Our band (more on them later!) noticed I have a little bit of a flair for the dramatic (also, more on that later!) and as momentum built over the course of the night, they pulled me onstage to bring the energy levels to a crescendo. The crowd pulsed with anticipation. The opening bars pounded through the speakers. Oh, I WILL survive!
I took my role seriously. I brought it (just doesn't have the same emphasis in the past tense), then I gave a little more! I grabbed hold of the mic like the rock star I know I am. I channeled every bit of soul in my body. I lived my American Dream fantasies.
