Bettina started the day with an interview on KAFA, the Air Force radio station, chatting with the DJs about how excited she was to be performing at her dad’s alma mater. The DJ revealed there was a rumor spreading across campus that she would be attending the prestigious Ring Dance with a cadet later in the week. Bettina quickly confirmed that the rumor was true, and she was looking forward to the dance.
Next was a photo shoot across campus for the alumni magazine. Thanks to Alfredo Sandoval, Bettina had a custom-made football jersey with her name across the back for the shoot and concert. Her attempt to walk across campus in it was happily interrupted several times by autograph requests, and she took the opportunity to meet and talk to as many people as possible.
After taking the stage, Bettina looked out to the 5,000 cadets and stated, “My Dad raised me to have a great respect for the military and specifically for this institution. It’s an honor to attend here, an honor to graduate from here, and an honor for me to perform here for you tonight.” Then the fun began! One lucky cadet won the chance to come up onstage and have Bettina sing “She Is” to him – she kissed him on the cheek and the crowd went wild!
Bettina signed autographs and took pictures with the cadets for almost three hours afterward, getting to know where they were from, what they are studying, and thanking them for their service. Later, Smashmouth closed out the night on a high note.
