I'm Going to A-merry-ca

Eddie had a solo tonight in his 4th grade school musical, "Letters Tell the Tale: From Settlement to Revolution." He did so wonderfully! We couldn't be more proud!

Here's a video of his singing--you won't have to wait long, he's the very first singer. It's worth watching the whole video though (because it's short, for one), but also because it's funny to watch the three boys wrestle with the mic at the end of the performance.

The kids performed all kinds of musical numbers relating to the settlement and creation of our country. They even covered the uncomfortable chapter of slavery with admirable honesty. It was hilarious though, to see our lily white population of children singing "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen." Yeah, somebody stole their fruit roll-up... nobody knows their trouble!

Bravo Eddie! You did it again! Good job! This is just a preview of your solo career. Can I have your autograph? :)
We are so proud of you.

Eddie, you did a beautiful job! I wish your part was longer though! Some day when you are a rich famous singer, you can buy Grandma lots of prism & fairies & Nana lots of shopping carts!!

Wow what a beautiful voice Eddie has, so clear. I actually watched the whole piece and went back to hear him sing, Twice! Good job Eddie!

Madeline & Olivia loved it!!!! They heard it playing on the computer and ran in to find out who that was -- it was Eddie -- you've got four fans in Sterling!
