Phil Collins is a great singer and performer! So when my best friends daughter asked me to sing this song for her wedding, well, I felt a little overwhelmed to say the least!
Those of you that know me know that I love to sing. I've been singing my whole life.......that I can remember.
One time, when I was eight, I sang for my church's Wednesday night potluck service. You see, as tradition goes, when Methodists get together they do two things..........bring food and pass the offering plate! Make that three.......we SING! There I stood in front of hundreds of people singing my first solo, "Holy, Holy, Holy!"
Since then, I have been singing in our church choir, I sing in the Davenport Chordbusters Barbershop Chorus, I have sung in Barbershop Quartets, and I sang Lead in the Chords-R-Us Quartet for many years:
My quartet sang "The Lord's Prayer" for my son's, Lucky II, wedding. That was emotionally very difficult to keep from crying! I did make it through the anthem.......then I cried!
So I've sung in front of hundreds and thousands of people dozens of times at church meetings, church worship services, weddings, funerals, concerts, wedding proposals, Singing Valentines, anniversaries, and opening game National Anthems at the ball park. Why am I feeling overwhelmed? It's Phil Collins and it's my best friend's daughter. I was there at the hospital right after she was born and later at her baptism at church. She was at our house when we brought home our puppies:
I saw her get her first bible from St. John's United Methodist Church and witnessed her confirmation. She worked for me in her first job at Chick-fil-A of NorthPark Mall in Davenport, Iowa. Not that long ago, we celebrated Mandy and Matt's engagement:
Soon they will be graduating from college and getting married! And with God's help, I'll be singing in their wedding and everything will be fine.
Mandy, may you and Matt have a wonderful life together!
Thanks for the honor of singing for you on your special day!
