I tagged along with my friend today. From singing in the car, to his singing lesson, to his audition. All day, I was kind of tuning it out trying to study for my statistics exam. We went to the audition and he was pretty nervous. I can't say I really blame him. The song was somewhat difficult and singing in front of other people doesn't sound fun.
While he was practicing with the pianist, I was waiting with a younger girl and her mother. The girl was extremely nervous and her overconfident mother was trying to reassure her. When my friend started singing the girl's mouth dropped open and the mother exclaimed, "WOW, your friend is a good singer!" It was pretty cool! I'm proud of him. Sadly though, the girl became even more nervous and started crying.
