When I'm super stressed, there's one thing that I can always count on to calm me down. And let me tell you, college is stressful. So I sit down at the piano and just play away. I had a monster homework assignment I had to get done today that's due tomorrow, and I'd been working on it for hours straight. I was going crazy! So I had to get out of the apartment. I grabbed my piano books and headed over to the Snow building on campus. There was one practice room left open, so I grabbed it. I sat down at the piano and played away. I'd been wanting to record my song I wrote, so brought my camera with me. An hour later, I felt much better and had gotten the song and some others recorded. So I guess now that I've told you about them, I have to show you. So here they are! Just click on the links and it'll take you to my youtube page.
This first one is "Unstoppable," the song I wrote a few weeks ago. It's still not quite perfect, but it's getting there. I wrote it for a couple of close friends in mind, but it goes for anybody. We are unstoppable when the Lord is on our side. Don't mind the mistake I made. :) Unstoppable
I'm really wanting to try out to be a Young Performing Missionary in Nauvoo for next summer. Ever since we went there last summer, it's been on the top of my To Do list. For part of my audition, I have to sing 2 minutes of an upbeat, Broadway song and 2 minutes of a hymn or ballad. One of my favorite Broadway songs is Don't Rain on My Parade from Funny Girl. So I'm using that one! It's by all means not perfect yet, but it's getting better. Thank goodness I don't actually have to play the piano for that part of the audition! So good luck Mom! Or whoever plays it for me. :) Don't Rain on my Parade
The other song I want to audition with is my favorite hymn ever, I Believe in Christ. This is a beautiful arrangement in the EFY book from a couple of years ago. I Believe in Christ
I'm so thankful for good music and for the talents which Heavenly Father has blessed me with! I know I'm not the absolute greatest, but I don't really care. It's just important that I can bring myself and others joy with the talents which I do have.
