Last week I had the honor of singing at a good friend’s wedding down in Florida. It was an amazing experience and I am so grateful they wanted me to be a part of their special day. It was my first time singing and playing the ukulele in public. To say I was nervous would be an understatement. Performing in front of people alone is never something I have been comfortable with or had the guts to do. I have wanted to be a singer for as long as I can remember. That day, as my big performance was quickly approaching- it hit me: I AM a singer. Not just a shower or car singer anymore either. That day I was a wedding singer. I felt grounded, calm and more than ready. It was a feeling I didn’t expect, as I tend to be an anxious worrier, especially when it comes to stuff like this. It was the most amazing feeling in the world realizing that one of my life long dreams was coming true.
I have always loved singing . I have also always wanted to learn to play the ukulele. In September my dad gave me his ukulele and I immediately fell in love with it. Learning to play has been so calming and therapeutic for me. The first time I heard the song ‘Proof’ by Alex G it took my breath away. The lyrics, the message. It’s perfect. I knew I needed to learn how to play this song.
