Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.--Victor Hugo

Last night our family went and saw the Broadway musical, "Annie". This play fits so perfectly with my blog site so I thought I'd write about it. I love broadways. I have to say "Phantom of the Opera" is my favorite musically, and "Les Miserables" is my favorite for individual solo music. "Annie" is now my favorite for children's music. I learned this past month that "Annie" has won every award that Broadway presents. Charming, witty, yet sorrowfully thought provoking, it was terrific. I cease to be amazed at the talent in children. The Annie character was not only phenomenal in her acting, but also in her singing. But also, her orphan girl friends were just as talented. Their voices were so crystal clear, precisely in tune, and blended astonishingly well with each other. Even their solo voices could have blended with another singer. It was incredible!
A little about this girl called "Annie": her given name is Amanda Balon. She is only 10 years old and has been performing since the age of 2. She won the Broadway award "Best Childstar in a Musical," and was named "Champion Performer of the World" in Hollywood,CA. Her credits include "Annie," "Christmas Carol," "Grinch," "Sound of Music," "Gypsy," "Mary Poppins," and "Cats Jr."
I do not promote professional acting, but I do promote professionalism. God deserves our very best.
