Social Media Star Cameron Hamilton ‘Blown Away’ by Shen Yun

ATLANTA—Social media personality Cameron Hamilton said he felt blessed to be able to see Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Atlanta Symphony Hall on Dec. 26.

“It was just a great blessing to be here, to be able to experience it. … You can just see when everyone came together—it was just a beautiful thing to see all this talent in one space,” Mr. Hamilton said.  “Everything from the dancing, to the musical orchestra, the solo acts—I mean I was blown away.”

Mr. Hamilton, who works in artificial intelligence, and his wife Lauren are social media influencers. The two produce videos on YouTube, and each has over 2 million followers on Instagram.

After watching Shen Yun, Mr. Hamilton said he found inspiration from the performance.

“I’m sure we’ll incorporate some element of our experience here today going forward with our videos,” he said.

Based in New York, Shen Yun presents “classical Chinese dance in its purest form,” according to the company. Shen Yun’s website says that what it presents is more than just a performance: “it’s a revival of the beauty and goodness of China before communism.”

Mr. Hamilton said watching Shen Yun helped him learn more about what is happening in China today, as well as China’s rich culture. He also said watching the performance made him feel “at peace.”

The biggest thing that came to mind while watching the show was elegance.

“The biggest thing that came to mind while watching the show was elegance. It was really just the essence of elegance—watching the dancing, every movement was so fluid. I just felt very at peace watching the show,” he said.

Those who haven’t yet had the chance to see the performance “absolutely need to experience Shen Yun,” Mr. Hamilton added.

“It’s a unique performance experience, I don’t think you’ll find anything like it anywhere else. And I think if you want to learn more about the Chinese culture, it’s definitely the performance to see,” he said.

‘Been Waiting for Years to See It’

Bill Chatmon, CEO of Saladmaster by Rodmon & Assoc, was very happy to have the chance to see Shen Yun on Dec. 26.

“It was incredible. I’ve been waiting for years to see it, and I am so glad I made it over to this show,” Mr. Chatmon said.

“This show is just phenomenal. So I’m very fortunate to have seen it.”
