McGrath is amongst the most personable performers each year, and is easily one of the crowd favorites. Mark makes EVERYONE happy as he makes it a point to spend more than half of his show IN THE AUDIENCE!! That's right: he'll stand side by side, cheek to cheek with you as you attempt to remember how to take a selfie with your camera, while he sings into his microphone with his voice echoing through the speakers of the EPCOT amphitheater.
McGrath gives each set his all and, as a result, has to change out of his sweat-soaked shirts from set to set. But, he's super-entertaining, and exceptionally lively through it all. Probably the only moment that we didn't see the crowd on their feet is when Mark took a few moments to read a letter he had received from one of his fans in the audience. The fan had gone through a lot medically, and wanted to thank her husband through McGrath's acknowledgement... for a moment, Sugar Ray stopped playing their instruments, McGrath acknowledged the couple, read their letter over the speakers, then he stood by them while he sang and dedicated a song to them.
Sugar Ray, with McGrath as their frontman, is truly a class act. Looking forward to seeing them when they return for their 10th year as they continue to 'fly' amongst the hearts of all the Disney fans.
