If you could be on stage with your favorite performer, whom would you choose? Where would the performance be?
Oh my…. who would I get on stage with…. Lzzy Hale and the guys from Halestorm? Grace Potter & The Nocturnals? Barbra Streisand? (I know… you didn’t see that one coming…). I don’t think I can really pick as I switch up who I’m listening to on a daily basis. Some days are even NPR days.
What I know is that if any singer (HA! originally I wrote “sinner”… Freudian slip!) asked me to sing with them on stage, ANYWHERE, I’d be terrified. I have horrible stage fright… that whole shaking-in-my-shoes-and-want-to-throw-up business. But, Sarah! People say you sing really well! Yeah, I know. Singing in front of people, even my closest friends while playing a game and being tasked with singing the national anthem, had me quivering with anxiety and fear of fucking up… not to mention outright rejection, condemnation and comments of how awful I did. I rushed through the anthem, seated and my voice quavering, as fast as I possibly could just to get it over with.
When I’m by myself… in the car, my own personal boombox… I’m awesome.
Please enjoy the music and… How about you?
That’s a hard one since i love so many different performers. I not big on being in the spotlight either…ugh But if we’re dreaming here I know the venue would be Wembley stadium in London, singing Mn on the Moon with R.E.M……yes, I have butterflies.
That’s a great song! What’s funny, and maybe I should have added it to my original post, is that I’m FINE being in front of a crowd and speaking/MCing events…. only singing causes me such paralysis.
wow! a Halestom & Grace Potter fan! I don’t know how I got here, but i’m so happy 😀
Rock on, my friend, rock on! \m/
