We focus on the beauty of humans and the power in their stories…


Through telling their stories we hope to connect this world. To spread strength, love, and humanity...


To show a common thread of beautiful humans…


This week we go to Ferndale, Michigan with Heidi Wobrock to hear her incredible story...


I met Heidi as I do many people... on a gig. I remember how kind and accommodating she was the first time we met.

We have kept in contact over the years and worked together a few times since. I am always excited to get to hang out and roll through her venue.

She is a really kind human and a wonderful friend.


Let’s all be beautifully human…

Heidi Wodrock / Ferndale, Michigan

Tell me a story that shaped your life…

- As many of us do at the age of 17, I had to decide upon a college. This is actually such a wildly huge decision for someone of this age to make. I could barely decide what I wanted to wear to school that day or what color to keep my hair. I for once did not make the logical decision, and chose the school that spoke more to my heart than my head. Sometimes I think how wildly different my life would be if I had picked the conventional choice. I can't help but wonder what that reality might look like. I know I picked the happier choice. 

Tell me a story that almost ruined your life…

- My younger brother was driving home from work very early in the morning at the beginning of this year. The roads were slick, he lost control of his vehicle, and collided with a semi truck. He was injured and had to have surgery as a result, but most importantly he was alive. When I first heard the news, it didn't really register to me until much later that he could have easily died. I feel incredibly grateful that he is here today. He is one of my best friends and I truly could not imagine my life without him.

Tell me a story that enriched your life… - I would not have the job that I have today if a colleague hadn't taken a chance on me. I knew virtually nothing and he took me in under his wing and taught me the ropes. I will always be eternally grateful for him seeing something in me that even I couldn't see. Tell me a story that enriched another life… - This kind of goes with the above question... but because of the opportunity I was given, I try to make an effort to do the same for younger people that I know are passionate about the live music industry and need some help getting their foot in the door. I think so many people have abilities but aren't always given the chance to prove themselves. Tell me a story of crazy life…  - Every day that I work is really part of a crazy life. I meet so many people from so many different places and backgrounds, and everyone has their own story to tell. But at the end of the day, everyone is there for the same thing, and that is to put on a hell of a show. What would you want the world to know about you…  - I've been very introverted and shy my whole life, which I think comes off to a lot of people as me being aloof or stuck up. I've also been told on more than one occasion that I'm intimidating, which I think is funny because I'm a pretty tiny and unimposing person. I promise I'm actually super nice, you just have to get past the resting bitch face! What did / do you miss most during covid 19… - This probably won't come as a surprise, but I miss work the most. I haven't worked a show since the beginning of March, which is still difficult for me to wrap my head around. I miss the crazy hours, cracking jokes with the stagehands, the mad rush before doors, then the feeling of excitement right when the show starts. I even miss meet & greets, which is something I never thought I would say in this lifetime. I'd do anything to be back. What brings you the most joy / smile the most...  - My friends and family bring me the most joy in life. They are always there for me. I'm lucky to have such great folks in my life. If you were given a plane ticket to anywhere, where would you go… - Anywhere, you say? I would go to Australia. I've always wanted to explore the outback. 

What brought you to where you are at in life today… - The support I've received from others. I could not have achieved the things that I have without being helped and cheered on along the way. What is your most prized possession… - I hate to say that he is a possession, but since I technically do own him.... my golden retriever, Milo. Traveling is my life, and has also saved my life. It shows the beauty of other cultures. tell me a story of your favorite travel moment…  - I haven't done a whole lot of traveling, so I'm going to say that I haven't had my favorite moment just yet. Once I do I will be sure to update you! In another life, what are you doing…  - I'm somewhere warm, working with animals. 

What is your greatest accomplishment…  - As a kid I was a motivated perfectionist (still am), and I worked extremely hard in high school. I was awarded a full tuition scholarship to the college that I chose, which I will always be very proud of. It was also an enormous weight off my shoulders to not be burdened with immense debt right out of college. What is your biggest fear…  - Ending up alone in life. What is your biggest regret… - I stayed in a relationship where I did not feel valued or loved for far too long, simply because it was the easy thing to do. I regret that it took me so long to realize my own worth. It's something that I still struggle with, but I'm getting better at it day by day. I regret that I allowed myself to feel this way, but it has also taught me some important lessons. What do you do for work… and why… - It has been alluded to many times already, so here it is! I am a production manager at a music venue in metro Detroit. Growing up, concerts were the one place that I really felt like I belonged. I feel so lucky that I get to be at concerts all the time, AND get paid to do it. What was your first tattoo... - The Deathly Hallows symbol from Harry Potter, on the back of my neck. Super nerdy, but those books really did a lot for me growing up. 

If you had the ear of everyone in the world, what would you say to them... 

- The world is a scary place to be right now; between systemic racism, the pandemic, and a multitude of other things. There's a lot of hatred and anger coming from every direction and it's exhausting. I think if we all focused on celebrating our similarities instead of highlighting our differences, the world would be a happier place.
