"Summertime" and what happens when you put me on a stage

Lovely music lovers, another video for you!  The church show was tonight- it was great fun, I spent the day convincing myself I was a fool, a hack, a menace with no talent (per usual), and had an absolute blast.  I even moved my hands, to stave off the numbness I always get in my extremities when I perform.  It worked!  I only lost feeling in two fingers on either hand :o)

So sorry for the quality of the video- ggrrrr.  We used the larger camera, and it recorded in a format not compatible with my movie editor, and was too large to upload to Vimeo by just TWO MB.  So Youtube it is, although it's not a great file format for their system.  The sound came through alright.  If I can figure a way to edit it down by 2 MB, I'll repost.

If it WAS clearer, you'd have seen that I wore actual make up tonight.  And earrings I haven't clipped on (yes, clips- I don't have holes punched through my head.  Heh.) since my wedding day.  And Aunt LoLo, I still have your blue skirt.  I don't think you can have it back, I love it so.  My lovely, lovely mother accompanied me tonight, which I was so grateful for.  We haven't performed together in a very, very long time- I enjoyed it immensely :)

Enjoy, lovely friends.

*edit- if you can only see a portion of the picture, please click over to YouTube to view.  Also, if you change the resolution to HD/the highest setting you'll get a clearer picture (if your computer can handle streaming an HD video.  Which mine can't :)

Beautiful! And I cracked up that you made a baby cry. :) You look and sound stunning.

Tell me, is ear-piercing against your religion?

Way to go! You were great!

So, I was watching it on your blog, and wondering why you only filmed the accompaniest, and then noticed everyone saying how beautiful you looked, and then I thought maybe I'm not seeing all of it, so I clicked on it and it took me to youtube, and suddenly I could see it much better.

What your sister said. *grin* Listening to you always makes me smile.

And of course we are loving the bathroom photos. At least in YOUR fashion shots we can see your head. Prepare yourself for my headless fashion show sometime next week. It? Will be as awesome as the bathroom shots. Heh.
