Heartwarming / Lindsey Stirling

  • A lot of Lindsey's songs are all about overcoming negativity and self-doubt and allowing yourself to be free.
  • Song of The Caged Bird's video may have some Fridge Horror at the end, but the shot of Lindsey finding the violin and starting to play can cause even the hardest of people to go "D'aww."
  • She's really humbling in this video.
  • The ballerina breaking out of the snow globe and entering the light in the Shatter Me video.
  • "Beautiful Times", her collab with Owl City.
  • Take Flight was dedicated to a fan of hers, a boy who attempted suicide because he was bullied.
  • The "Pure Imagination" video, featuring The Muppets, was praised by Muppet fans as being the most Muppet Show thing they've done in a long time.
  • Upon Dragon Age: Inquisition earning Game of the Year, Stirling is brought out to show how video game covers are done.
  • The music video for We Are Giants, released in September 2015, at one point prominently features the name Iwata.
  • How the Stirling family celebrated Christmas from the lyric pamphlet of Warmer in the Winter:
    When I was a child, we didn't have very much to spare in the Stirling home and money was always tight. However, every year my parents would find a family that was less fortunate than ours and we would give them the 12 days of Christmas.

    Oh it was so fun! The 12 days leading up to Christmas, each night we would sneakily doorbell ditch trinkets, goodies, toys and necessities to the family we'd chosen. Dad would write a short poem to go along with whatever we'd prepared to leave.

    We kids would all take turns and it was so exciting when it was my night to help Dad leave the presents at the door. He would let me set the goodies on the doorstep and then give me a head start to run to our old Toyota van where the rest of the family was anxiously watching and waiting. Then he'd ring the doorbell and dash after me. We would grin from ear to ear as we'd watch the family come to the door and look around in confusion. Then their puzzlement would turn into excitement over what we'd left and we were filled with the spirit of Christmas.

    Each night the children of the family would get faster and faster at coming to the door in attempts to catch us. So we'd leave our gifts at side doors and use other creative delivery tactics. Who knew service would be so fun and so sneaky. I don't think we ever got caught.

    My parents did their best to teach us rambunctious children that Christmas was about giving; and that each act of service was a gift to Christ.
