My name is Christina, and I am from Gosport, IN. I enjoy playing volleyball and hanging out with friends and family! I’ve been a Martina McBride fan for four years! My favorite Martina song is ‘Independence Day’. The first time I saw Martina in concert was on my 16th birthday, and I had the pleasure of meeting her!

June Fan of the Month

My name is Michael Rampa, and I am from Pittsburgh, PA. When I first heard Martina sing, she made me believe in angels. I led a pretty conventional life until I suffered a stroke when I was 33. My priorities have changed and the joy I now find in life is giving back. I am active in disabled sports organizations and various support groups. Martina’s music and charitable efforts have been truly inspirational in my recovery and have gone far beyond me to the lives I may have touched on my journey.

I don’t have a favorite single concert moment, but with every two hour chunk of time I spend at her shows, she takes me and a few thousand others to a better place. I did meet her once and you can feel her compassion and authenticity. She is quite simply, a beautiful person both inside and out and the finest female vocalist ever.

Thank you Martina!

DSC00740My name is Debbie and I am married with one son, daughter in law and 3 grandchildren. We live in Jerseyville, Illinois where I work as an ophthalmic technician for a multi-doctor practice. I have been a Martina fan since 1998. All it took was one concert and I was hooked. She has the most fantastic voice! Since then, Dave, my husband has spoiled me and I have been to 59 concerts in 14 different states. We’ve been known to drive 5 hours to get to a concert and leave afterwards to drive home due to a prior commitment. I have been very fortunate to meet Martina several times. Probably most memorable was getting to go on “the road with Martina” where I went on a tour bus with her promoter for a 4 city 6 day tour in 2007. It gave me backstage and concert experiences that I will never forget. Martina isn’t only one of the nicest persons but she surrounds herself with great people also. My friends tease me because I have a “Martina” room where I keep a lot of my memorabilia. From the Ashes has always been a favorite song but there is nothing like hearing Where Would You Be live in concert. It’s hard to pick a very favorite because any Martina song is great to me!!

Interlochen June 2012 My name is Nonie and I live in Beal City, Michigan. I work for Michigan State University Extension.

I love going to concerts, traveling, golfing, playing keno, and the Chicago Bears!

I became a Martina fan about 17 years ago. The first time I saw her in concert was in 2000 (I had tickets to a show in 1998 but had a school conflict) and I’m happy  to admit that I’ve been to “quite a few” shows since then. It’s too hard to pick a favorite show….they are all amazing! But I do have a favorite song that I love to hear  her perform live – Whatever You Say – Long Version!!

Thru my Martina adventures, I have met so many awesome and fun people that are now my friends. Some of the best times for me have been made by going to her shows all over the country with these peeps! And I have met Martina too! She rocks!!!
