Savannah the Singer




We could be looking at the 2018 winner of American Idol right here. My oldest daughter Savannah took the stage tonight in front of a huge audience at the Everett auditorium to belt out a few tunes. She did a great job and was quite the ham onstage. At the end of their songs she blew kisses to the audience over and over again. Pretty funny stuff.


It was a neat event, though it started off somewhat terrifying. The music teacher from Savannah's school in charge of the event took the stage, got on the microphone to begin the event by adamantly exclaiming SHHH! SHHH! SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! The following is my exact thought process when she did that....


"Whoa"


She followed the Shhing with "Fine, I'll just wait until you are ready to listen." There were at least 1,000 people in the auditorium. It was literally standing room only with hundreds of small children and she wanted it absolutely silent. I've got to be honest with you, it freaked me out. She shhh'd another 12-15 times when a man sitting next to Lea leaned over and said "I think we've just been scolded." It totally brought me back to my school days when being a bit rambunctious in the back of the class. I know it's hard to believe, but yes...I could get a bit distracted from time to time as a student. I can assure you that I was absolutely silent as the music teacher had the mic...OH! I almost forgot the best part. She gave the instructions, they sang a song and a child went to the microphone to speak. The music teacher took the microphone from him and said "Some of you were paying attention and behaved. Most of you did not pay attention and see that someone was walking towards the microphone." Whoa, I am freaking out again just thinking about it.


Anyway, Savannah did great, she had a great time and it was a proud moment for me to see her up on that stage singing her little heart out.


Have a great day!

If you could just let Savannah know that Uncle Peet would make an awesome groupie, I don't each much and always cheer loud! Plus I think sleeping on a bus is cool
