First Day of Rehearsals!

posted on: Monday, September 10th, 2012

Oh! How I’ve missed you all! The past few days have been a whirlwind. We’re settling in well enough, though! Its a beautiful city… And its home for the next few months. We still don’t have cable or Internet power at home, so we’re buying any and everything at Starbucks to borrow their service. With all the money we’ve spent there they should be able to sell $10 coffee for the next ten years ;).

Well, today is the first day of school…rehearsal. I have my new bag, my books (script), my clean clothes, and I’m even being taken to the ‘school door’ by my Big Daddy;). I’m nervous, but blessed, excited, and so very supported by the love and encouragement of so many. The next few weeks are going to be a challenge trying to find the ‘voice’ of Rachel. Her singing voice will sound a lot like mine (sorry about that;)) and my aim is to find who she is in my body! It’s not going to be easy, especially since the body she inhabited before was quite a great

 one;).HHTeam begged me to let you hear a song from the new album and since it’s the first day of rehearsal, I thought it was fitting so here’s a clip of my version of ‘Run To You!’ Click here to listen on YouTube.

Well, Wish me God’s blessings, luck and many ‘theatrical’ broken legs! Here we go…let’s write it…Chapter 22: The Bodyguard!
