God wants no excuses, I have only one

Actually, I have a couple, but I've set a strict rule for myself against going into them. The purpose of this exercise is to throw stuff up on my LJ just as it was heard in public, flaws and all, and work on fixing said flaws for next time instead of stopping to explain them.

(With Magdalena nights, of course, it's also restaurant noise and all, and last night's crowd provided plenty of that. Just so you're aware, if you choose to click.)

Your Daddy's Son (mp3, 1.5 MB)

I did "My True Love" first but forgot to record it. Really should do that one of these days, as it's improved quite a bit since June.

Even with all the background noise, it's wonderful to hear you sing.

Gorgeous. Where's the song from?

Thanks! It's from Ragtime. Broke my heart all to pieces the first time I heard it (it's Audra McDonald on the OBCR; all my favorite songs of hers make me cry!), especially because I had forgotten from the novel that the baby was rescued and she's singing to him alive and well. (Well, the baby is. Sarah's a little broken.)

And then the middle "I buried my heart in the ground" section gets reprised in Coalhouse's big soliloquy number in Act II, after she's killed. Brian Stokes Mitchell. I am invariably a sobbing wreck.

Wow, you've got a very smooth break between full-on chest voice belt and your pretty soprano head voice! Bet that took work. :-)

Bet that took work.

Little bit. %-} Yay for it finally paying off... Thanks!
