If anything gets him permanently in the Arts HS, it will be his ability to sing-out without other people supporting him.

You have no idea how important that is to the choir director to have gutsy singers to hold up the rest of the choir. (That and it makes him a natural soloist.)

So when he stands up straight and pushes with his diaphragm, can he make his voice echo off the back of the auditorium? He might have to pitch his voice a little deeper to do it.

You know... I don't know. I don't know if he's tried that.

I know that last week they were singing something and he hit a wrong note and the director stopped and said, 'Bones... you can't hit a wrong note..." and Bones said something like, 'Yeah, sorry. Sometimes it happens." to which the Director said, pointing to the other baritones, "They, THEY can hit a wrong note, but YOU have to get it right!"

So it's starting to become a running joke.

I think it has something to do with the physics and air movement with his body shape. He has this really broad chest for his size and a long torso. The kid can really move some air. There was never any doubt where he was in the house when he was a baby.

I switched schools my senior year of HS. Before I joined the choir at my new school, it had always been Todd L-- and the AHS choir. After I joined, it was Todd L--, WB and the AHS choir!

Todd L-- and I were the loud ones who carried our sections!

Glad you're feeling nearly 100%
