Our Matchbox20 Winners Story
This past weekend we sent a point listener to the Matchbox 20 show. Not only did our winner get to go to the show in Richmond.. but she also got to meet the band!!
She sent us a FB post thanking us:
Just wanted to say thank you for sending my brother and I to see Matchbox Twenty in Richmond! It was beyond amazing! Meeting them was wonderful, they are such cool guys! We even got a song dedicated to us! We can't begin to express how much we appreciated that trip, thanks again!
After reading this post I thanked her for listening and was in awe about how cool it was that they dedicated a song to them. Then Brooke shared with me the fact that SHE HAD AUDIO OF THE SHOUTOUT! Not only did she have the audio but Rob Thomas even tweeted her!
Brooke then sent me this message:
a little background- We grew up listening to mb20 with my Dad. Tragically, we lost our dad to suicide a few years ago. He was and is the most amazing man ever. Alot of cool things happened relating to mb20 after his death. randomly their songs would come on in really dark times, etc. We relate mb20 to him in every way. When we hear a mb20 song it is almost like our dad is here comforting us. When I found out I won, it was amazing! I cried so hard and I knew it was from him. All my friends know what mb20 means to me and when they found out I won, they were floored. The trip couldn't have gone to more deserving people. We really need it. I have 3 brothers, but I chose to take my little brother. We had the best time, I wrote them a letter about howmuch we appreciate them and that is why he dedicated such a sad song. It was a life changing moment, we are soo appreciative of 94.9 for the oppurtunity.
This is so sweet and it gives me chills thinking about it! We couldn't of picked a better winner! Im so glad that Brooke and her brother had such a great time at the show. And it gives me a mile wide smile knowing that this had such a positive effect on someone. Can you believe all of those incidences where MB20 songs would play and all of the situations where she felt her fathers presence!? incredible!!
