hog the spotlight,
all the rage.
take a bow,
extend your roses
to passion’s thrall.
a useless trait
when bright accolades
of art demands
blood of heart and soul
The beautiful and talented Katie Flynn, featured in the YouTube clip above, needs a couple of backup singers for an upcoming gig. Katie, who resides in Illinois, and I are friends on Facebook, so when she posted the following:
I need 2 female back up singers who know how to shake it a bit. PM me if interested ASAP! 🎶💃🏻🎤
My first thought was, “Hey! I’m interested!” My second and third thoughts, in rapid succession were, “Shoot! I live in Florida,” and “I’m afraid to shake it a bit, lest it become a lot.”
Then I thought (my fourth of the night, and something of a record!) maybe I should put the word out there and help Katie find her backups.
One more thought, “Hell, who am I kidding? I can’t sing.”
If you know someone in central Illinois who can sing and can shake it a bit, let me know. I’ll connect you with Katie. In the meantime, I’m going to practice my singing and shaking.
