Here’s your feel good story for the day. 51 year old New Zealand newscaster and self-professed Sharon Van Etten fan John Campbell was on the air discussing his disappointment with a fellow reporter that he will be forced to miss a rare Sharon Van Etten gig in New Zealand due to a conflict.
Instead of lambasting this middle-age man’s musical love affair with Van Etten, the news team gave Campbell a gift he wasn’t expecting. Sharon Van Etten appeared remotely to say hi to Campbell and offer him a performance he’ll surely never forget.
Assessing the true power of music, Campbell exclaims “But music sometimes just keeps you afloat, doesn’t it?”
