Emily and Jason Perform Private Concert to Kick-Off 2009 Tour

Hey ya'll! So Jason and I are kicking off our 2009 Tour in my home state of Utah...with a little press tour and private concert at the Hoopers in Bountiful on June 19. Ten percent of our merch sales will be donated to their nonprofit, Think Outside Children's Charity. I really can't think of a better way to begin, than where it all began!
The Gary and Bonnie Hooper Family
Gary and Bonnie Hooper were my backdoor neighbors when I lived in Centerville and recorded my first album in Nashville with Mark Stepheson and Kevin Carmony. They sat-in on my basement rehearsals for the show with Martina McBride. Just after I started recording in Los Angeles with John Jones, I remember writing the song Let's Pretend late one night...Gary and Bonnie came over and listened in my front room in the dark and gave me honest feedback! Jason, Jayson and I performed at many rockin' Christmas Parties at the Hoopers. After I moved to Los Angeles, Gary, Bonnie and their son Trevor attended a special show with my MP3.com touring band (Jason Brock, Geoff Hartman and Mike Nieland) for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Long Beach. Annie was there! The Hoopers and my entire family were at the third show of the 50-city Club.MP3.com Tour at the House of Blues in Vegas - what a crazy party! One month later after Annie died, the Hoopers were an integral part of a special all ages show we did at the legendary Zephyr Club. At the 50th show in San Francisco two weeks later, Bonnie was there with her energetic love and support that I will never forget. And after the tour was finished, Trevor spent a weekend with me in Los Angeles, taking all the beautiful photographs for my Tribute album, Folded Wings. I am amazed at the time that has passed and all the life we've experienced since those early days. The Hoopers hold a most revered place in my heart and always will.
