wicked, the musical


I was asked to sing a duet of the song "For Good" from the musical "Wicked" in February. For you who are unaware, "Wicked" was written regarding the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz story, and how she became the way she is. The show has been running since 2003--boy am I behind the times just getting into it now! Anyway, I really enjoyed the chance to sing this song for our Enrichment night in February, although using the microphone was seriously nerve wracking as I'd never used one before.

Since then, I was given my own copy of the soundtrack and tracked down the script online so I could figure out what was going on other than the music. Man, it is amazing. I really hope it comes back to Phoenix soon so I can see it. So creative and the music is great.

This is not a great video, but it's a practice run of Christy H. and I singing this song back in February. It's not great, and if I daresay, we did better on the actual performance night.

PS: Christy didn't realize I was filming, so she does some funny actions.

PPS: I didn't realize my butt was so huge.

PPPS: Christy would have a heart attack if she knew this was on the internet. So be sure to tell her how awesome she sounded. Hee hee!

I am dying to see Wicked! If it ever comes back to Phoenix, we should get a big group of us together and go. Girl's night out! Not that I wouldn't love to take my husband, but I enjoy things so much more when I know the company I am in is enjoying it just as much as me. Rich is not really a musical lover. :-(

Your rendition of "For Good" was beautiful! It's such a great song! I'm sorry I missed it at Enrichment Night. I really wanted to come, but that was when Vivi had RSV.

Wicked is one of my FAVORITES!!! I got to see it at Gammage when it was here and let me just say... WOW!! There are some interesting twists that are NOT on the CD! VERY EXCITING!! :) As for this Video of yours.. BRAVO!!! You both harmonize so beautifully! I loved it! :) :) :) I wish I could've been there when you sang it live. :)
