Although walking on stage to Justin Bieber's "As Long as You Love Me" was not my first choice, I was absolutely ecstatic to be part of the Journal Broadcast Group's 2013 Bridal Fair.
The Bridal Fair took place Jan. 6 at Centurylink Center. Everything wedding related was there to greet engaged couples, from Jone-Z Party buses to DJs and music for receptions. My duty, as well as the rest of the models from Image Modeling, who has been a part of the event since 2010, was to put on a fashion show to give all of the soon-to-be brides and grooms ideas for their special day.
If you go down the stairs to look at the train cars in the Durham Western Heritage Museum, you may hear the voices of Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, or even Lady Gaga. Don't be alarmed, just follow them past the train cars and on to the "Women Who Rock" exhibit.
At the entrance to the exhibit, you'll be greeted with a mural of vinyl records. Each one features interesting facts about women in music history from the early 20th century to today. It's a good tease for what lies ahead in the rest of the exhibit.
