Dear Beyonce,

Sorry to get a gushy but I think you’re divine. I mean, really? Your voice gives me the chills, you seem like a very nice woman and you are beyond gorgeous.

This “lip-syncing” controversy is really stupid.

Anderson Cooper did a fabulous segment on Anderson Cooper 360 last night that not only made me smile, I actually talked to the TV like he and his viewers could hear me. “As far as I’m concerned, it is Beyonce’s world and we are just living in it.” “Francis Scott Key himself would send her a fruit basket.”

“Talk to me after you’ve gotten on a stage in of the President of the United States (just Ralph Wilson, the owner of the Buffalo Bill)   hundreds of thousands of people (75,000 here) to sing the National Anthem in 40 degree weather (20 degrees here). Until then that particular bomb is bursting in air on the RidicuList.”

A. It was her beautiful voice.

B. She was singing her heart out, even if the mic was dead. You cannot fake that throat movement without actually making the sound. I “sang” the US and Canadian National Anthems at the Rogers Centre in Toronto years ago to my own taped voice. The game presentation folks would not leave the many perils of singing live to chance. Did I sing at Skydome? You betcha. Did people hear my voice singing the anthems? You betcha again.

C. Why leave the conditions to chance? Would you prefer the exceedingly talented Christina Aguilera’s FAIL at the 2011 Super Bowl?

Beyonce – you could sing the phone book and I would listen forever.

Your friend,

Jude

Lewiston Getting Jazzy This Weekend!

20120821-081527.jpgMost people go to the Lewiston Jazz Festival for the music and I’m here to say “Me, too!”

20120821-081430.jpgI am also going for the food. The next few days I will give you my Jude The Foodie take on a way to plan your culinary experience along with your listening pleasure.

20120821-082717.jpgI have the honor of singing to honor Canada and the United States of America before the headliner, Diane Schuur, who sings on the main stage at 8:00 pm. She is a Grammy winner and I hope I get to meet her…how cool! Check out the Historic Lewiston Jazz Festival website for many more details.

20120821-082330.jpgMeanwhile, since this is my own blog, allow me to do some shameless self promotion. I along with my talented singing partner Loretta Frankovitch and fast fingered accompanist Claudia Andres will be performing at the Orange Cat Coffee Company at 1:00 pm on Saturday, August 25, 2012

 

20120821-082539.jpgIf I could sing while I cook and make a fine living I’d quite my delightful day job before you can say Accidental Jazz!
