Up until about five years ago, the only time I had ever sung in public was my last year of high school.
I played Rizzo in Grease.

After the ex and I split, I tried something I had never done before.
And you know what? I LOVED it!
Don't get me wrong, standing up there, looking out at a crowd of expectant faces, knowing I have nowhere near a great voice, I was SCARED!
I'm not a singer. I'm a mom who likes to sing.
But I got up, did it, and had a GREAT time!
It's not something I do on a weekly basis. I don't haunt the local Karaoke bars.
But every few weeks, my partner in crime and I will head out to a spot where (usually) nobody knows us, and sing our little hearts out.
Nobody said we had to SOUND good!
We're not out to be the next Carrie Underwood & Shania.
The only goal we have for one of these Girls Night Out, is to have FUN!
And THAT is something we always manage to do ;-)
Give it a try some night!
The audience is there FOR the Karaoke ... it's OK if you suck!
Besides, you don't have to sound good to have fun with it.
