Are We Putting Songs of Hope In The Next Generation

How many of you are a sing in the shower kinda person? If I sang in the shower the water would stop it's self. The bucket see's me and runs. My demon daughter can sing and to this wont sing for me probably do to all the time I made her sing the Anastasia song (cartoon movie).

There are people like this little girl in the article. I have so much respect for them. And wanted to share this story of one like this little girl. Let me set the sceen for you...

I got to take her to the auditions to American Idol (Christian Channel) she was going to try out. We dropped the two older kids with the “LOOSER” then we clicked the baby not even 2 months to the auditions. This mother of 3, newly divorced, elementary school teacher showed up in her minivan with music in hand.

We got there at 4/5 am, to be last in line out in the parking lot of a hotel. The line was long is an understatement. For the most part the crowd was nice everyone study'n their music... She just stood there talking and praying with other contestants. Making friends and laughing.

By 9 pm that night the baby and I are hanging in the lounge enjoying a bottle (well he was) she came down. “Ready?” huge smile on her face. Here I assume she didn't make the next cut, by the way she was finishing the 3rd round.

“No the next round is in an hour. I don't need to go I did what I wanted to do.” And with that we picked up the baby and left. I had to know what if it was not to get on the show did she want to do.

The answer is makes her one of the most inspirational women in my life. “See if I could do it.”

I love to hear her sing and she gets her kids singing. She inspires the students she teaches to sign, has a kerioke machine in her classroom.

This story made me think of that, who inspired this young woman to rock a Rolling Stones song?

As a teacher I made a student of mine sing me “Jeremiah was a bullfrog” when it was time for snack. “Ok but this is the last time!” wonder if he is singing?

Enjoy live and if you can sing it … Sing it Loud Sing it Proud. ~PrincessPurple

Jeremiah was a bullfrog

Was a good friend of mine

I never understood a single word he said

But I helped him a-drink his wine

And he always had some mighty fine wine

Singin'

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls now

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

If I were the king of the world

Tell you what I'd do

I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the war

Make sweet love to you

Sing it now

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

You know I love the ladies

Love to have my fun

I'm a high life flyer and a rainbow rider

A straight shootin' son-of-a-gun

I said a straight shootin' son-of-a-gun

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls

Joy to the world

Joy to you and me

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls now

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

I want to tell you

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

Joy to you and me

Joy to the world

All the boys and girls
