November was full of plays! Laura was Betty in The Crucible at the Echo. She did a fantastic job with a difficult role.
Laura (my 12 yr old) sang with One Voice Children's Choir at the Interfaith Christmas Concerts. After rehearsing her solo with the choir in the green room, she stepped out in the hallway. Kevin (yes, the incredibly talented and very successful member of Pentatonix) stopped her to compliment her on her singing. But, his kindness and wonderful influence continued as he gave her his time and chatted with her for 5 minutes about her music. At the final show he turned around onstage and remembered her again. These few moments not only solidified her love for music, but also her quest to be a good person. I was already a huge fan of Kevin's music, but now I am even a bigger fan of him as a human being. Thank you for teaching her that being talented is important, but it's even more important to be a kind and uplifting person!
