My FLORA kick continues, and since its too hot to move (even though I NEED to go to Trader Joe's STAT), I have found a bunch of other people singing "Sing Happy" (though I still prefer Ms. Bilkenstaff's, especially when she goes up on "give me a hallelujah and get up and shout"--side note, I would LOVE to see her do NEXT TO NORMAL).
Amy Wolk--she's quite engaging, and doesn't indulge at the top, which I appreciate.
A nice "Manhattan Transfer-esque" (I'm sure these groups HATE being compared to Manhattan Transfer, just as puppeteers hate being compared to Julie Taymor) ensemble at Signature in VA.
Here's a tween known only as Maggie. You know, because of all that heartache and stuff. Her voice cracks around 2m40s. It's endearing.
Kiara Sasso, from a Rio de Janeiro production of "The World Goes 'Round", in what I presume to be Portugese
A boy! With a great name (Sterns Matthews). I love the tone of his voice, and he goes up on "give me a hallelujah and get up and shout"!!!
And a bootleg recording from a very, how shall i put this, enthusiastic and ardent fan on Eden Espinosa, from when Eden did it at reprise. I guess she started the whole, going up on "give me a hallelujah and get up and shout" thing. She also added some questionable-for-the-periord-but-it-doesn't-matter-because-it's-a-concert-and-we-all-know-theater-in-LA-is-fake-anyway riffing. The video itself--which is a still of the fan and Eden plus some commentary--is amazing in its own right. Warning, the sound quality is not that great.
If you've watched all of these, I'm most impressed. I really thought I'd only have 3 or maaaaaybe 4. And there are actually videos I watched and didn't post.
