Their Ward had a Talents and Hobbies Activity and Breakfast a few weeks ago. People signed up to share a talent or bring a display of their hobbies. They enjoyed a morning with a pancake breakfast and leisurely touring the displays, then came the talent show. The Primary children sang as a group, and then came some solo acts, and for the finale, the Youth were to do a lip sync to "Let It Go" from "Frozen." Each teenager had a silvery scarf bracelet to wave during the chorus of the song. (The leaders had actually prepared more elaborate costumes, but the Youth refused to wear the other pieces.)
As fun as seeing all of the displays and enjoying the breakfast was, Megan's little impromptu performance became the talk of the Ward. My daughter was at first mortified that her little girl got onstage without her knowing about it, but what mother could not be proud when everyone congratulated her about how darling her little show-stealing daughter was?
I am so pleased that there are songs out there that capture the imagination of children and give them confidence to soar to new heights. I just hope that teachers and parents will take the challenge to give those children some training so they can sing on pitch! I have already heard too many out-of tune renditions of this song. I think that is what amazed the people in my daughter's ward so much. Megan, at 3 years old, has a wonderful sense of pitch! This is a proud grandmother talking! You keep singing, Megan!
