We saw our Eagan home boy Nicholas David live his dream these past months on "The Voice". Our hearts soared and we were thrilled to see opportunity meet talent in the world's stage. Those of us fortunate to remember Nick from his Encore performance in high school remember well that we knew he was destined to go far. It's been a long journey for Nicholas from way back then to last night's season finale. Making it to the final three was spectacular and although we wanted him to be first with all of our hearts, we already knew he had achieved greatness, the recognition he deserved after the long road leading there.
When one has the courage and confidence to truly be who they are, express it, live it daily and connect with inner source it is a moving & beautiful thing. Nicholas has inspired countless others to go forward without a need to conform to the norm. Being and expressing yourself, living in love and gratitude is a mantra not modeled fully or often in our superficial society. It's what the world needs now, wouldn't you say? So the value of communicating that message to the masses is as powerful as the profound talent that powers it forward. We know that Nicholas has gained a whole new audience and will continue to live his dreams, his gift, his music. Years ago, another Minnesota musical talent touched the world and became immortal. His name was Bob Dylan........... We love you Nicholas!
