Wynonna’s Stage Lift Knocks Her To Her Knees; She Sings While Down
Wynonna Judd has a dramatic entrance when she enters the stage on The Judds Final Tour. She normally enters in the audience from a stage lift that brings her up to sing The Judds’ classic “Had A Dream” (an Elvis Presley cover from the Judds’ 1983 debut album). When she came up on Friday night (10/7) at a show in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the lift malfunctioned, and Wynonna was knocked to her knees, where she stayed to sing the show’s first song in its entirety.
In a video clip posted by a fan, you can see a member of the crew helping Wynonna and handing her the mic on her knees, where she stays to sing.
After the show, Wynonna posted a bunch of images, including a photo of the incident where she sings on the floor and some pictures of the night’s guest Ashley McBryde. Wy captioned the post:
A few thangs!!!!
1. I love Sioux Falls.
2. I love Judd’s music and fellowship.
3. I do not trust technology… (I did NOT fall!!!!! We had a malfunction with the lift)
4. Singing on your knees ain’t always a bad thing. But, during the show, not my favorite & very humbling!
5. I will never forget Sioux Falls. Thank you all for being there for me. @ashleymcbryde and @martinamcbride, thank you for having my back!
Several fans responded to the Facebook post, including one who wrote, “I’m sure you’d sound amazing singing upside down!! I don’t trust technology and can’t sing standing.” Another fan wrote, “As humbling as it may have felt, only a strong woman could have just gone on about business and be picture perfect as always! You are the jewel in your mother’s crown.” One more fan commented, “It was an amazing night and one I’ll never forget! Made it from Alaska just in time! I didn’t think you fell; I knew there was a malfunction but couldn’t believe how you could just never miss a beat in that song!”
