Ok, so the truth is I’ve had a recording of the recital for over a month now, but I’ve been too chicken to listen to it. Performing is scary, but listening to a recording of that performance is about five million times scarier. Bare naked mistakes, you know?
But then this morning, with the house to myself, I was cleaning the bathroom and singing Alladin and thought, “Damn, I sound kinda good.” So I decided, f*ck it. I’m going open that recording file and listen to it.
The opera performance is pretty bad because I’m coughing and stuff, and because it’s just bad, so I’ll spare you that recording. But (in an extreme act of bravery!) below is a link to my Norah Jones piece, “Don’t Know Why.” Don’t get your hopes up, it’s not great by any means. The recording is super quiet, but you can still hear me. Click the link below, go towards the bottom of the page where it says “listen to mp3” and press the play button.
