October Fan of the Month

October 1, 2014 — 1 Comment

My name is Ryan and I am a Martina McBride super fan!

I am an elementary school math specialist in New Jersey.  The majority of my work is with children who are struggling with mathematics and who have poor opinions of themselves as students.  I love to inspire them to take pride, not only in their work, but in themselves.  My ability to motivate people comes from Martina and her music!  She has been such an inspiration to me and her songs have enabled me to persevere as a person, a teacher and as my second great passion– a marathon runner.

My drive to the school where I teach takes over one hour each way, and Martina songs are always playing and making the drive better! With regard to my marathon running, (23 thus far) “Anyway” has been my number one motivational song for all races. The lyrics to this song are tattooed on my thigh as a reminder to run, sing, dream, and love anyway!

I have seen Martina in concert 22 times and have had the privilege of meeting her on four separate occasions.  She has shaped the course of my life in innumerable ways– and it is truly an honor to be Martina’s October Fan of the Month!

September Fan of the Month

September 22, 2014 — 1 Comment

My name is Madie, I just turned 17, and I am THRILLED to be Martina McBride’s September Fan of the Month! I live in Birmingham, AL and have an identical twin sister and little brother. I’m in the 11th grade and my favorite subject in school would have to be Choir…because I love to sing! Music (Martina’s specifically) is such an important part of my life; it inspires me to focus on the positive.  I was born prematurely at 25 weeks; I was given lots of oxygen, but that caused me to lose my sight. I’ve been blind my whole life, but it doesn’t stop me from chasing my dreams.

I’ve been a die-hard Martina fan for 3 years now, and have seen her 9 times in concert! I know all of her songs by heart and am so thrilled when I introduce her music to someone and they instantly become a fan! It’s so hard to pick a favorite tune, but I LOVE all of her power ballads, and the album cut from “Eleven”, “One Night”, is so much fun, too! :)   Martina’s voice is breathtaking, especially LIVE!

I’m a proud member of her volunteer group Team Martina, and I recently raised $2000 for an orphanage in Guatemala.  Because of this, I was given the incredible honor of not only meeting Martina, but singing with her!!! It was such an amazing, and emotional experience that I’ll always cherish – it made me realize dreams really do come true! I’m so proud to call myself a Martina fan…she makes all of us feel so special with her giving, caring personality – and her timeless songs will be treasured forever.
