The Wedding Singer

I am the wedding singer for my cousin's soiree in April, or is it May. Anyway, I am thinking about doing Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" in a slightly higher key. Any thoughts on this song? Is the text right for a wedding?

Any other suggestions? I am an alto, if that helps.

Amanda, It sounds good to me, but you might want to pass it by your cousin just to make sure!

Yes, I am not going to just get up there and start belting :-D :-V (that is me singing smiley)

nice smiley, Amanda.

You're back to your blogging-fiend self, I see. (I've been accused of being an over-commenter *gasp!* I'll just start posting more, I suppose.

Karissa there is nothing wrong with commenting a lot! That's the best part about blogging. Getting the comments from other people!

Who accused you of being an overcommenter? I want to know. :-( They are going to get it from me :-)

Hey, that's a great song choice Amanda, but the end gets so repetitive...you should improv a little bit I think...that would be fun, don't you think? Yay for the personalized wedding song.

I agree about the repetitiveness. I have been trying out a little soul on the end. She has me singing other songs too. I think I am going to be doing 5 or 6. You may not hear me talking toward the end of the semester...just a bunch of expressionable grunts. I think a lot of people will benefit from this. MAYBE Paul will even get some ego back.

lol. I just realized that isn't the Clay Aiken song. Good thing! ;)

I think we are the only two people in the U.S. that hate him.

HEY! I'm the cousin! So suprised that I made your blog!!! :) I may have to check back more often! ;) PERSONALLY, I like the song and the lyrics, although I did not listen to the song in its entirety. If it drags on, well, we can improvise! :)

I don't know if this is an appropriate place to tell you about this... But I was thinking of these songs: (Since you didn't show up at Grand-mools on Sunday)

Parents Prayer Stephen Curtis Chapman

I am Your Angel Celine Deon ?????? Maybe not for the ceremony

Love Will Be our Home Stephen Curtis Chapman

Faithful Friend Stephen Curtis Chapman

I Will Be Here - Stephen Curtis Chapman

No Greater Gift no piano with Amanda & Desiree

You Raise Me Up Josh Groban

So what do you think??? And do you have any other ideas, Miss Music Extraordinaire??? I'm open for suggestions!

And thank you all for your contributions as well. :) If you all need anything shoot me an email!

My comment WAS very nicely spaced to ensure ease of reading... I do not know WHAT happened!!!

Sorry I didn't come up to grandmool's. Homework and acute sleep deprivation called. We will get those songs in the works though. I like all of the songs (I know) and the artists you picked. I am sure everything will be okay on the musical end of things. You just worry about Everything Else.
