Matt Maher!02.21.2012I was gone from 5-12 last night with some awesome people. I was gone from 5-12 last night with some awesome people. Campus ministry sponsored a trip to a Matt Maher concert in Cincinnati. Matt Maher is a Christian singer/songwriter who my friends and I like quite a bit. We listen to his music at our rosary group fairly often. We piled into 3 big UD vans at 5:00 last night and headed down to the Underground, which was the place it was at. It was a small venue, which made it cooler since it allowed us to be more intimate with the people on stage.
There were 3 opening bands before Matt that were actually pretty good. They were all very appreciative for us coming out and listening. Then Matt Maher came on - he was amazing. I've seen him once before but he didn't play for as long. But last night he played for about an hour and a half. He was so humble and sincere and just overall incredible. My friends and I had a blast. We sang to nearly every song, and by the time it was over, my throat was sore and voice nearly shot. But it was worth it.
We got back to campus at midnight, and by that time I was exhausted. I pretty much went straight to bed after unwinding for a little bit, and slept in until 10. (I so wish I could sleep til 10 every day. But alas...) Anyway, last night was definitely a night to remember. I'm definitely going to have to get some of Matt Maher's CDs. And if you've never heard of him, you should give him a listen!!
