Kia ora family, fans, friends and each and everyone that provides the positive NRG that is creating the undeniable journey ahead for us .... NRG Rising is the evidence of the power of faith hope and belief!
We sit here in the early evening and consider what we couldn’t really even perceive, we are off to USA, New Mexico, none of the band at this time even has a passport, a couple have been to Australia a few years ago, but passports are now expired... so with the invitation for NRG Rising to attend and perform in the prestigious Gathering of the Nations New Mexico in April 2012, the news is somewhat hard to imagine or even believe for us all yet… only 36 months ago the band was born.
We had a dream, we worked hard, massively focused and made many sacrifices and with the support of family, friends and you, our staunch supporters, we now have our first international gig. Thank you all, each and everyone one of you, all the positive energy and thoughts all really do count towards the way in which the future plays out in reality.
Well, I am sure we are all in for a huge culture shock of epic portions, and that our freshie, a little naive, and querky positive outlook on life, intense belief that our gift is a gift from the Creator, stand us in good stead for the upcoming few years, because we all know that this is just the beginning!!!!!!!!! Bring on the rollar coaster of life, we have our seat belts fastened, our hearts in the hands of the almighty, and we know we are following in the footsteps of the other inspirational Aotearoa Reggae greats who first attended the GON in 2006, Katchafire. Blessings always to our brothers and their beautiful, patient, stunning and all loving partners and wifes! Without you holding down the fort, looking after the homefires, they would not hve been able to do so well. You are amazing sistahs, Thank you all for the inspiration.
