A few months ago. I was asked to sing in the Memorial Service by one of his classmates. Initially, I wasn't even going to do anything because it's my husband's college, not mine. However, over the past few months, so many of his classmates have asked me to be there to represent him after his stroke. So, I relented and said, "Yes". Since that time in April, I have been practicing the song over and over again and trying not to forget the words and the intonation. You know, all that goes with performing.
The reason many of his Princeton classmates wanted me to sing is because 50 years ago, our all-girl R&B band, The Thornton Sisters, was the Number #1 band on campus for over a decade. I think they just want to reminisce and remember the "good 'ol days". I'm a wreck that I will mess up and not do a good job.
So, that is the reason why I am not focused right now. Tomorrow is the day!
