Superdome Show

I will remember last night forever. The stage was set. 25,000 people were in the audience. It came time for us to do our effect that is so huge. The problem was that we didn't get a full rehearsal that day. Plus, we had not done this particular illusion in over a year. As I waited in position for Brock to begin, my stomach turning somersaults, I almost could not take the anxiety. Would magic even translate to a crowd so large? I took a few deep breaths, and as soon as Brock walked onto the stage, all of the nerves went away. The tunnel vision I have when Brock's performing kicked in.

When Brock finished the effect, I realized that we had done it! We created a storm inside the Superdome! I was still comprehending that we had actually pulled it off when I saw the video showing footage of Hurricane Katrina. The magnitude of what we did hit me. It was so cool to display how Jesus calmed the storm in the same place where the refugees stayed during a huge storm.

Then, Brock came out later to perform a couple of fun illusions. He had the crowd laughing so loudly (25,000 simultaneous laughter does that) and then standing on their feet in applause. A standing ovation!!! I didn't know if it would work with such a large crowd, but it more than worked. It was magical!

Geez, I wish I could have seen that. It probably would have been therapeutic. I was a Calif. tourist who couldn't get out of town and ended up stuck in the Superdome during Katrina. I'm sure I would have much preferred your storm. ;-)

Yes, I'm sure you would have, Paul! They had a few storm victims onstage that night as well.
