He is planning to bring a mini version of the mural to the Lady Gaga concert at Amalie Arena on Friday night in hopes she will really notice him. It’s worked for Parker before! He brought a painting of songstress Patty LaBelle and she brought him on stage at one of her concerts!
He would even settle for the multi-Grammy award winner to just take a selfie at the mural. But Parker says even if that doesn’t happen, this is so much more than the art, it’s about adding something beautiful to the community.
“It’s just humbling,” said Parker. “It’s like thank you, thank you, thank you, I will never stop saying thank you to anybody.”
