Ohmygoodness, I can see how nervous you are from your body language and such, but OHMYGOODNESS, you can SING, girl! I'm so proud of your taking the chance to get up and just do it! Bill's a lucky guy!
Thanks, Mia. I wasn't nervous. Really. I was holding my glasses and am always a bit awkward up there but I wasn't nervous. When I sang the first time "Drift Away," I was nervous. My voice was REALLY shaking. It's all in fun. Not like I'm taking it on the road! I hope you're well.
Woof Woof Woof !!!!!
Just start a little lower, and you won't have any trouble hitting
the high notes. Low notes are very sexy when sung by a woman -
and you, my dear, are ALL WOMAN !! Double Woof! Woof !!
I wish the camera had focused on Bill so we could see him. A split screen with two cameras would be really cool, for the next time. Bill is not a "lucky" guy. "Luck" has nothing to do with it. Bill is a real
Mench. He proves that one can be very, very smart and very, very loving. Kathy, you are not the shy, quiet girl I met decades ago. Anyway keep singing and BELT IT OUT !!! like you are Babe Ruth pointing to the stands.
The problem is I can't seem to find a happy medium between the high (which I sang...pretty badly I might say) and low since I have trouble projecting when my voice is lower. Like Jane wrote below, I need to warm up. I didn't. But it was fun. Now if only I can take that courage to business, I'd be raking in the bucks! Miss you guys! xoxo
I just LOVE IT!!! You are awesome... I think you look & sound like a pro on the stage!! Especially since that was the first run... Honestly, I can see you performing... You seem comfortable up there... A STAR is born... ;)
you got guts. . . and a voice! you need a good warm-up to hit the high notes and transpose the piece down a few notes. protect your voice. xx
Like your last name, Jane. Very clever.
Is it guts, Jane, or just not caring how I sound up there since the group is a very comfortable one to be with. It's funny how Laraine (who was holding the phone recording it) would laugh and the phone would shake. I heard Bill in there some time too. I would have to practice singing it lower...or higher which I can do if I took the time to do it, I guess.
Did he propose after that compelling request?
Kwayah says "I want to give Kathy a small kiss."
That is so cute, Lisa! So great to talk tonight. Give Kwayah a big kiss from me!
No proposal yet. Think it was my poor singing? Ha Ha!
Guts Schmuts -- It doesn't take guts to sing. Every child can sing. No one comes up and beats you with a stick or drags you off to jail if you sing off tune or miss a note. The idea that it takes guts to sing is an illusion. By imagining that it takes guts, you feed the idea that it is like swimming in a shark tank. It isn't. It's play. You have to approach it as PLAY. P - L - A - Y. There is nothing fearful to overcome -- you just imagine that there is. Get tough with yourself and tell that voice within you that says its scary to sing to take a hike. Do you still love me after this rant?
Well, Selwyn, it's your view on singing. For a lot of people (including me) it's about getting over the fear of looking like a fool. When I am with my family, I agree, it doesn't take guts to sing. I am not being judged by them. I just...sing. When I went to sing "Fever" a few weeks ago and the restaurant was packed, I was petrified! I felt judged and it wasn't as much fun. So, it took guts to do it. It was much easier to sit at the table and have another glass of wine.
So, stop picking on my friend, Jane!!!! Ha Ha!!!! Yes, Selwyn, I still love you after your rant.
P.S. I liked your article on music education. :)
If I didn't know that you love me, and if I didn't know that you know that I love you, I would not have written something that seems so harsh. But I DO know that you love me, and I DO know that you know that I love you. So - I know that you know that the idea was to give the "fear demon" a kick in the rear end -- not to criticize either you or Jane. Bam! Bam! Bam! -- Take that -- fear demon -- wherever you are. Begone.
You're so cute when you're kicking demons in the butt! I know you know I know!
Loved this Kati! Reminded me of singing when we were kids. Remember all those afternoons that we sang to Fiddler on the Roof?
I love that 99% of the time you are always game, to step out of your comfort zone,in order to make & share a good memory!
Great job my sweet friend!
Those were very special times, Kathleen. I remember them fondly. We would stand up on the bed with a hairbrush in hand and belt it out! Cashman and West, Fiddler on the Roof. Fun times!
