Like a comet pulled from orbit...

Today I want to share a guilty pleasure. I found a book of music from the musical Wicked at the library and was playing through it just now. From the first time I heard the music from Wicked, it has always made me cry. Just playing through 'For Good' this morning made me tear up. The original witches, Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel, are so good and their friendship is so sweet. There is a video on youtube of Kristin's last performance and you can tell they both are so emotional. Anyway, if you've never seen Wicked, you should! The story is a fascinating insight into The Wizard of Oz, it has great, great music, it is HILARIOUS and makes you feel good to boot! And, if you don't have the option today to go to a broadway show, youtube is FULL of videos of various songs! Below is the song "For Good" that overlays some explanation of the show. It's neat. :)

We are singing For Good in OK City chorus. It is a very touching song. Someday I would like to see Wicked...
We saw wicked in NYC a few years ago but not with the original cast! You will have to play a song for us when you come over!!!!

Looking for something?
