April Reading Schedule:
Hello Again-Susanne Matthews Finally finished this!  Started off good, but could have cut out a lot of the middle (imho).  Enjoyed the ending, though I suspected that's how everything would be explained.  Some of it caught me by surprise.
The Gift of Forgiveness-Angela Raines Interesting read
Never Had A Chance-AR Good story
Christmas at Holiday Peak-Candace Havens Cute story!

Karaoke Songs:
Would I lie to you-Eurythimics Bleh...
Perform This Way-Weird Al DNH
Photograph-Ringo Starr Waaaayy too low, but I love this song!
Wouldn't it be nice-Beach Boys Bleh....blew most of the words
Because of You-Kelly Clarkson Did well!  Redemption for an otherwise 'off' night:)
Wrapped Around Your finger-Police Nailed it:)
Payphone-Maroon 5 Did well!
Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald-Gordon Lightfoot Wasn't too bad:)
Please Mr. Postman-Carpenters Slightly too low...not even sure I could be heard until the end??
Wrecking Ball-Miley Cyrus Did well:)
Make It Real-Jetts Nailed it!
Will You Be There In The Morning-Heart Slightly too low; think I could only be heard on the 2nd half of the verses, the bridge, and chorus.

4/6: Was too tired to attend
4/20: Easter Vigil
        Jesus Take The Wheel-Carrie Underwood Wasn't too bad; botched some of the timing on verse #2  Song was in my head all afternoon, and after I ran over the table and pretty much totaled my rental car, I knew WHY, so had to attempt to sing it again!
        Separate Ways-Journey Rocked this one, then left.
