Friday night, I did my first open mic night.
I had not quite practiced , but unlike my older self, I jumped into it anyways.
I met some very nice and friendly people, including a very well mannered and confidant high schooler.
I could not help and marvel at how poised this young woman was for her age.
My song was a bit of a disaster. I was a bit nervous, but mostly it was the lack of practice. I started singing a whole octave higher, and finished it that way. Screechy, and I forgot the lyrics.
I had a lot of fun, and I could tell that I would benefit from being in front of people. I sensed that I did not care as much as I used to about being super good with the performance, but really cared about the scene and the music of others.
Next time, though, I hope to sing better, and be more smooth with my ice breaker with the crowd. Nothing like practice.
And I want to close my eyes , grab the moment and sing my heart out!!
