Meeting For King & Country
I watched For King and Country's music video, "The Proof of Your Love" hundreds of times. That inspired me to write a book, "Surviving the Apocalypse in Steinbach, MB". This weekend I went to the For King and Country concert so I could give them a copy of the novel I dedicated to them. Watch to see what happened :D
