Andreah meets the band Sleeping With Sirens.

“ It was awesome to see them live, I never knew I could have that much fun. ”

- Andreah

Ever since Andreah started listening to the band Sleeping With Sirens when she was 12, she has wanted to see them live in concert. When it came to tell her wish granters what her one true wish would be, Andreah knew it had to be something with Sleeping With Sirens.

In addition to being able to see the band live, Andreah also received a backstage pass and was able to meet her favorite band in person. "I was so excited that I got to meet the band, I didn't think I was going to be able to, so it was super awesome when I got to meet them and hangout with them back stage,” she said.

Andreah’s adventure started at the Southwest Airline ticket counter at Sky Harbor Airport. As a first time flier, Andreah had some initial nerves that the flight attendants and pilots soon calmed. Once on the plane, she started to enjoy herself and fell in love with being in the air. She landed in Portland, Oregon after a short three hours flight.

When she arrived, her and her family were taken to their luxurious accommodations at Hotel Monaco. Everyone went to sleep excited for the concert the next day. When Sunday finally arrived, Andreah waited patiently all day in anticipation of meeting the boys of Sleeping with Sirens.

After being escorted to Roseland Theater where the concert was being held, the real fun began. During the concert, the lead singer and Andreah’s favorite band member, Kellin Quinn, gave her a shout out. Quinn even said he loved her in his shout out, making Andreah’s night even more special. “It was awesome to see them live, I never knew I could have that much fun,” said Andreah.

After the concert, Andreah was escorted backstage for her wish to be officially granted. When she first saw the band she exclaimed, “oh my gosh, it’s Kellin Quinn!” The boys spent quite some time with her taking selfie photographs, talking and eating. Andreah’s trip was more than she could have dreamed of and an unforgettable experience for her and her family.
