My kid has guts

Each year my son's high school choir class does a spring show called "The Spring Spectacular." The tradition has seniors voting on a theme. The seniors get first shot to perform in small groups (duets, trios, quartets, etc...) or solos and any other spots are given to students starting with juniors, then sophomores, and finally any remaining spots are for freshmen.

Mac is a junior so he gets a spot. And since Mac is one of the "stars" of the choir, of course he gets a spot! And I'm really trying to be a braggart or anything but he is really good. And he really has guts.

He gets to pick what he wants to sing. They kids are given pretty much carte blanc as long as it's not nasty (no cuss words, no porno, etc) and as long as it meshes with the theme. The kids are also allowed to sing with karaoke, or with the piano.

Mac has picked his song for his solo. He is actually hoping it can work with the theme. I'm not sure what I'm hoping...

He wants to sing "It's raining men." In drag. With a few of the girls in choir as his "do-wop" back up- but they would be dressed as men. He even has choreography planned.

And he won't be shaving his beard for it either.

Oh god.

And if you're not familiar with the song, here ya go.....

Mac's mom,

Hi Maggie, cute blog. I can't sing worth a darn!

My name is Yoli. I’m so excited to meet you through Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. I posted for the first time 2/13/10.

I wanted to visit the other people who posted as well. I'm as a single Christian mom of 2 teen kids, working full-time, sewing part-time, and living on faith in our new city. Come on over sometime for a visit.

God Bless You!

Yoli- thanks for visiting, reading and commenting!

I'll be stopping by your blog soon.

Good luck in your new city- relocating can be tough, but it's always an adventure!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
