Usher is an awesome coach. He is so out of the box; he had one of his contestants, Michelle Chamuel, sing to herself in a mirror. She was decidedly not thrilled about this exercise. BUT, she did it so she could connect WITH HERSELF while singing a song that was one billion percent perfect for her. The song? "True Colors." She. Was. Awesome. She sparkled so brightly last night.
Last week I mentioned having the girls in my car rocking out to Adele's
"Rolling in the Deep." At one point, I popped open my glove compartment and handed Col a hairbrush. She knew exactly what to do with it. Her mic. She sang with an even greater enthusiasm than I thought was possible. I bet, like I did, and so many others did, she sang to herself in a mirror, hairbrush in hand, for hours on end as a little girl. All four of the girls in the car were sparkly. It was fantastic to witness.
TODAY, let's all be a little sparkly. Let's all shine on!
(much like a Grateful Dead live performance, this is 10:28)
