Magic From The Heart
This week I ran across a Facebook page that really impressed me. The idea of the Page, as well as the character being shown by the individual is quite spectacular. I am sure, for those of you who attend BCSS, we have seen the gathering of bodies in front of the cafeteria at times. A fight? no never in a million years. Bake sale, nope not today. Kitoâs magic, I think so.
The young man is a genius when it comes to magic, I was lucky enough to be able to interview him and get a few answers to some frequently asked questions.
Kitoâs greatest inspiration is the well-known magician and mind freak, Chris Angel. He started attempting some basic magic tricks at the age of twelve and has not looked back ever since watching his idol on TV. He attends BCSS as a golfer and tennis player but magic is his passion and greatest hobby.
Kito described to me his practices by saying âIt's important to know how to practice my magic as well practicing anything in general. I would make sure I know the trick inside and out, and then I would practice in front of a mirror to make sure it looks right. After I would videotape the trick and watch the playback to put the final tweaks on it, then if I feel comfortable with it, I would start performing it for peopleâ.
The young Houdini has approximately 60 tricks up his big and baggy sleeves, and continues to learn new ones on a weekly basis. Although, he does not see magic to be a future career path, he will always have a great passion and love for the tricks.
Back to the whole Facebook Page extravaganza, Kito is attempting to do something quite remarkable. He is trying to raise money to help Sick Hospital through magic. The young entertainer has set a goal, in which he wants to raise $888, all of which will be donated to Sick Kids Hospital.
He is hoping to become an entertainer for birthday parties, and other events. He charges a very small rate of $20; as well donations would be greatly appreciated on top of the flat rate.
Here is a little something he said to me in our interview: âWhenever I perform magic tricks to people, I always got nice reactions and comments and they were cheerful afterwards, but then I thought of the kids who are currently fighting life-threatening diseases and never had a chance to be cheerful for a long time in their life. So, I want to help them by making them cheerful again not just by showing magic to them, but also by helping their lives through donationsâ.
