Of the many good childhood memories that one may have, watching The Sound of Music with my family when I was young, happens to be among them. It was a special time (typically summers with my cousins) and an Aunt who was just as interested in music and art. She teaches kindergarten.
For those of us not destined for the stage, singing is still a vital and enjoyable part of our lives. So, thank goodness for outlets such as karaoke to switch things up from all those solos in the shower.
Another joy about singing and in particular songs like Do-Re-Mi is introducing them for the first time to children. I can’t say with absolute certainty if they care or even notice when I’m off-key or that I tend to hold a note longer than necessary, but nonetheless it’s entertaining for us all (I hope!)
So, when NBC aired their live version back in 2013, I was over the moon and this collaboration of Do-Re-Mi in particular has kept our momentum going.
Especially when you know the notes to sing…
