HC's Musical Christmas Card

    A few week's ago I realized a longtime dream and performed a one woman show called "A Little Bit of Everything" which brought together all the different kinds of music I perform/love/grew up with. For 'archival purposes' I had JR run my digital recorder on his table during the show and, while not perfect, it came out pretty well.

    At the risk of being presumptuous, a number of posters have asked me privately if I had any recordings and expressed some interest in hearing me sing (or at least sing something other than the anthem in a pub). For them, I offer my recording of "O Holy Night" - sung Canadian anthem style, first verse in the original French, last verse in English. I hope you enjoy it.

    And for Slappy - I'm working on having my version of "River" clipped out to post on Soundcloud as well. Thought you might be interested. :D

    As a totally objective observer, this was just one of HC's great moments in the cabaret.

    "River" was perfect and so was the song she dedicated to me. :)

    A wonderful night

    As I told you on Facebook, HC, this is just lovely. Your voice is simply marvelous. :)

    And I absolutely love this holiday song. Might be my favorite, along with "The First Noel." Oh, and "The Little Drummer Boy." :)

    OK, HC. So you can sing the easy ones like "O Holy Night." How about a more challenging number. Have you heard, "I Think You Might Like It"?

    It'll please you to know that I referenced Ludacris' "You'se a Ho" at my cabaret and said that the only reason I wasn't singing it was that my pianist couldn't play it. :D
