Young Artist Meets Stevie Nicks
y Paola Giangiacomo

A week after postponing a concert on Montage Mountain, rock group Fleetwood Mac finally played at the Ford Pavilion Thursday night.

Before the show, Ashley McFaul, 15, of LaPorte met Stevie Nicks and presented her with a portrait she had sketched of the singer. Ashley suffers from a rare condition called arthrogryposis. Because of the condition, Ashley has lost the use of her arms. She used her feet to draw the sketch of her favorite singer. "She's such an inspiration to me," said Ashley. "She's just so awesome. Her music changed my whole outlook on life; totally different now."

When Newswatch 16 heard about Ashley's drawing, we contacted the publicist for Stevie Nicks. Warner Brothers Records arranged for Ashley to meet the singer just before the concert.

"It was amazing!" said Ashley. "Stevie is the sweetest person you could ever meet. Everything everyone thinks about her, how nice she is, is all true. She is amazing."

Ashley said Nicks encouraged her to keep drawing. The girl from Sullivan County plans to follow that advice.

Thanks to MacMan for posting this to the Ledge.
