You know those people who are (semi) professional singers/ actors/ actresses/ performers who sing all loud and dramatically in Church? Yeah, I find it pretty obnoxious. You’re not on stage or at an audition, so tone it down a bit, wouldja? And seriously, we all know you’re into performing. No need to brag or marvel at the sound of your own voice. Please stop immediately. Learn to blend in a bit.
Sing out pretty, and sing out clear,
But you’re not the only one I wanna hear!
PS: I am friends with plenty of musical/theater people who don’t do this. They know when to turn on the Broadway, and when to be more subtle. This isn’t a diss to those kind of people. Just a diss to the annoying people.
Yes they do! These boys are the REAL DEAL. Ain’t no sell-outs wearing cowboy hats singing with some ugly fake twang (I ain’t naming names, but ya’ll know who I’m talkin’ ’bout) . Expect to hear more about ZBB on this blog. The night I saw them in concert with Renae was one that has influenced me to this day. Don’t know where to start musically because it’s ALL amazing, but here’s an all-time favorite:
(best part is 3:00-3:30)
Seriously, that voice gives me chills, and it’s even BETTER in person.
Great memories 🙂 Of the concert, and also of my hair looking that beautiful.
No beatin’ around the bush on that title (figuratively OR literally)! I had my NEW friend Kemp and my OLD friend Carlos help me out. Check it stat (and please excuse my being a little dance happy. I’m not as smooth/subtle as my friends):
And if you think that was entertaining (probably mainly because Katherine was making a fool of herself), it actually wasn’t anything compared to what these guys can do for real. Here’s just a taste of their INSANE TALENT. And yes Mom, the following is improvised.
Here’s Carlos’s youtube channel.
And here’s Kemp’s twitter.
Oh, and just had to include this one too:
Good problem to have, I’d say.
SOME MONEY SO FAR…but not a ton 🙂
Don’t want to get into that whole pride cycle thing described in the Book of Mormon. Although I AM already a Lamanite, right?
I WANT YOU TO BE PART OF MY BLOG! I am all about collaboration: musical, writing, business, product review, food, sharing of religious beliefs, etc. No promises, but as long as I feel like it represents myself, my family, my friends, and the Lord well, I’m up to discuss it. Dead serious. firstname.lastname@example.org
doesn’t always work out exactly as you hoped. But we got a decent one here:
Lil Wayne wanted to know if this girl was down for a sing-off.
Know what she said?
“Honestly, I’m down like the economy!”
Compare this (start at 2:24-3:00):
To this (start at 1:02-1:43):
(I changed the gender pronouns. I do that kind of thing a lot.)
Readers, what do you think?
PS. Wayne, I love and respect you no matter what (not really, but just didn’t want to come off as judgmental and also wanted to soften this next part), BUT your body is a temple…why would you want to put graffiti on it? Join the LDS Church and I’ll help you pay to get rid of those tats (but readers FYI you don’t have to do that if you want to become a Mormon-just thought I’d clear that up)…
(can’t choose a version)

PS I appreciate these songs for their honesty and even finding gentle humor in controversy. However, I’m not into music that glorifies certain things, say immorality, drugs, violence, or suicide. Fine line of propriety again.
