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!!!
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!
PS: This is my 100th Blog post! Woo hoo! Yeah for me!
