Zach had played in the School Band since 6th grade, but this past year he decided that if he wanted to be a Music Pastor someday, that it would be better for him to take Choir instead of Band. And he made the Concert Choir. He loved it! They took trips and had all kinds of fun.
Well for next year, his Senior year, he's made Advanced Vocal Choir, which is the top choir of the school. So, he recently said to me "Mom, your gonna have to teach me how to dance this summer!" because Advanced vocal does choreography. My heart flipped in Joy!
So, last night after American Idol, they premiered a new T.V. show, that I believe is coming out in the fall. It's called Glee. I got all excited. I loved it! It's singing and dancing, and Broadway show tunes along side great rock songs! I mean can it get any better?
I taped it, and as soon as it was over, I yelled for Zach to come down stairs. (He couldn't hear me of course, because he was in his room playing guitar! But, we finally got him out.) I told him "you have to watch this show", he said "why?" and I said "Because it is you in Advanced Vocals next year!" So, I made him sit down and watch it right then!
He said "which one am I?" Hmmm. Let's see here, he hasn't played football since Jr. High, but he does run track. So he could be the Track star that can sing. Or he's really smart, so he could be the nerdy guy with the screaming guitar, since he does play in the Jazz Band as well! :)
I loved the music! They did a song from Le Miserables (only, the greatest Broadway musical of all time!) and Grease (you know I love that!) And they did a great old Journey song! (John down loaded it off iTunes already.) And of course they dance! Right up my ally.
And to top it all off, their was a character that I related too as well. The music director who is working his butt off just to make ends meet, and is passionate about music! (Sounds like someone else I know.) It was his wife who had the greatest line, when he tells her he has to start working late for the next couple of months, she says to him, "You know I work 4 hours a day, three days a week, and now you expect me to go home and make dinner for myself too?!" I literally LOLed! That is so me! Hey, I'm not proud of it, but at least I'm honest! (Yes, my husband spoils me!)
So, this looks like it could be a great show, unless of course they ruin it with all the junk they like to through into teens shows. But, I'm holding out Hope!
