ERIC HARPER

I was only 7 when it happened…

I remember I was in the kitchen doing the dishes when some song came on the radio. Don’t ask me which tune it was because I don’t remember. But what I DO remember was the feeling that song gave me. I immediately stopped what I was doing, quickly ran into the living room and just stared at the stereo. My sister called me back to finish the dishes, but I couldn’t move. I was transfixed, mesmerized. I literally couldn’t take my eyes off the stereo. I was so moved by emotion that all I remember thinking was “I want to make people feel like that!”

And so my story begins…
