The girls had their vocal showcase this past weekend. I could not have been prouder!
They practiced and practiced. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous they wouldn’t remember their words.
Their vocal coach was so wonderful. He discussed with me what points I’d like for him to say about each of the girls when they were on stage. He wanted to make sure to say something non-twin related about Sierra. I found it very profound that he recognized that Sierra is often overlooked as being “just Sierra” and not “Sienna’s twin.”
Sienna often gets so much attention because she’s so cute and she’s certainly one-of-a-kind. So, Sierra sometimes feels like she’s over looked.
We watched the first half of the vocal showcase and were entertained by the amazingly talented students.
Intermission. The girls were up next!
Sienna confidently sashayed on stage. She was so excited to be wearing high heels!
She answered her vocal coach’s questions and blushed as he sang her praises. He introduced her song and started playing. It was the moment of truth. Would she remember her words?
She did! She did great!! Her voice cracked a bit during a couple parts, but she just kept going without missing a beat! Of course, the crowd was thoroughly amused and thought she was so cute.
Then it was Sierra’s turn. It was amusing for me to hear people behind us say, “That’s the twin?” They couldn’t believe the height difference.
Sierra glowed as her vocal coach introduced her. He asked her a few questions to which she had answers that made the audience chuckle. He asked one question in particular that had the audience clap in approval. He asked her if she’s ever nervous when she’s on TV. She said, “No, people either like me or they don’t.” Proud Mama Moment! J
As she began to sing, the audience fell silent. She nailed her words and nailed the notes. The audience was moved.
After Sierra’s solo, they had the opportunity to sing a song written specifically for them by Marla Martin, a college friend of mine.
Side-by-side, the girls sang the song “Sinny-Sized”. It’s such a cute and touching song about the girls being able to take life head-on as an unstoppable duo. The audience was in tears!
It was an unforgettable night for the girls. They felt special and they were able to entertain and touch people’s hearts.
