unexpected music therapy filled the afternoons of yesterday and today. Accompanied my mom to catch MJ's This is It in the cinema. While I know MJ was good but i hadnt really listened to his music and goodness that few hours in the cinema was really therapeutic. It was really such a pity, the concert would have been the best of the best concerts if not for the tragedy. The music was awesome, the dance was mind-blowing. The dancers were all so awe-strikingly fantastic. Perfect moves and every move just oozes attitude. The musicians and vocalists are fantastic. And that girl guitarist really really rocks! MJ of cos needless to say was brilliant!
ok music therapy aside, it was also my 1st experience catching a movie in the Gold Class theatre. Goodness... the arm couches are soooooooo comfy. velvety and soft, and u can adjust the footrest as well and even recline if u want. aww... n there's blanket n the food menu. N N N the button on your TABLE (yes u hv a lil table for ur snacks n drinks, n no they're not served in those paper utensils) for u to press and call the waiter in, who will RUN to your service. man.. such a pampering experience.
And music therapy part 2 continues with this afternoon's LONG rehearsal for the intergenerational anglican centenary celebration service. Rehearsal was sooooo exhaustingly LONG. from 1.30pm till 6pm. man... it's almost like National Day. Ok God is definitely bigger than National Day. So anyway it's my first taste of singing in a choir and the verdict is: This is such a BACK and LEG BREAKING experience. oh gosh... standing for hours n singing repetitive stuff isn't that pleasant afterall. i think i very much prefer singing as vox w a band. aww... BUT all for God!! Ok now here's the music therapy part... the worship band was AWEEESOMEE!
Goodness listening to them the entire afternoon, I just can't stop marvelling at their brilliance. I really really love the main vocalist's voice!! He has that tone that I really really love. And he just sings n lead worship with such ease while playing the guitar as well! *envious and inspired* And the band!! Love that adrenaline-pumping rhythm from the drums, that emotional flow of melodies from the keyboard, the guitar riffs from the electric guitar and the soothing sound of the acoustic guitar!! Haix... it really fed my dream of one day becoming a vox in a band and MORE! It really fed my dream of aspiring to be a powerful worship leader in a band like Hillsong.
And I wonder if I will be able to find any venues to sing when I'm in US... would wanna still continue to sing, do gigs, and return stronger... wanna pick up hip hop...N when i return, everything would have changed as well. Argh... Please don't stop the music~~
