Today was a great day! Our first call time wasn’t till after 10, which gave us all some much needed rest. From there we went to downtown Chicago for some free time. I went to get some Chicago style pizza, and I know many of the guys did the same. After our free time we did some impromptu street corner singing, which is always a blast! We even sang to a bride as she was leaving for her wedding, which is something I will always remember. From there we went to our second show of the tour in Northbrook. The show was really important to a lot of the guys who had family and friends coming, so we wanted to put on a great show for them. The show ended up going really well, too. Now it is back to our homestays to rest up for one last day of touring!
