Los Angeles, CA, (The Hollywood Times) 4/12/2020–“ “My single ‘Me Again’ is about love and support healing a broken spirit and that’s what spirit week is. Trying to uplift people’s spirits in a lonely time – but from home,” explains Waldrup. “We got creative and remembered that most people have some old Halloween costumes and a favorite sports jersey. Why not lift spirits together online. I feel like I’m supposed to bring light to peoples lives through this dark time. That’s the purpose of #waldrupworldwidespiritweek.””
There are no red carpet premieres or award shows to get caught up in at the moment.
Live Concerts have been cancelled and public gatherings are null and void. This is not what we are used to as a society, to say the least. It seems as though all hope is lost… but wait, entertainment has simply taken another form, it has gone virtual.
You can still enjoy good music and entertainment by being apart of a virtual crowd. And one way to do that during these times of masks, rubber gloves, and not walking too close to others, if you do go outside of your home, is online entertainment.
A Singer with a Plan
Country singer/songwriter and entrepreneur, Karen Waldrup has come up with a way to entertain fans during this season of social distancing. She’s looking forward to fans getting in on the fun as well.
S-P-I-R-I-T. S-P-I-R-I-T, spirit!
What comes to mind when you hear, “High School/College spirit week”? For most of us, images of getting together with friends and having the time of our lives as we dressed up in school colors, participated in special spirit week activities, and having had l-o-a-d-s of fun is what flashes across our minds.
And without a doubt, FUN is the key word during spirit week.
