J.O.A #1

Today I launched this blog... a project I've been working on for 6 months.  I was incredibly nervous to put it out in the open, but the response so far has been astounding to me.  More importantly, I am really proud of the work that I and my team put in.  Countless hours of adjusting the smallest of things are now able to be viewed around the world! Pretty neat.

Today I sang through my first song all the way through without stopping.  In my voice therapy, my teacher Dr. Latour brought in an accompanist for the first time. Before 2 weeks ago, I couldn't even sing more than a few words without completely cracking. I had only been able to sing vowels.  Today, I sang through "Young and Beautiful" from BAZ and completed the song.  It wasn't perfect...I had some problem notes.  But I finished it. When I finished, I looked up and said, "that's the first time in almost a year I've been able to sing that song." My teacher and I looked at each other and started to cry. She walked over to me and gave me a huge hug.  My work is slowly starting to pay off. That is pretty damn awesome.
