A Musical Me...

For those of you who know me, I love singing.  I love music.  I love everything about it!  After a year hiatus, I am getting back into choir with my all-girls-chorus I sing with in Chicago called "Cantante Domino."  I am very excited for this :)

Even though in that choir,I sing Latin masses, i.e. Faure, Rheinberger, Mozart, etc., my biggest love of music, besides Big Band Swing/Jazz, is definitely MUSICALS!

Ok yes I am a Gleek as well!  But I have been in musicals since I was little - performing "Godpsell" twice  once in grade school and then again in college - I love singing musicals.  I have a great admiration and "wishing I was her" feeling for both Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth - if you haven't been able to hear their voices - please go out and do that immediately - local library and YouTube are both free!!!

The other weekend, Zachary and I saw a movie and there were just musical previews galore.  They showed the new "Rock of Ages" movie coming out as well as the new "Les Miserables."  The latter one, I cannot wait to see as it has one of the best songs ever written in it "I Dreamed a Dream."  Have you ever heard it?  It's one of my favs.

What is your favorite musical?  Mine has to be a tie between the classic "West Side Story" and the new "Wicked."  If you haven't seen either - please do!  They are phenomenal!  I love "Les Miserables" as well but it is a little sad - but in a good and powerful way!

What is your favorite musical song?  Mine is a tie between "Defying Gravity" from the musical "Wicked," and "I Dreamed a Dream" from "Les Misersables", and thirdly "America" from "West Side Story."

I'm in a musical mood - so I want to know what drives your love for Musicals!  Let me know!
