Where do I even begin?!?! 😍
Meeting Common was definitely a treat! He was patient and kind to those who had been waiting for this moment. I thought I’d be a bit nervous, but surprisingly I was just as cool as he was LOL
As I was waiting, naturally I was making sure my hair was okay, sans a mirror around at that! And being natural especially…it takes on a mind of its own at times and I was NOT having it tonight! LOL One of Common’s ‘people’ saw me and he told me my hair was beautiful. Well now….okay! I guess I’m ready!
When I approached Common, he first said hello, as he greeted me with a warm hug. I replied “Heyyy Lonnie”. Well, that surprised him! He smiled so big and replied “Hey, that’s what’s up” then gave me another hug…and I was NOT mad about it. I told him how much I enjoyed the show and that I was looking forward to reading his memoir “Let Love Have The Last Word” which was a gift from him by the way! Common thanked me for coming out and he was glad I enjoyed his performance. After that was the photo op, another hug, and the farewell.
Common’s whole vibe reflects the genuine, deep, cool, positive soul that you hear in his work! He was very approachable which can ease anyone’s anxiousness.
Would I like to meet him again? Heck yeah! 😁😍
