Renewed love for music
Ever since we went to see Les Miserables, Aaron and I have been kind of obsessed with the music. We've been familiar with it for so long, but seeing it again definitely rekindled our love for this musical, its message, and the amazing music. This is the 25th Anniversary for Les Mis so they did a big celebration in London in the Fall to kick off the tour. Aaron has had a lot of fun searching through YouTube videos and seeing clips from that performance. This Valjean Quartet is definitely the favorite. And Aaron has a new hero Alfie Boe -- check it out! Amazing, huh?! Four men, with that kind of talent, all singing at the same time -- WHOA! Alfie is "the key change guy" who definitely steals the show. His voice is just really nice to listen to. Wow! If you get a minute, see if you can't waste some time on YouTube and see some of the other clips from this show. Samantha Barks makes an awesome Eponine! On a side note, I got to sing with my lover yesterday in church. I just have to say how much I love that! I'm so lucky to have married a man that loves music as much as I do (if not more) and sings with me. It is definitely one of our favorite things to do together. I love you Aaron. Thanks for singing.
