WINNING    ESSAY

THE WINNER OF 'SEVENS' IS SARAH MURPHY

THE FIRST TIME I EVER HEARD OF GARTH BROOKS WAS HIS FIRST TELEVISED CONCERT. I CAN'T REMEMBER WHY I RECORDED IT, BUT I'M GLAD I DID. I REMEMBER WATCHING HIM AND THINKING "THIS GUY IS AWESOME." HE HAS SO MUCH ENERGY ON THE STAGE. AFTER THAT I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT ONE OF HIS CD'S AND I WAS HOOKED FOR LIFE. I REMEMBER ONE THING HE SAID ON THAT SHOW, HE WAS SITTING IN THE UPPER LEVEL OF THE STADIUM, AND I CAN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID BUT IT WAS SOMETHING LIKE BEFORE EVERY SHOW HE GOES AND FINDS THE WORST SEAT AND SITS UP THERE AND THINKS OF HOW HE CAN MAKE THAT ONE PERSON FEEL SPECIAL AND REACH THEM. I HAVE RECENTLY GOT TO GO TO ONE OF HIS SHOWS AND HE LIVES UP TO WHAT HE SAID. HE MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR THE ONLY ONE THERE. AND NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE SITTING HIS MUSIC TOUCHES YOU. WHENEVER I'M FEELING LONELY AND SAD I LISTEN TO HIS MUSIC AND IT MAKES ME FEEL BETTER. HIS SONGS HAVE REALLY MOTIVATED ME TO DO WHAT I GOTTA DO BECAUSE IF I DON'T THEN HOW AM I EVER GONNA KNOW. I AM A SHY PERSON AND HIS MUSIC HAS HELPED ME TO COME OUT OF MY SHELL A LITTLE MORE. SONGS LIKE STANDING OUTSIDE THE FIRE AND THE RIVER HAVE HELPED ME TO REALIZE THAT YOU HAVE TO TAKE CHANCES IF YOU WANT TO GET VERY FAR IN LIFE. HIS MUSIC IS THE BEST BECAUSE NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHERE YOU COME FROM YOU CAN RELATE TO AT LEAST ONE OF HIS SONGS IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. ~~ SARAH MURPHY ~~
