Question of the Week #83

If you were helping to raise money for a charity and someone agreed to make a large contribution if you would perform at the upcoming fund-raising show, would you? If so, what would you like to perform? Assume the show would have an audience of about 1,000.

When I was a kid, maybe 2nd or 3rd grade, I was asked to perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” for a beginning of the school year teacher’s conference at the Roanoke Civic Center. It was in the auditorium where, I was told, there would be about 1,000 people in the seats. No sweat.

So yeah, I’d perform something. I’d probably offer to sing a song of some sort since that’s what I’d be most comfortable with. And, you know, since I’ve got the voice of an angel. Not sure of the song I’d do, though. Any requests?

  1. Depends on what they’d consider a large contribution. For $100, not likely. For $1,000.+, sure- and as long as I knew about it ahead of time and hopefully no one in the audience would know me(much easier performing for strangers.) Unfortunately, the only talent I have that might be worth seeing is clowning, but clowns haven’t really been a big hit with the public recently…

    If you have the voice of an angel, logical chice seems to be Angel of Music from Phantom. Too obvious?
