The stage is on fire, as Jackson Maine belts one score after another. The audience is cheering non-stop, gyrating to the glorious moments.
The atmosphere is phenomenally charged.
Ally is nervous as hell. It’s her first performance ever, to a packed audience of over ten-thousand. Never in her wildest dreams had she thought a chance meeting with Jackson would land her centerstage. Real time.
It’s Ally’s turn to go now.
She and Jackson step up the stage with a duet. But it’s Ally who spins “Shallow” into a power ballad.
The crowd breaks into a frenzy. Thunderous applause follow.
A star is born.
This piece is draws a page from one of my favourite movies, A Star is Born, played by the very talented Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. I’m a die hard fan of their performances and the songs, (sung by them) in this incredible film. Do watch it, if you still haven’t.
