105 Ways to Give a Book

Proud Mother Presents...

I rarely even show my kids’ pictures on this blog, but I couldn’t resist sharing this video of my ten year old singing a solo in her school summer theatre program. I know I’m her mom, but her voice is truly amazing. I’ve watched this several times, and I keep getting choked up over her performance. Please watch so I can share this with you, my friends.

She's got star quality!! As someone who sang as a child, too, I know how difficult it is to have the kind of stage presence she exhibits. Very impressive. And what a sweet, lovely voice!

She's amazing! What a wonderful voice, and she really projects the emotion of the song.

Oh, WHOA! Listen to her just belt out those notes -- all the right shading and emotion. Lucky, lucky girl. I know you must have just been in an agony of happiness and pride and trying not to sob louder than she was singing.

Is that from The Little Princess? Gosh, I know you must be so proud. And I see you will be making costumes for high school musicals...

WOW! Your daughter most definitely has a lovely voice. That was a wonderful performance--with great stage presence. You must be one proud mother.

Beautiful! And what a hard song to sing. Go, MotherReader's daughter!!

MotherReader said...

The song is "Home" from the stage version of Beauty and the Beast. I probably should have said that. I'm so excited to share this video and to read your sweet comments.

Abby said...

Oh, Pam, that is fabulous!! What a lovely, talented girl!

Sandra Stiles said...

What an awesome performance. Does she aspire to be an actress? Does she participate in community theater? I know the proud feeling you have as a parent seeing your child on stage. Way to go!!!

Karen said...

Bravo!! She has a beautiful voice.

On a funny note, I broke into this song when my hubby and I pulled into the driveway, getting back from our honeymoon. A good laugh was had by all. :)

Melissa said...

Impressive. She's got a future, if she wants it. If she doesn't, then at least she has an amazing talent to share. You have every right to be proud. :)

Vonna said...

Thanks for sharing! She is wonderful! My six year old has been expressing interest in singing on stage and I can't wait for her to come home today, so I can show her this. What an inspiration! You should be very proud!

Laura said...

Pam! Wow!! This is amazing! Just beautiful.

Congrats to Erin, and to you. Beautiful

She is just wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing her talent with us. I am a singer and never felt that composed when I was singing at that age. (Actually probably still not that composed) WOW!!!

Beth Kephart said...

I am in tears.

She is authentic.

What a great voice and such poise for her age! She's a natural. Thanks for sharing.

Good lord, Pam, she's outstanding! And she's TEN. It's really remarkable.


I hope she's as proud of herself as you are!
