Hi. My name is Bekah. I am 19 years old and I live in Massachusetts. I have been an Idina fan since December 3rd 2005, which was the second time I saw RENT in theaters. I don’t know what it was about her, but I just couldn’t stop thinking about Over the Moon and Take Me or Leave Me when I left the theater. I got home for Christmas break from school and my mom had bought the wicked soundtrack, and I became obsessed with that. I would only listen to that soundtrack for days on end. And of course it would not end there. I had to go out and buy her cds. In the middle of January, I was out to dinner for a friend’s birthday and to get out of the cold we walked through the mall. We stopped into Borders, and just for fun I decided to look for the cd. I had been looking all over the store. And in one aisle I was looking, and I hear my sister go “Hey Bek, you passed it” You have no idea how happy I was. I bought it right there on the spot. I had not heard any of the songs, but it was Idina, so that is all that mattered. So Still I Can’t Be Still was the cd I listened to for about 3 months. I love it! After I started listening to other stuff (which believe me was really hard) I go home in the beginning of April, and I noticed we got an Amazon.com box in the mail. No one in my family buys anything off of Amazon, but my mom said “Oh great that thing I ordered came in” so I didn’t think much of it. So we are all sitting around the living room just talking, while my sister walks in and hands me the Amazon.com box and said “happy birthday”. I screamed so loud when I opened the box and it was Idina’s cd Here. She bought it online just for me.
So now today, February 4, 2007 I have not been able to see Idina live. I really wanted to go to London to see her perform in Wicked, but being a broke college student, it was not able to fit into my budget. So I am hoping that when she finishes her new cd, she will tour and I will be able to see her live. But now I just have to deal with listening to RENT, Wicked, both of her cds and the few other songs I downloaded. But one day I will meet her, and that will become the best day of my life!
