We suggest finding a box of tissues before watching the above video.

A couple months ago, we set out to make a mother feel special to celebrate Mother’s Day.

We recruited the Über talented Denver Duncan and set to work building the mother of all Mom’s Day contests.

We asked VDub enthusiasts to send in what makes their madres special, and that’s how we found the maternal wonder known as Norene.

With the help of Norene’s kids, our crew set up in Lower Bricktown and completely surprised Norene with a song about her mother ways.

All the lyrics of the song directly relate to stories, memories and moments the family has shared together.

Denver’s soulful captured that and we can’t wait to see what happens when Father’s Day comes around.

Just kidding, but not really.

Change doesn’t happen by itself.

Lucky for Oklahoma City, we have Kristen Vails working her tail off. She’s spent the better part of four years promoting and revitalizing the district.

Vails is the executive director of the Plaza District. If you haven’t noticed, the Spy Van makes a special trip to every Live on the Plaza event to not only have fun but also to film interviews with Okie artists.

You can thank Vails for setting up these interviews.

For some reason, we’ve waited this long to chat with Vails about her artwork. A lot of her work is based on Vails’ favorite hoofed animal.

Take a minute to learn about an Okie that’s all about artwork.

When something’s simple, it’s usually because someone worked hard to make it that way.

That’s precisely why we think OK Sweetheart deserves attention.

Erin Austin isn’t living in Tulsa anymore, but she still plays in Oklahoma under the moniker OK Sweetheart during her active tour schedule and makes sweet ’60s-inspired pop songs sound as easy as Sunday morning.

If you are in Norman this week and have the means then we highly suggest you visit OK Sweetheart and Brine Webb performing at The Opolis.

It can be a lot of work getting to a show, but you should know OK Sweetheart will make it easy on you.
