Well my knees were a bit shaky but I survived Karaoke night!  Despite my nerves, In wound up having a LOT of fun.  My friend got a group of us together to celebrate her birthday and it was a blast.

Back to my performance anxiety for a minute...I have zero confidence in my singing ability.  Isn't that strange for someone who makes a living with her voice?  I feel good about TALKING into a microphone. But I'm scared to SING into one.  I'm sharing this because what I learned last night is...you don't have to sound like Mariah or Celine or Josh.  At least if you're among friends.  So I grabbed the mic, channeled my inner rock star, waved my arms and danced around a little, and nobody booed or  threw rotten tomatoes at me.  Whew!  They were actually happy that I faced my fear and did Karaoke night was way more fun because I said YES and participated.
