THE Wedding Singer

I woke up this morning to visions of me on stage, screwing up the lyrics at my cousin's wedding. Went back to sleep. Awakened by the sound of me not hitting the high note. Dreams are confidence drainers. I am the noodles, the water is the confidence, and I am entering a colander. AHHH.

Tonight is the rehearsal. I feel as if everything isn't happening.

I know I am going to cry, but these songs are tough--you have to keep your nerve and voice clear. Dang.

The songs:
1. I Will Be Here: Steven Curtis Chapman
2. Parent's Prayer (my least favorite)
3. No Greater Gift (song from high school sung as a duet a cappella)
4. You Raise Me Up: Josh Groban

This is the order chronologically.

My hands are shaking as I type this. AHHHH. Can't wait for my first wedding gig to be over.

I KNOW you can do it. So what if you cry--just wait until the song is over. Make it like playing a sport--there's no crying until it's over, happy OR sad.

You are going to be amazing, I just know it. I wish I could sing... :^)

Don't worry Amanda! I have the utmost confidence in you. If I can get up in front of my family and sing like a maniac...you can too!

Go get em Girl!

Although I think I could have done a more solid performance--my throat closed off @ the beginning of the first song--I think I did a reasonably good job. Next time, I am going to specify alto songs. Soprano I am not. Thanks so much for all the well-wishing. I appreciate all of your comments.

The bride and groom are officially on their honeymoon. Congratulations Craig and Amy Collins!!!!

The day was beautiful. But I think I will elope someday.
