CMB


I was watching American Idol tonight and a guy on there reminded me of someone I once met. It brought back a HILARIOUS memory and I thought it would be perfect to share on my blog. This is totally TRUE. Okay do you remember the band Color me badd? Well, they were awesome. Anyway my Dad used to work at a ski resort in Park city where they would have concerts all the time, and lucky for me my favorite band, Color me badd just happened to be coming to town. So of course my dad being the sweetest and smartest man in town, he got us tickets. I think it was the day before the show Carli and I decided to make a poster for Kevin (Yes the black one) and on that poster I put my name, phone number and address. Can you even believe my parents let me take this? I can remember what I wore to the concert, jeans and a dark green button up shirt with ducks on it... hot. So when the show was all said and done we waited around for the band to leave, we waited and waited, and then I saw him. Carli pushed me into the HUGE body guard and he said "Stay back" but Kevin said "No let her through" Then he put his arm around me, took the poster and kissed me on the forehead! NO JOKE! I totally know Color me badd! Admit it, you're jealous. Thats not all. About 2 weeks later HE CALLED ME! It was a Sunday morning, we were getting ready for church and my dad answered. He said "Is Chelsey there?" in a very low voice, my dad said "Who is this?" thinking it's some pervert and hung up on him! He called back and immediately said "this is Kevin from Color me badd" my Dad came running in and gave me the phone, I was so nervous I could barely talk. He said he wanted to thank me for the poster and that he was going to send me some autographs in the mail. That was one good day. Nothing ever came in the mail, I'm still waiting.
We also went to a Nelson concert, remember the twins who wore spandex? No such luck meeting them.

I REMEMBER THAT STORY!!! And I remember thinking how lucky you were! My mom didn't let me do ANYTHING like that and I was just in awe when you told me about it! If you want to hear a very funny story involving me and Bobby Brown at the SLC airport, give me a call or email me and I'll tell you all about it :)

I started laughing when i saw this picture before even reading the story! I can remember this concert like it was yesterday. I also remember going to see Nelson. The Color Me Badd guys were so hot back in the day. And what were you thinking wearing a shirt with ducks on it. We should of at least cut the shirt above your belly button to look like you were in style!

That is so rad!!! I can't believe it. I totally remember them and their song" I adore mi amore" One of CMB was on a reality show on MTV about five different guys fro five different boy bands and the Latin was one of them and he gained about 100 pounds.

No WONDER you liked them so much, even in HS!!! Ok-Nelson, that takes me back--my older siblings LOVED them. That story is too funny, that is so something that would only happen to you!

Chelsey i will forever be jealous knowing that you are CMB's favorite fan! I bet Kevin still has that poster and is just too scared to call again seeing how he never sent the autographs!! Don't give up hope! LOL

Nelson and Color Me Badd was the music of my childhood. We had a "family meeting" when I was 7 to discuss why I had a cd with the song "I Wanna Sex You Up"
