Yes, it's true. Songbird has been watching Season Six of American Idol with my daughter, our first time dipping into this particular well of pop culture. In the spirit of believing you can do anything, as the auditioners so clearly do, please fill in the following five blanks.
1) If I could sing like anyone, it would be ________.
There are one voice in particular I would like to be able to sing like and she sings in the group I sing with on Thursday nights. And that is Heather - y'all don't know her, but she has one of the most beautiful voices I have heard. But to give a name that might be better known, I wouldn't mind being able to sing like Sarah Brightman
2) I would love to sing the song _________________.
Hmmmmm - Exsultate jubilate, K 165 (158a): Alleluia by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - if I could sing that and sing it well, then I would feel like I would be on top of the world! That ain't going to happen - so I will be content with hymns :)
3) It would be really cool to sing at ____________.
I think it would be cool to sing at the National Cathedral
- Nope, I just checked - I'm not in their line up of upcoming performances.
4) If I could sing
a dream duet it would be with with a dream group it would be ___________.
Changing this question --- I would like to sing with either Anonymous 4 or The Cambridge Singers
5) If I could sing on a TV or radio show, it would be __________________.
I have a feeling that Prairie Home Companion is going to have a lot of RGBP folks being singing wannabes on that program. So since there will be fierce competition there, I think I am going to say I would like to sing on the TV show Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. That would not be possible since Fred Rogers is no longer alive, but this is dreaming. I think it would be cool to sing on his show!
But, I am quite content singing with the group which I sing with every Thursday night :)
