B Fly
There probably should have been a is after Mariah
but the butterflies were hella cool. She wrote THANK YOU ! (with a heart)
by my signs thank you, She also wrote I Love you with a smiley face and
signed it MC aka MIMI.
She also put a big heart around the Honey B Fly. Rob said she nevers signs things with Mimi and he said the sign made her HAPPY.
When Busta walked out to get on his bus he said he would only sign his cd. No one had one!! He wouldn't even sign the gold pkg laminate.
Never got to see MC come out of the Hotel, She went out the side but waited for 2 other SUV's to catch up to her, giving me enough time to jump in my car and convoy with them to the concert. Did I mention that we left the hotel at 9:30 pm, concert started at 8pm. Shout out to all that gave us a heads up that she always shows up late. I much preferred missing Busta and hanging out with Jack and Rob!!
MC's voice was amazing. I am truly in awe. The setlist seemed to be the same as previous ones. Her BODY is flawless, her SKIN is flawless, she did have a small mishap with her black shirt ( actually it was too small to call it a shirt) let's call it a bra, her assistant came out on the B stage to help her after the song.
Trey, Maryann ( who is the sweetest person, says she is shy but she had stories for us regarding LIVEAID and other things. Sherrie hung out too but Trey you the MAN. He wants everyone to go to his MYSPACE!!
Hung out with some brazil lambs, humbolt lambs and YAY AREA, about 15 us stayed til MC Left the building at 2am. Yes I'm writing this at 4am but who can sleep!!!! She waved to us and we broke out into WE BELONG TOGETHER..... Man we sounded terrible until we hit our stride when we got to Bobby Womack's on the Radio......... It was great cuz she had to be cracking up cuz there was not ONE real singer in the group but we sang LOUD and PROUD..... Apologizes to anyone that thought they could sing!!
We actually got Darryl to smile and i pointed
it out to him and he said, " I'm sorry I don't smile when i'm taking care
of business" but he gave us another smile after he said that. As long as
he keep our girl safe!!!!
This was the GREATEST ADVENTURE AND EVERY LAMB DESERVES TO GET ON THE RIDE....
