Best Of 2016: Melz On The MIC’s 10 Favorite Moments Of 2016
For the majority of us, 2016 has not been our year, but it was a great one for me! I've had so much fun this year running all around Central Texas and the great nation of Texas from rocking parties with Shani Scott to zip lining over Lake Travis to running in a 5K! I can't front, this year has been a wild ride and next year, I PROMISE its going to get wilder and bigger and BETTER! Let's take a look back at my favorite moments this year!
Let's start with The Insane Inflatable 5K! Considering that I'm out of shape for the most part, it was a TON of fun run/walking the course and I can't to do it again next year! Shoutout to Boss Lady of B106 and Jason for running with me!
My Texas Bucket List travels brought me to San Antonio several times this year including a stop at Sea World Aquatica, Sea World's amazing waterpark where we swam with stingrays and fed exotic birds! Lots of fun!
The annual SXSW festival is always a lot of fun and I got to hang out with some great artists and catch some up and coming acts in R&B but the highlight was meeting Erykah Badu who took my phone and captured this photo!
This one didn't happen in Texas but it was because of you amazing listeners here that I got to travel to Mississippi for The Southern Entertainment Awards where YOU nominated me for "Personality Of The Year" and while I didn't win, it was amazing and proud honor to be nominated!
One of the biggest highlights of the year was heading over to Lake Travis for zip-lining! It was incredible and you'll definitely love it if you aren't scared to try it!
I got a last minute invite with Shani Scott to check out Kanye West at his Saint Pablo Tour stop in Austin this summer and his show was amazing, even though I was hoping for one of Yeezy's infamous rants, the show was exciting and visually incredible.
The first ever Central Texas Southern Soul Zydeco was a HOT time (literally) but it was definitely a highlight of the year as we welcomed Bishop Bullwinkle and Big Pokey Bear to Killeen and despite the lack of air in the venue, we still PARTIED hard!
Getting a chance to see everybody in the CTX who keeps us locked in jamming on the job with us and delivering free lunch courtesy of Schlotzsky's with Free Lunch Friday was one of the best highlights of the year!
I truly enjoyed the opportunity to spend the day with the amazing men and women who have served our great nation on Veterans Day at VFW Post 9191! We had a great time!
The trips out of town, the celebrities I get to interview and meet, all of that is NOTHING to me without YOU! My favorite highlight of 2016 is YOU, meeting you, talking to you, interacting with YOU is why I do what I do and I'm truly appreciative of every kind word, hug and handshake that I get from YOU, our amazing listeners who make all of this possible!
