Tomorrow, Tomorrow, She'll Be Singing Tomorrow....

At the beginning of February, I signed Olivia up for voice lessons at a school of music near us.  I really just wanted to give her some more experience singing songs the right way since she sings pretty much 24/7.  At the end of May, they held a graduation recital at a performing arts center, and Olivia said she wanted to perform!  She did the entire song of Tomorrow from Annie, and while I know I am biased, I really think she was the best in her age group!  The recital was two hours looonnnnnggggg and most of it was piano.  Thankfully, Olivia was the second person to perform {the first voice} so she didn't have long to get nervous, and I didn't have long to get worked up.  Sydney was able to stick through about 4 songs total before David had to take her home.  I'm sure he was sad about that! :)

I really am so proud of her!  She practiced a lot and really nailed it.  We thought she may need the words and so we had them typed up on a sheet and had black card stock behind it.  She decided she didn't want to hold it, and when it was her turn to sing, Sydney grabbed the sheet and held it up {in the audience} for her to read!!!!!  It was THE cutest thing ever!  I don't know how Olivia didn't get distracted by that, but she just kept on singing.

She got a trophy, and oh man, she was proud of that!  

After the recital, we took her to dinner and she just looked so grown up after her day!

I was one proud Nana after Olivia's voice recital. She nailed it for sure. Olivia has a beautiful voice and I hope she continues to enjoy singing and working to get better. Love her 'grown up" picture.
