The last song, also becoming a bit of a signature piece for me, was “Time To Say Goodbye,” I love ending my sets with this songs, as the crowd always seems to love it, and I love singing the long, high note at the end.
As well as practising every day, I picked out a nice dress to wear, and also designed this poster. I like the pink music notes. What about you?
We arrived where the celebrations were in full swing. There were stalls selling candy floss, ice cream, crepes, and lots of other yummy treats; there was a big area full of tables and chairs, where lots of people were sat, chatting and snacking, and at the far end was the stage, in front of another seating area.
We made our way through the crowd and met up with the organiser and the sound man, before I quickly made my way upstairs to do some extra vocal warm ups. After that, it was time to sing.
I stepped onto the stage, and launched into my first song “Pie Jesu;” Mum said that when I started singing, everyone stopped what they were doing and just stared. I didn't notice anything, because I was focusing on the beauty of the song, but I did get a great big clap at the end. I then sang “Music and Me,” and then “O Mio Babbino Caro,” which the audience seemed to really like. Next came “Moon River,” which was definitely a crowd favourite; I could see a little group of elderly ladies singing along, which was so sweet. I could also see a little girl, who had been running around and playing, stop in front of the stage, watching me. It was so cute.
I finished my set with “Time to Say Goodbye,” naturally, which was another crowd pleaser; a lot of people looked like they were enjoying this one. The little girl was dancing and spinning around as I sang; it was adorable. I got a big cheer when I finished, and I thanked them for listening, and went over to where Mum was. She said that it was the best that I had ever sang, but she always says that; it's what Mums' do!
A man came up to me and congratulated me, saying that “Time To Say Goodbye” had made him cry. It makes me sad when people cry, but Mum and Dad tell me it's a good thing, as they were obviously so moved by the performance. I try to look at it like that, and not as a bad thing.
We hung around for a while, chatting to people, and Mum got me some candy floss, yum, before heading back home.
I have uploaded a little montage of my set for you all, which you can view below, and we have also added some pictures into the gallery. I hope you enjoy watching.
Until next time,
