Sing, Sing, Sing

December 20, 2009

Some of you have mentioned that you’d like to hear me sing, so to make that happen I wrangled my brother into recording this video with me. I find his expression hilarious throughout the entire thing. First of all, he is The Silent Man. Secondly, check out his overgrown mustache/weekend beard combo. And finally, you can tell by his eyes that he is super distracted. That might be because I made him do this during the fourth quarter of the Texans game, which was on mute right in front of us.

Anyway, this song is called “White Horse” and it’s by my favorite band, Over the Rhine. I don’t do it nearly as well as they do, but I sure enjoy singing it. The guitar is kind of soft, but we’re not exactly operating with top quality recording equipment here. If you like what you hear, please tell me so! If you don’t like it, please don’t tell me–I am a delicate flower.

Merry Christmas week!

    Just as sweet as when I first heard you sing (also with your brother on guitar) when you practiced for the Sweetheart Dinner. You are special.

    Yay!! Magic!! People who can sing like you are a little bit magical and I really believe that. So…did you just always know you could sing or did you suddenly figure it out one day? That is a serious question. Anyway, that was beautiful. Also…loving your sweater, where’s it from? :)

    From Lauren From Texas:

    BEAUTIFUL! You are so talented. David has some sweet guitar-playing skills… I love how he looks distracted most of the time. That’s how Michael looks when I make him do ANYTHING when there’s a game on. :) Anyway, you are gorgeous, your voice is lovely, and I love this song. So glad you posted! xo

    From Chelsea:

    Oh and let me also add that if my brother and I ever chose to make music and put it on my blog, everyone would quit reading my blog. I think it’s cool that yall can do this together.

    From David, The Rainmaker:

    Let the record show that the song trumped the Texans game; family first!

    And yes, Kathleen has an incredible voice. So natural. It’s truly a blessing to be able to play with her.

    From Stephany:

    Wow, you have a GREAT singing voice! I also love your brother’s distracted look and though it may be sad to admit, that’s usually how I look when watching a football game and people try to get me to do stuff for them. I don’t play around with my football watching. ;)

    Anyway, great job to both of you! So great!
