Kevin’s fans are so creative in many ways from painting and computer art to writing and crafts. This lovely story is from Pilar in Spain, who sent it quite a while ago, and who made an amazing cross-stitch for Kevin. My humblest apologies for posting it so late, Pilar. Enjoy!
In January, 2011, my good friend, Teresa, asked me to make an artwork by using the cross-stitch so she could offer it to her idol, Kevin Sorbo, at the Film Festival in Estepona, Spain, in September, 2011.
She asked me to do it by using the ship of Kevin’s (television) series, “Andromeda,” so, I did it, and wrote “Sorbo/Hunt” on it.
Please take a look at Kevin holding it:
For me it feels so good being able to show you the photo right now. I’m very grateful to Teresa for it – it gives me great pleasure looking at my artwork in its owner’s hands.
Here’s Pilar’s beautiful work:
I am slowly catching up with the many amazing stories, movie reviews and artwork that you have faithfully contributed to this blog. My sincerest apologies for my tardiness. I know that you have been and are working hard for Kevin on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and other social media outlets. Kudos to you all! Kevin’s fans are truly THE BEST ON THE PLANET!! Yeah!!!
Here is a story that our great friend Mara sent from Adriana in 2011. Many, many thanks for your extreme patience, ladies, and for forwarding this fantastic piece. Enjoy!
My name is Adriana and I live in São Paulo, Brazil. I’m married and have two beautiful daughters.
I “met” Kevin through a friend who asked me to be part of an international forum for Kevin Sorbo and I accepted it.
I was living a hard time in my life by then…
You could ask me, “What does Kevin to do with that?”
Oh! He’s got a lot to do with it…
I was living in a small little boring world; nothing was really amusing me… So, by being at the forum I eventually kept finding out another world (with) plenty of new, interesting and amazing things, and Kevin is among them.
I think he’s an example to be followed, and I love his characters, particularly Hercules. I’m sure he’s an adorable man…
I’ve got a signed photo by him – that made me so happy (that) my heart felt (like) going out through my mouth!
What beautiful eyes Kevin’s got – they reflect his soul. He’s a man of integrity with so many qualities I admire!
I’m still not able to understand what he says, but I’m learning English so (that) one day I’m going to meet him in person!
It’s finally here! International Kevin Sorbo Day! Yay!
No, Kevin doesn’t drop down your chimneys with presents or leave chocolate Kevins in your baskets or anything else you people are thinking. So, stop that!
This is HIS day, no matter how much he hates it. Some of us got together and created presents just for him. We hope you all enjoy them as much as we did making them.
Happy Birthday, Kevin!!!!
Many thanks to all who contributed: Loli, Nancy, Mara, Rhonda, Malena, Jan, Carol and Jacqui.
AMAZON WISHES TO KEVIN ON HIS BIRTHDAY
BY CAROL HOWELL (DESSY) 9/22/2012
One lovely sunny day I traveled down a new way
Went silently o’er the road and around the bend
Not expecting adventure, not expecting news
When to my surprise I ran into an old friend
‘Twas an Amazon from the wonderful days gone by
A comrade and warrior from long ago
A friend who walked with me and loves our Big Guy
And who also told stories of his adventures to and fro
As we sat and caught up she shared happy news
A celebration was drawing friends from near and far
Our dear Kevin was not sharing the clues
But the celebration of his birth was about to start
Excitement began to flow thru my veins
A smile crossed my weary face
Was time to gather our sisters together
And begin to decorate this quiet place
It had been a while since we’d gathered together in force
His faithful Amazons had been pretty quiet
But still we were near quietly staying the course
Now we joyfully prepared to start a happy riot
Its time to count our numbers
Its time to stand up and shout
His sweet Amazons no longer slumber
From every corner they’re dancing out
Each Amazon shouting their happy salutations
Each one crying out their wishes to the sky
All carrying presents and congratulations
We’re all here to celebrate the birthday of our Big Guy
Knowing he likes to keep it to himself
And not tell the world he’s a year older
His Amazons remind him he’s the same to them
And the Happy Birthday sign goes up from its folder
It’s time to celebrate; it’s time to dance
It’s time to gather together friends from times gone by
And share our love and stories of adventure and romance
And wish Happy Birthday and joy to our one and only Big Guy
We want you to know our hearts are bursting with joy
At the journey you’ve traveled and the great things you’ve done
The place you’ve come from and the places you are going
We stand together as always celebrating with you as ONE
So on your special day Kevin we send our love and cheer
We dance and sing and laugh still dear friends
Remember Kevin it is you that’s the reason for this lifetime bond
And YOU are the good and kind person who has brought us here
Remember Kevin no matter where you travel no matter where you go
Your Amazons are still here standing strong: It’s not past
We send this Amazon Birthday wish so you will always know
We stand with you all way, Your Ole Amazons love stands fast
Here’s the second of Jacqui-D’s Happy Birthday, Kevin videos:
Tomorrow is Kevin’s birthday. Wahoooo! Or as he says, “Uggggh…”
In either case, I’ve decided to officially make September 24, on my blog anyway…
International Kevin Sorbo Day!!!
