Dear All: I hope you enjoy this. This is the first time I have sung in public. I remembered this song from my early 60's youth. I got it on Itunes about a year ago and started singing along with it and thought, hey, I sound all right! When the unsurpassable Lonnie Lazar did a "Lonnie cam" song for Epriddy I got it in my head that I wanted to do the same thing for all of you, and my non OS friends as well. I just didn't know how I would do it.
Then about 2 months ago my friends Dhyanis and Aruna announced that they would have an 5 year anniversary show on Feb 2 at their dance studio, World Dance Fitness in San Anselmo, CA and invited auditions. So I went and auditioned. My feeling was that I wanted a heart felt rendition (to show all how much I really really care!) but Dhyanis told me that if I was going to just stand there wringing my hands it wouldn't work. They both like cabaret burlesque types of performances so I needed to comedy it up. I had a lot of trouble with that because of my mind set. Aruna suggested some sort of head piece. So I got a star garland and fashioned it into a crown of sorts, a wacky one to be sure. Once I put it on it I got the internal permission to go ahead with the comedy aspect. A star was born. Dhyanis gave me a brief lesson on the pole, see if you can tell!!
