BRUCE EMBRACES FANS, PARALYMPICS WRAP-UP, NEW BEATLES MOVIE ACCESSIBLE FOR THE BLIND    

 

Bruce Springsteen’s new book had two thousand very fortunate fans at his home town of Freehold, NJ waiting for their eight seconds to spend with The Boss at the Barnes and Noble meet and greet.  Jamie Sorcher (pictured), ESPN Gadget Girl and Journalist shares her experience of meeting her longtime idol.  The cauldron went dark in Rio but the fever lives on as Muffy Davis, 7 time Paralympic Medalist shares just how extraordinary the Rio games were.  Not only does Michelle Spitz have a phenomenal voice she is blazing trails in her endeavor in making films accessible and Ron Howard’s new documentary, “The Beatles 8 Days a Week, the Touring Years” is one of them so persons with visual impairments or blindness can also experience the Fab Four!

Emilie Gossiaux has and always will be a gifted artist despite being struck by a tractor trailer in 2010 that put her in a coma, and despite her doctors removing her intestines due to massive swelling, and despite Emilie’s mother being told that her daughter would not survive and then asked if she’d like to donate Emilie’s organs.  Emilie is a clearly a fighter and has much to accomplish personally and professionally in life to let some wimpy 80,000 lb eighteen wheeler derail her.  Hear Emilie’s story of love and determination through her miraculous comeback that allows her through the use of a highly innovate invention called the Brain Port Vision Device paint, sculpt and live her dream job of working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in her role as Museum Educator.  Emilie was also a recipient of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Award of Excellence in 2013 for her “Bird Sitting” piece.  She has sold her work and continues to create art every available moment in her NYC studio alongside her precious guide dog, London.

                       “Mark did a magnificent job of letting our students know about his struggles he’s overcome and his incredible determination not let our limitations (perceived or real) to get in the way of pursuing our dreams and being proud of who we are.  What made Mark’s presentation so spectacular was his ability to tell his story in a way that connected to all of our students. Mark’s message of self-acceptance and perseverance was extremely moving and important. The feedback from our teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators and staff members were as impressed by you as much as our students were.  You are a true inspiration to all of u!”

Bruce Springsteen’s shows are unparalleled for many reasons including performance time that he so graciously gives adoring fans.  I think his 4 plus hour shows are equally fulfilling for him as much as his fans as it’s evident just how elated he is performing in front of fellow New Jerseyians.  Hear clips from the 8/30/16 show that where he proved it ALL night long why no other musician can match his shows!
