Broadway at the Edge

When Bekah came home from piano lessons a month ago and told us her teacher asked her to sing in an upcoming performance of Broadway songs at the Edge, we weren't sure what to think.  Could Bekah sing?  It turns out she can! 

A super-fun crew of local talent and some from Northome, Grand Rapids, Coleraine and Deer River practiced long and hard (and had fun while doing so).

Here's Bekah after getting ready at home for opening night.  Mascara!!!

This child is just amazing.  She was not even nervous!  I was WAY more freaked out than she was.  She just waltzed out on stage and sang like she did it all the time.  Never would have known it was her first time singing in a performance.  She did scurry off the stage rather quickly after her song, but other than that she was pretty much a total pro.  Cris had done a great job working on her song with her in just a few short weeks of time.

 Bekah sang "Be Prepared" from The Lion King which is sort of a strange song for a little girl to sing, but she loves it.  She did great and everyone laughed when she voiced the part that is a conversation between Scar and his hyenas and when she gave an evil cackle at the end of the song.

 She also sang "One Jump" from Aladdin with the other kids in the show and the whole cast ended the night with a song together.

I've been tuned in to the "Broadway Hits" channel on Pandora Radio ever since this performance.  What fun music and what a great introduction into performing for our little star!
