Getting over fear

When I was young I sang in children’s choir and did some solos in front of hundreds of people.  As I got older I developed stage fright…really, really bad stage fright.  I can’t sing in front of anyone except my children now.  So I decided to try to get over this fear.  And I’m starting really, really slowly…I posted a song or two that I sang on this blog figuring if I could stand putting my voice on my blog and survive the criticism, then maybe some day I could take it a step farther.  To that end, here’s another song.  “On My Own” from Les Miserables.

  1. I can hear a good bit of shyness and hesitation, but you bring your heart into it near the end! I’m so proud of you for doing this. I’m very similar – been told I have a good voice but shit myself at the idea of doing it publicly!

    But I have, twice, recently… Not well but that’s not what counts, is it? It’s the doing it, finally!

    Love it, thank you!

    Thank you, that was nice of you to say. And kudos to you for singing publicly! Where was it? What did you sing (if you don’t mind my asking)?
