Live streaming from my living room is challenging. First off – let’s all get on the same page – when I am performing I am generally looking at the BACK of my devices – not the screen, because if they were forward facing all the text would be backwards. Second, I am performing for a wall generally. Unless I’m lucky and Teddy sits in a show and he is laughing and dancing along. That had been a pure joy.
So we are experimenting with ways to make the show more human. Ways to make it more live. I love singing Happy Birthday shout outs to kids. If your party was cancelled for your child I would be more than happy to sing directly to your kids over the live stream. I’ll even record a video for you. This is a time for kindness, whatever you guys need send me a message and I will make it happen.
Reach Out and Read Greater New York asked me to write a song about their organization. BOOM! Done. I sang it three times yesterday on the live stream and it might become a regular part of the set. I want to promote amazing organizations. I want to keep the kids learning. We need to make incredible learning opportunities and life experiences happen during these times for the kids.
