The Voice (Final Act)

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
The Voice, whom I at first was told was all in my head, but who ended up being very real and very talented, is about to move out and on. 

After being my neighbour for three and a half years, he has finally reached the final year of his opera studies at the University. Last night, I attended his final voice exam.

For him, a nerve-wracking affair in front of an audience, a panel of moderators and lecturers. For me, an opportunity to sit back and marvel at his talent.

He sang ten different, challenging arias in five different languages. It was incredible. He delivered a flawless performance. 

He is now off to conquer the world, but not with music just yet. He is, understandably, a bit exhausted after eating, drinking, and sleeping opera for four years. 

But he has made me a promise that, even though he is taking a break from music for a year, his singing voice will not be silenced for good. 

Until I see him somewhere on a stage again, I will miss him (and his voice) very much. 

(The next person who decides to move in will have a tough act to follow when it comes to singing in the shower! No pressure...)

is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
