This is my kind of homework.
I had to bribe him to sing for the camera and there was a brief interruption when he forgot his place. It was worth the pause, and the cookie. He sang for me when he got home from school. He shared a Spanish song that he is singing for the school winter concert and I was literally knocked over by his voice. I know he’s musically inclined, but I always figured he’d rock a guitar or bang a drum. Lead vocalist was The Girl’s job. I might have missed the mark on that one. You be the judge-Paula, not Simon. (Oh and try to ignore The Baby stealing someone’s snack at the beginning. The screeching is short lived-promise.)

oh crk, how do you let him out of your sight. he is brilliant. they all are. simon would have nothing bad to say about him, just so you know…perfect pitch and a genuine ear for the melody. i'm in love.
AMAZING!! i'm watching it over & over again!! please make sure he knows that he'll need to perform this a few times for all the aunts over Christmas!! =)
also– has kevin made any comments yet about the dreams he always had of sitting in his "cocky/billy crocker" seat in the gonzaga theater and watching his boy perform? the "why did we move away from MD?" questions are sure to follow… brace yourself =) xoxo, tia

Wow you are right, lead vocalist he may be some day. He can sing! He warmed right up to the camera and I love F’s commentary throughout the song. Maybe they can become a duo….:)
Aunt Julie says
Lead vocalist it is!! And do we have a little "Rachel" in the making here – not real sure how to deal with her role as backup singer?:) Wish I could see the real concert in person.
