In discussing this with my wife, she suggested I go out into the public somewhere and sing, to help overcome anxiety. So about a week ago I turned to the internet; you guys. I made a video on YouTube asking for suggestions as to where I should go in public to practice my singing. The suggestions were varied. I plan to try all of them, but one in particular was time sensitive; sing at the mall on "Black Friday". Are you kidding me? Talk about jumping right into the fire!
So this Friday, November 26, 2010, I will spend the day in the food court at Northpark Mall in Davenport, Iowa. I have a set of six songs (20 minutes) that I will perform a total of seven times. i will sing at the top of the hour starting at noon, until 6:00 p.m. During the 40 minutes in between sets, I will scour the food court and as much of the mall as possible handing out flyers. These flyers will explain who I am, what I am doing, and will have my YouTube address so That people can see more videos there.
You have no idea how crazy this is! This is SO not me and I love it! I am having the time of my life during this journey. Hopefully lots of people will stop and watch, and check out my YouTube videos for more. So if you are a local and live in the Quad Cities, be sure to come out to the mall on Friday and see me sing at the top of the hour between noon and 6 p.m.!
