Another Grainy Back of the Auditorium Video....

... or How to Get Over Stage Fright, Part Deux

Last Friday was Bridget's elementary school talent show.  She's too shy to sing for us, but for some reason being on a stage with a crowd is a whole 'nother ball game.

First of all, I just have to say a few things about the show in general....  The kids are amazing.  While some of them truly do have talent, the amazing fact is whether they are talented or not, they have the desire to get up on stage and share their stuff.  Each and every one got up there and believed they were a superstar and it was awesome.  I had a big silly grin on my face the whole evening, I was so proud of every kid.

Secondly, but most importantly, Mrs. Anderson rocks!  This dedicated lady is the music teacher at the school and she produces a quality show.  There are no sound system mess-ups, no amateurish mistakes.  She treats these kids like superstars.  There are spotlights, follow-spots, a sound board w/ a great technician, and a stage crew that works like a well-oiled machine.

Bridget sang a song called "Hip to My Heart" by The Band Perry.  Kind of a pop-ish country song.  She agonized over every bit of her outfit, we argued over make up.  She rehearsed in the privacy of her room for hours on end.

So, without further ado.....   enjoy!

The crowd is going wild. They're on their feet clapping and cheering! At least the two here were!

Was that a tear I saw?
