On Saturday, June 20th 2009, Tori MacArthur and Jonah Mayes hit the stage. They performed 4 songs together and then everyone at the party was treated to an amazing surprise. Jonah left the stage and it was just Tori and her guitar. She launched into the first of her songs a little shaky but managed to hit her stride by the second. She finished her set with The Best Day by Taylor Swift and then Jonah joined her onstage for yet another surprise. They performed Tori's first original titled Maybe You Love Me Too. I have to admit it brought a little tear to my eye.
Party in Paradise was a success because of the many wonderful people that helped me pull it off and I'd like to take the time to thank everyone involved:
