All I can say is, Crystal Torres called it. In December of 2012 I met her in her hotel room before my very first rehearsal with Beyonce and the rest of the band. We were catching up and she looked at me and said, “Adison, this is going to be a really good year for you. I’m excited for you”. She called it. This year has been UNBELIEVABLE! For all I knew, I’d still be at Juilliard right now finishing my master’s degree.. But instead.. I’ve traveled the world many times over playing the saxophone with the biggest pop star in the world.. Beyonce and the Mrs Carter Show..
I brought in the New Year with her last year at the Wynn in Las Vegas, then we played the Super Bowl..
I’ve traveled to so many places, that I’ve never even dreamt of going to..
I met with friends old and new around the world, from Australia to Warsaw, Poland..
I’ve played for 50k people or more for 110 nights..
I’ve become part of a whole entire new family..
I started Adi’s Jazz Kitchen!
And filmed my cooking show with some of my favorite people/ musicians..
Oh and also! I am able to start my discography with this one..
Thank you to everyone who has supported and pushed me through one of the craziest years of my life. I am so grateful for your love.
I am so thankful and blessed. SO blessed.
I look forward to even more in 2014! I wish you and yours a happy and healthy New Year!
Here I am again, starting another leg (the 5th one to be exact) of the Mrs Carter Show World Tour with Beyonce. It really snuck up on me this time.. I was having such a good time with my family and my sweetheart over Thanksgiving I barely noticed I had to leave the day after. We started off in Vancouver (which is beautiful I hear.. No time to explore) then we flew into San Jose today. My spirits were lifted when I saw a Christmas fair outside of our hotel!! So we went, we ate, we stole Santa’s sleigh, and we decked the halls and it was a blast!
See you tomorrow night San Jose!
