Lindsey Stirling has had quite a journey and now you can watch the highlights in this short compilation video posted to her YouTube channel.
Featuring music from LDS artist Mindy Gledhill, the video shows home videos of Lindsey growing up and follows her through her time on America’s Got Talent, her first shows, and now to her continued success. It comes as Lindsey promotes her new memoir, The Only Pirate at the Party. At the end of the video Lindsey shares a personal message to her followers.
“The reason I spent the last three years working on a book isn’t because I want you guys to know more about me, but it’s really because in reading it I hope that you can learn a little bit more about yourself…I really want you to know that you have the power to do everything that you want to do,” she said.
“Detailing every trial and triumph she has faced until now, Lindsey shares stories of her humble yet charmed childhood, humorous adolescence, life as a struggling musician, personal struggles with anorexia, and finally, success as a world-class entertainer. Lindsey’s magnetizing story—at once remarkable and universal—is a testimony that there is no singular recipe for success, and despite what people may say, sometimes it’s okay to be The Only Pirate at the Party.”
