Wanna Hear A Dorky Girl Sing About Popularity?

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, October 03, 2011


Hey Friends!

So, I know that this whole sing-in-front-of-your-computer is more of a YouTube thang, but since a few of you requested I share my renditions from my performance Sunday night, Oct. 2nd, at the Mrs. International Pageant, I thought I'd post. (May as well, right? I share everything else here!) emoticon

This is my pre-performance rehearsal run-through for myself, so I could hear my sound, and see my goofy face before heading to the pageant. [My apologies for the HORRIBLE sound quality and blasting out of the speakers. Yikes.] I sang three songs last night as the entertainment portions of the production, all from the musical "Wicked."

Here, I am singing the song "Popular," sung by Glinda, the "Good Witch." The other two songs I sang were Elpheba's songs: "I'm Not That Girl" and "Defying Gravity." I have both of these recorded on my computer as well.

I do not have a performance recording from the evening, as video cameras were not allowed, and I'm not going to buy the DVD from the night for $15 (ummm no).

So, enjoy! (Or not.) This is me being exceedingly dorky in singer-mode. emoticon

Also, here is a pic of me from last night, with my biggest (or maybe tied-for-biggest) fan: my grandma!! She and Paul were the only ones who came to hear me last night, and I am soooo grateful they did. It was wonderful to have them in the audience to support me.


Do you want me to post another song??? Or is that too weird here on Spark? (LOL)
-Whit

    You could be Mrs. International after living a semester abroad in Europe. What a great experience for you! It changes you forever...you must be talented to be asked to perform at a pageant. Love your song choices...

    Charming rendition of this song Whit!! As an "audience" member, I enjoyed your animated facial expressions, hand movements, lovely voice and engaging smile. You certainly have a gifted voice and you use it well! How wonderful that your grandma was able to support you as well. Gotta love those g'ma's!! Hope the competition went well for you!

Joy!
Julia : )

    You are a beautiful singer, and you sound classically trained. (By that I mean the vibrato in your voice, your pitch, tone, etc). And no this is not coming from a singer. Just someone who has played the piano for years ;) Well I for one would welcome more singing videos! Beautiful!

    Whitney, you never cease to amaze us!

Please sing us some more songs! I agree with the comment suggesting you go on American Idol - based on the performance practice you have shared with us you would have to go to the finals.

I particularly liked the use of your eyes to add feeling to the song. I think the judges would be totally blown away with your talent.

Whatever the maximum votes that an individual can send in, you would get them from this fan!

PS: I totally DISAGREE with the designation "Dorky".

    I wish you lived in the Boston area! I have a friend with a respected opera company, and he would LOVE you, especially because not only do you have great talent, but you're young and pretty, too, and that's not an easy combination to find!

    I love it! You have such an amazing voice...listening to you makes me wish I had kept up with my flute playing over the years. It's nice to have a talent and cultivate it...helps with finding your worth in something other than the number on the scale, KWIM? I'd love to hear the other songs you sang, especially "Defying Gravity!"
