The Day My Daughter Made Me Cry (Again)

You may recall a post just about a year ago where I shared the first time I heard my daughter sing alone and the effect it had on me. Not only was I completely amazed by her talent, but I was also so proud of how far she had come in overcoming a childhood of social fear and anxiety. I still reread that post and watch that video and cry every.single.time, if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it 😉

I had the rare pleasure to hear her again Monday night as she performed once again for her musical theater class final and again it took my breath away. She was born with music in her heart and loves Broadway as much as I do (but I can’t take credit for her talent, she gets that from her dad).

I really don’t want to see her living a life as a starving artist, but I hope she uses her talent to follow her dreams wherever they take her. I will wait patiently for every moment like this that I will get to hear her and dream my own dream of seeing her someday sharing her talent with the world.

For her final this year she sang a duet with one of her best friends, Danny. Here is their performance of “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again” from the Broadway musical “Promises, Promises” I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
