Day 269: Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

Tonight I decided to watch the new season of “The Voice” on NBC, which was awesome, but it was followed by a new show called “SMASH.” This show is about a bunch of people who come together to create a musical about Marilyn Monroe and I have to tell you, I was inspired! I realized that sometimes I don’t sing at my full power because I’m afraid of going for it and screwing up, so I decided I was going to just belt something! I pulled out “The Best of Broadway” song book and decided upon “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’” from the musical Oklahoma! This may seem like a strange choice considering I was just watching a show about a new, sexy musical, but I really wanted to go old school with this one and back to one of the old, cheerful musicals!

So I just recorded myself singing a cappella on my iPad first, then I added the guitar part in afterwards! Quick and easy, but I really feel like I was pushing!

Oh, What A Beautiful Morning’

You know, the more songs I do, the more I really think my voice fits the musical style versus something more poppy or rock and roll. At least that’s how it is right now. I need to work on using the same power I use when singing musicals and translating it to the other styles…. just something to think about!

If you haven’t seen “The Voice” or “SMASH” you totally should! I was really inspired by both shows, and I think you will be too!
