Tim Halperin…picture of TRUE SUCCESS at Plano, Texas Feastival

by Dan Getz, Blogger Reporting from Plano, TX

Apparently how American Idol and the general American public view SUCCESS and how WE in TEXAS view SUCCESS are two different things.  Halperin’s modesty, “realness” and raw, undeniable talent was not only refreshing, but obvious to all who witnessed Halperin’s performance Saturday evening at the Plano Feastival in Plano, TX.

As the band was performing it’s final sound and equipment checks, Halperin was seen interacting with, and signing autographs for his young “tweener” fans…much like a big brother interacts with a younger sibling.  Testing the waters a bit (as an adult and technically media), I introduced myself as an Independent Blogger for Dance4One, and requested an autograph.  Tim not only graciously got up and signed a fold out map of the DART system (the only item I could readily put my hands on), but suggested doing an interview if I could stick around for a bit after the show, which I of course readily accepted.

Tim (lead vocalist and keyboards player) and the band played a number of songs I recognized from his new “Rise & Fall” album currently available on I-tunes in singles or as the full album (only $10).  My personal favorites were “I Wanna Fall in Love” and “New York” ( which Halperin executed PERFECTLY. 

After the “official” show was done, the “real show” began, and there was NO show to it, as Halperin and his fellow band members continued to carry and present themselves in a way that is not only rare in the music and art “arena”, but hard to describe in words.  I alluded to his character earlier when I mentioned he acted in a way that was “like a big brother”, particularly when talking to, and signing autographs for his mainly 5 year old to maybe 15/16 year female fans, even when it was obvious they were “fawning” over Tim and had been through the line multiple times. But it was more than that.  It was a humbleness, strong sense of right and wrong, and respect that usually comes from excellent parenting, a strong faith in Someone bigger than yourself, and an inner resolve to do and say the right things, no matter what. 

While Mr. Halperin may not have the fan base I think he one day will have, Tim had a stability and confidence about him that was secure in the fact that he WAS and IS successful no matter what the majority of people may, or may not say or think about him…NOW…or in the Future, and whether or not the charts reflect a Rise…or a Fall.  It was crystal clear to me as a representative of Dance4One, that Tim has, and is learning to CONNECT Art and Business THROUGH Faith, by BEING ArtDOING Business…and HAVING Faith.  Thank you Tim for demonstrating your core values, and talent, on and off stage.
