Hi All,

Happy Valentine's on Friday. 

I hope you all have something special planned.  Randy and I are going to the production at the Roxy. 

Thank you for all who gave me recordings of the contest songs.  The ones who didn't record, next week is your chance to do so, as this week was optional.  You have really grasped the new interp of the uptune quickly.  Thank you so much. 

The ballad is rather tricky thinking about breathing and building all at the same time.  I have to force myself to literally slow down on this one.  So against my personality ....to be slow that is.  I talk quickly,  I walk quickly and I work quickly......  So this is my homework.  Listening to some recordings so far I'd say work on more smooth delivery on the  uptune and supported endings on the ballad while doing something than just holding the notes out until you run out of breath.  Become a singing diva and extend those endings while thinking ahead to the next phrase.  Easier said than done right?
