Dear Music, I Love You

28 Dec

Every trimester my fellow students and I climb the stage of our local music school and perform a few songs. Last week, one of those songs was “Vivo Por Ella”, a Spanish adaptation of “Vivo Per Lei”, orginally sung by Andrea Bocelli and Marta Sánchez. The lyrics are particularly beautiful: it´s actually a declaration of love to music itself.

I find it very hard to perform live: it feels like all my insecurities automatically expand like self-inflating beach balls as soon as I set foot onto that stage. I get all fidgety, don´t know what to do with my hands, and when I hear the recordings afterwards I always think Oh My God, when will I ever be able to pronounce an decent A? (A non-Antwerp A, that is.) (Probably never.)

But that´s what practise is for, isn´t it?

Luckily music goes hand in hand with humour.

And I´m sure she loves us back.
