Oct. 5th 2007 Genghis Cohen gig with Andrea Stolpe and Mike Shmidt
Thank goodness I got through my gig yesterday.
With a cold and all, I was feeling worried that my voice
would sound horrible, and that I would let down the people
who'd come to see me.
What was worse, I found out that a Music Connection reviewer was
going to be present to review our show and I feared that my cold
would cause the reviewer to give us a less than stellar review.
But thank goodness everything worked out o.k
The first few songs I sang were rough, but after sucking
on a lozenge, my throat felt better and it became a little
easier to sing and emote.
Quite a number of people came. Ryan from EBCLA and Talin, who'd
heard me on Pandora Radio, and some people from Singapore who
were in L.A for a holiday.
I was happy that Clinton and Darlene were there too. It was sweet
of them to come. I especially appreciated it because I was
feeling bad about being sick, and just knowing that there
were people supporting me, helped me out :)
And Kavin sweetly gave me a 'well done' hug. Awww....
We hung out later at Wokcano to have some sushi with Andrea, Jan,
Clinton and Darlene and Clinton mentioned that it took courage to put my weaknesses
out there for all to see. That affirmation from him truly gave me comfort.
Thank you Lord, for blessing me with friends who remind me
of your love and of your gifts to me.
Postscript : The music connection magazine review has been published and it's a lovely review. yay :)
