It’s about time I brought “New Music Monday” back, isn’t it? For this one, I’m revisiting an artist I first told you about in 2015.
A new season has begun for the Durham Bulls. The reigning Triple-A National Champions returned to action at Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Thursday to a large crowd and a beautiful evening. The festivities got off to a great start when the team unveiled a banner commemorating its second National Championship. There were also plenty of new food vendors, activities to try out and fun to be had by all! The Bulls continue are in town until April 11. Check out DurhamBulls.com for all the info!
1. Amazing Message on Bullying
A few months ago, I saw a video in the "Trending" section on YouTube. It was of a kid, named Luke Chacko, singing "Let It Go" at an Idina Menzel concert. Let's get this straight, he didn't just sing it, he SANG it. There's a difference. Ellen DeGeneres invited Luke to be a guest on her show this week, where he reprised his remarkable "Let It Go" performance and delivered an incredible message on bullying. Take a look!
1. Hurricane Harvey
My heart breaks seeing my friends in Texas and along the Gulf Coast dealing with the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Particularly in Houston. The images I've seen of water up to rooftops and highways looking like oceans has been hard to deal with. However, with bad always comes good. The outpouring of love and support for the victims has been incredible. From a kid selling lemonade, to celebrities donating millions of dollars to the relief efforts, it has been incredible to see! I have given to the relief efforts and plan on giving more.

1. Grace Makes History at The Open
The Open Championship always tends to make history each year. This year was no different as Branden Grace shot the first ever 62 in a major. The 29-year-old South African was "slightly dumbfounded" after being told of his accomplishment by his caddie, according to Newsday. Grace's score beats a 63, shot by Johnny Miller in the final round of the 1973 U.S. Open. Congrats, Branden! What a huge accomplishment!
