I think I just knocked 'em dead.
I got a great response at the first karaoke (years 7 and 9 in the audience). My co-teachers are all telling me it was brilliant. The kids cheered when they heard my name announced, cheered throughout the song, and cheered like mad at the end.
I sang "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and I even managed (on pure adreniline, 'cause my voice is so shot right now) to hit the high note at the end--and hold it!!
I was literally shaking in my shoes the whole freakin' time, but it was also sooo much fun!!
I have one more performance to do, for years 8 and 10. I might just collapse when it's over. : P
