Last week A's band played at the Norwich Fair, which I had never been to before, and A got to be a lead singer, as well. Needless to say, she did a stand-up job, belting it out and projecting her voice beautifully. I was a little nervous about the gig because it was thrust upon her out of nowhere, but again, she did a wonderful job, and we're all really proud of her.
The summer schedule has been busy with gigs but with school out and people on vacation, not all the band members are around for every occasion. Their lead singer couldn't make it to the gig so they sort of abruptly bumped A to the forefront with only a few days notice. She was willing to take the lead, and with only a couple of days to rehearse, she went for it and did a great job. In my opinion, she really shined when she belted it out, it just seemed to flow naturally. She also played guitar but her main job was vocals.
Afterward she hung out with the band and they did the fair, which I think was a lot of fun for her. There were a lot of people she knew at the show so it was extra fun for her, and best of all, she put herself in a new situation that was uncomfortable and maybe even a little scary, and rose to the occasion. You can't beat those kind of life experiences. All in all it was a fun fair, even though we ended up being there late into the evening and it was a long day. Then again, you can't complain when you not only get to eat a corndog, but get mom's blessing to do so.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to eric maniac for the pic.
