Do you have a sweet, secret dream that you keep to yourself? I have a bunch, but there was one in particular that I wanted to share. Tonight, I had the privilege of singing our national anthem at a local high school sporting events. There's nothing like it! I've mentioned it before here on this blog, but I'll say it again - if you haven't belted it out at an event like that, you should! It's electrifying! What an honor!
Prior to the event starting, they blared awesome 80s music. The song that really grabbed me was Europe's "The Final Countdown." In fact, take a moment to rock out with me...
Didn't you just love that?! Man, those hair bands of the 80s were something! The funny thing - I hated that music when I was younger. I was a Broadway buff, and I thought "heavy metal" was just noise. Now, I love it!
In watching the headbanging, guitar solos, and flashing colored lights, I was reminded of my dream of singing with a rock band like this one. When I was younger, I was absolutely certain that if I could just get close enough to one of the New Kids on the Block (yes, I realize a boy band is a far cry from a hair band), I could convince them to take me on as the sixth New Kid. Pretty sad, huh?
I've had lots of opportunity to perform onstage. I've appreciated each performance, and I've had a blast! But someday, I'd like to rock out with an awesome band. And that's just one of my sweet, secret dreams.
