Here is a little bit about our first Iconick, Dana!
Where are you from? Philadelphia, PA
What’s your favorite Nick Jonas song? "Santa Barbara" and "While the World is Spinning." I love the songs on the NJ&TA album because they’re stylistically different from contemporary music.
What's your favorite movie or TV role Nick has ever played? I recently read Brad Land's memoir "Goat" for class, and really enjoyed it. I think Nick did well portraying Brett Land with a little sensitivity. He's becoming a formidable actor.
Tell us why you love Nick Jonas: Nick is truly a modern day Renaissance man. There's always something different or intriguing about him. What I admire most about Nick is his honesty. He doesn't care what others think of him, and is always true to himself. He has this real visceral connection to his emotions, which I think allows him to pour himself into his songs and performances. He shows both vulnerability and strength in his personality. He's also kind of hilarious sometimes. I'm impressed at how many genres of music he's tried: poprock, country, folk, R&B, musical theatre. I also admire his thoughtfulness, his perseverance, and his love for his family, friends and fans.
If you could tell Nick one thing, what would it be? Hi Nick, I hope you're doing well. I just wanted to wish you all the best on your new music, roles and fashion projects. Don't ever worry about things not working out, because everything always works out for you. Promise me you'll remember to slow down sometimes, and take care of yourself. Thanks for making an effort to connect with your fans, it means a lot to us. Being a fan of yours has been a unique experience I will never forget. It's been great getting to know you through your music. And just maybe we'll write together in the future. I hope you become one of the greatest artists of our generation. - Dana
What is your favorite Nick Jonas related memory? I've never met Nick in person, but I do remember going to his concerts and softball games over the years. I remember one concert in Bethlehem, PA where we all got soaked! Perhaps my fondest "Nick Jonas related" memory is playing Jonas Brothers songs on my digital piano. I bought a Hal Leonard Jonas Brothers sheet music book, and would play their songs on the piano and viola. My favorite songs to play were Tonight and Inseparable.
Anything else you’d like us to know? Thank you so much for getting to know me. You all have been so kind to me. Thank you for your friendship and support.
