The last and first concert I went to was 7/17/10 at Summer Stage.  Raphael Saadiq performed. He was incredible and full of energy. I  really felt the passion that Raphael put into his performance.  Before this concert, I had not heard any of Raphael’s music. After the concert, I became a fan.

3) Why music?
Music because it has the power to bring people together, the power to change moods, and the power to make any moment better. When I listen to music, I can feel every emotion the artist put into their song.

5)  What does conrazon mean to you?
