Ingrid Michaelson Ticket Contest

There Stands the Glass is pleased to present an Ingrid Michaelson ticket giveaway contest.

The winner will receive two tickets to Michaelson's July 1 all-ages concert at the Beaumont Club in Kansas City. The singer-songwriter launched her first major headlining tour last week.

Michaelson's jaw-dropping talent and adorable disposition charmed the audience at the sold-out Record Bar in April when she toured as part of the Hotel Cafe ensemble. (Original image above.)

Although Michaelson is rightfully acclaimed for hits like "The Way I Am", her unlikely cover versions of songs including Radiohead's "Creep" and Rihanna's "Umbrella" are part of what makes her one of today's best live performers.

The winner will be the person who names the most intriguing new song for Michaelson to cover. For instance, I'd love to see Michaelson interpret Lil Wayne's "Lollipop." And who knows?- maybe Michaelson will actually follow through on your idea.

You may leave your suggestion and email address in the comment section of this post. You may also email your entry to happyinbag(at)gmail(dot)com. I'll contact the winner the afternoon of Friday, June 27.

(The tickets are provided by Michaelson's publicist.)

at the conclusion of the song, "the way i am" as the crowd is chanting along "you take me the way i am" she diverts from the crowd and sings "and i'm the king of wishful thinking". from there she does nearly the entire song and brings the house down. it would be huge. huge, i say, like the intro of "where the streets have no name" huge.

King of Wishful Thinking - Go West

It's gotta be "A Man Needs a Maid". Just gotta be.

Off-blog entries included the Monkees' "Daydream Believer," Tom Petty's "Free Falling" and Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy." The latter is a good- if annoying- idea.

Dan, I'd like to see you say that to Ingrid's face!

The winner, even though I can't stand his suggestion, is Concert Chris. He wins for his constructive creativity.

Congrats, Chris! Email me with your contact info so we can get you covered. See you at the show.
