well,oh crap

I sing and play music to relax and to my make my 31 yo lil hcp girl happy. Seems a CD I made (unprofessionally) for my daughter, has made rounds in our region of the country. A Pastor from a church just asked me to sing a couple songs during service. Ive sang live before. but never for a church, and yes, I view them as the "other side" I will do it,,so Tess can watch me sing live again, she loves it. But I am kinda freaking out because they want choir involved and Im afraid they will not hear the music as I do. Practice sessions start tomorrow, to give the choir, " a getaway from Christmas Cantana" I feel Im being used in a way,,but will do it loud and proud for my beliefs. But I am freaking out a bit. Thanks for listening

1. Have a peach-somewhere visible-in the props or stage pieces.

Then during the show "find it" and go MMMM-Peach!


Ok-just grin & wing it but congratulations do your daughter proud.

7. Don't be afraid that they don't see it as you do...

Joni Mitchell once told an audience that she couldn't create the same performance every show. She said it would be like asking Van Gogh to paint a Starry Night every evening.

And art is reinterpreted through the eyes and ears of everyone who might experience it. That's what it's about. You created what you felt but others see it through their own lens. Maybe you'll really like their ideas, those church folks can get some darn good music goin' on. It's where I learned my early lessons.

I think you should go with an open mind and I'd almost be willing to bet money that you'll have a really good time. Having the choir behind you is a big complement, take it and run. And congrats!

8. this X 10000

Mrs K works with me on music,, we just spent 40 minutes talking about this exact thought, that it took us 30 seconds to read.. ty so much. As Freddie Mercury once said out loud, We will ROCK YOU!

thanks to all, for support,

Koz

9. good luck man, you got this!

Whenever I've been freaking out, getting ready to get up on stage, I always calm myself with a steady diet of 'what's the worst that can happen?' ... and it doesn't take long to come to the conclusion that the answer is ... nothing THAT bad can happen here.

Right?

I think ... ya know mr l ... this is a hell of a lot less dangerous than ... I dunno ... getting in my car to drive to work every day? That sort of thing.

Then when you're up there, just lose yourself in your performance, focus entirely on what you're doing and pretend you're just doin' it front of the mirror, for yourself.

Hell, even if you pretty much suck, nobody is gonna hate you ... probably be great for some laughs down the road, too ...
