Also, excellent job Bones !!!11!!

If he felt he hit it out of the park, he did.

You can tell if you are stretching a pitch. He would have known if that were off.

The other parts are presence. If Bones was on his A game, it would be something to see.

At his age I never had that "presence" when singing. Public speaking was another matter.

AC- I cannot believe how whacked out stressed I was over this. when he came out... when we got home... I just wanted to sleep. I don't think I've slept in a week.

Thomas- Yeah, he can tell. This is his forte. And today he felt really good...

I've been concerned. I've not posted it here, but something is off about his voice. He had a cold for about (not kidding) six weeks. It had this nasty cough. Ever since, his voice does not sound... whole. It sounds, airy. If he makes it in, if his voice doesn't clear, I'm taking him to an ENT I know that does this kind of work with performers.

He and I just had this conversation today on public speaking vs. singing. He told me he loves public speaking and it doesn't phase him, but this auditioning with vocal makes me a mess inside.

When I finally get the video posted, you'll see he still doesn't smile when he sings. But when he's with a group? He emotes so much his director has to tell him not to smile, 'This song is in Korean. The guy's girlfriend just died. Seem sad,ok?"

Whew - I'm so glad the stress of the audition is over. I know it will be difficult waiting to see what happens, but if he did his best then that's all that can be done. At least now you don't have to worry about him getting the flu and not having his chance. Sending best thoughts and prayers and all other good vibes to the universe that he is chosen for one of the spots.

First thing that sound reminded me is a well hit golf shot. Different metaphor, same meaning.

Still, good on him. I hope that is how it plays out for him come April. That'll do something to decrease the trouble available to him during high school. And give him good memories. I was a band geek and had lots of fun doing it. Memories that still grace me with a smile at the thought and sea stories I still tell.

Me? While he is singing in church with his God given pleasant voice gracing God, I'm singing with my God given less than pleasant voice getting even. I play with the cards I'm dealt. :-)

He's mostly off the hook now while you can fret for the next three months. :D
