You’d never know it by listening to me at karaoke, but I was in middle school choir.
Choir was no-cut, and I had no idea how bad I was until I tried out for the show choir and the director, seizing the opportunity to eject a screecher from her award-losing, no-cut choir said this:
“Maybe you should try band or strings.”
So, I did. And the choral directors of Northeast Florida lived happily ever after. Karaoke emcees across the country, on the other hand……
Obviously a stark difference between my experience and that of the girls in Pitch Perfect (which looks like a fun movie for a musical-comedy loving freakshow like myself, even though I’m crazy jealous that I never got to go to regionals).
I may not have made the show choir cut and I may not be able to live life as a musical, but given a microphone in a dingy motel lounge down by the freeway, I’ll always belt out throaty, off-key songs because it makes me happy.
