So Ms. Fimnora Westcaw is at it again! For today’s Monday Music Medicine Show she asks:
So my beautiful Monday Music Medicine Show friends, if it pleases you to play, share with us: What music fits your day, today?
Unfortunately I’ve been having one of THOSE days already and it’s only 9:59. (Too much sugar yesterday I expect…) But in reading and commenting on Catherine’s blog at Atypical 60, I was reminded of a YouTube video that never fails to lift my spirits because it shows what you can do if you put your mind to it.
This young man went on to win Britain’s talent contest that year and become a phenomenon in the operatic music industry. His name is Paul Potts and this audition video of his from Britain’s Got Talent never fails to inspire me and leave me a bit teary. He had gone to opera school in Venice but when he would have to sing for the instructors there he always froze up. They eventually discouraged him from even trying.
I posted it on Catherine’s blog so I’ve watched it several times this morning. 🙂 Though it’s only a part of the song, Nessun Dorma, I figure it works for Fim’s challenge ’cause I can’t get it out of my head now! And I do have a recording of the full piece. I think I’ll go stick it on. And I’m not even and OPERA fan!