Who wants to celebrate???? Yeeehawwww!!!
Let’s get this party started!
Here are a few vids to whet your appetite:
Jacqui-D posted the first of three she made. Watch for the second one tomorrow and the third on Tuesday. (That’s her singing, BTW, very nice!!!)
This one is by Malena from her beautiful artwork:
Teresa made this one with all kinds of cool special effects:
Hi, all, many, many apologies for posting this so late. I regrettably missed our good friend Sanne’s excellent Sorbos-Tribute’s 15-year anniversary in April. Happy Belated Anniversary, Sanne!
Our sincerest congratulations to and admiration for Sanne, aka KevFriend, from Germany for a website well done! Many of us look to her for inspiration as one of our most talented Sorbo Sister artists. She creates monthly calendars, screen caps and collages among many of her artistic talents, and keeps us abreast of Kevin news.
Here’s to many more years of her great gift and enthusiasm!
Please see Sanne’s story below as to how she became a Kevin fan, began creating Kevin art and subsequently started her beautiful website.
SW: How did you become a Kevin fan?
Sanne: I wrote a story and my best bud asked why I didn’t have pictures for my characters. I took Kevin’s picture – it was my real first Kevin picture from 1996 and my favorite autograph. I searched for more and so started my “love” with Kevin.
SW: How and why did you start your website?
Sanne: One day, I thought I could create (a) small website, (and) Sorbos-Tribute was born in mid-1997.
I contacted other webmasters and friends, begging for permissions (to use their art).
So, the website grew.
In 2000, my dear friend Hebea, who was a longtime Sorbo fan and had a great Sorbo website, gave her permission to me, Sorbos-Tribute.
After Kevin and Sam came together, I included Sam into the site.
SW: What do you do to keep Sorbos-Tribute fresh and new?
Sanne: I love to work on “the lady,” as I call my site; she is a part of me.
The site was closed in 2010 after 13 years for nearly a year when I put it under construction and added a new layout and special copyright security stuff.
I changed the layout, added some new (screen) caps and pictures. So, the lady is back!
SW: Tell me a little about making your beautiful art.
Sanne: Some of my friends create wonderful art. I asked to get help and (to) start to create my own work.
Some of my friends create stuff for my site and others share their work.
(Screen) caps were the first pictures that I found about Kevin. So, I love to create and add them on my site.
SW: Anything else?
Sanne: I met some wonderful people; some of them are still my friends. I was able to meet Kevin. He is a sweetheart, but this will be another story.
Please see Sanne’s awesome website here: http://www.sorbos-tribute.com/

Hi, everyone, a very Merry Christmas to you all!
This year I wish to share Sanne’s beautiful holiday message with you. She is one of our amazing Kevin artists who also creates our monthly calendars.
Sanne recently revamped her popular Sorbo’s-Tribute website (story to come) and gave us some stunning art for Advent, as well as many other lovely pieces. She topped her Christmas art this year with the following great collage. Many, many thanks, dear friend!
Wow! Exciting news, everyone!
Steve Azar, an amazing singer/songwriter/musician, just released his newest CD TODAY!
Entitled, “Steve Azar – Delta Soul Volume One,” the nine-track album features blues, rock, and soul from Azar’s Mississippi Delta roots.
Watch this blog in the next day or so for an interview with the talented Steve Azar!
Here’s more about “Delta Soul Volume One” from his website at www.steveazar.com
“It’s a style of music born in the people that come from the Mississippi Delta. It tells the stories of a hard life, the mixing of cultures and race, poverty and pride. It’s about earning a meager living from the cotton crop, or the long hours on the Mississippi river. The music of the Delta has influenced some of the greatest rock and blues music of all time. Eric Clapton, The Stones, Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top and so many others have been inspired by the sounds that resonate deep in its very soil.
“‘Delta Soul’ is the music from a man born and raised in the heart of it all. It’s a mix of the sounds and musical lessons he learned growing up in Greenville, MS. It’s honest and pure, the lyrics are a journey through the places he’s been and the people he’s known. It’s the stories shared by family, friends and blues legends.
“Steve Azar mixes his Delta roots with blues, rock and soul, and a little touch of twang to create his sound, ‘Delta Soul.’ It’s a collection songs that take you along on Steve’s musical journey through his life in the Mississippi Delta.”
