Sunday Video Love: Crystallize + Elements

Sunday, October 23, 2016
These are the videos I took of Lindsey Stirling performing "Crystallize" and "Elements," respectively, on her Brave Enough tour at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts last Tuesday.

I have been following Lindsey Stirling for over four years now, but it was my first time seeing her live and it was truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Never mind that she's really the only person in the world who has become famous for being a dancing violinist. Never mind that she's incredibly talented, gracious, and humble. You really need to see her live to truly appreciate just how passionate and dedicated she is to her art, and to realize just how hard it is to do what she does. As someone who had played violin for a decade, I can't imagine how much work it takes to play like that and dance like that simultaneously. It's truly awe-inspiring.

She had competed on America's Got Talent in 2010, and after her quarter-final performance, judge Piers Morgan said to her, "You're not good enough, I don't think, to get away with flying through the air and trying to play the violin at the same time." Sharon Osbourne added, "What you're doing is not enough to fill a theatre in Vegas." But after multiple sold-out tours at huge venues, having all three of her albums chart on the Billboard 200, being nominated for two Billboard Music Awards (and winning one), being named in Forbes' 30 Under 30 in Music last year, and gaining over 8.5 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, I think we can all tell Morgan and Osbourne to go fuck themselves.
