Have you seen this?

I saw this video for the first time this week... I think I've watched it 10 times since...and it's brought tears to my eyes everytime. I'm sure I'm one of the last people on earth to see it...but in case you haven't, here it is. I think it's beautiful.

And on a side note...I tried singing opera to Reese today while she was trying to go to sleep. And it worked like a charm! She's such a cultured baby.

I had seen that; and it made me cry, too! Isn't he amazing? I also saw a later one where he sang again and I think he won. I'll try to find it. Of course Reese loves opera! What were we thinking? I'll brush up on my "Carmen". Love ya'll...jojo

I saw him on Oprah yesterday, and he did go on to win the whole thing. Now, I want to see your hidden talent of singing opera!!!

I hadn't really watched him because I thought the competition was all about "Connie". Did you watch Connie? That will make you cry. Youtube the same competition and watch little Connie. Makes me cry everytime!

Love you!

I am so sorry I missed your performance. If it worked then you better keep practicing!

Such a cultured mommy! I'm pretty sure I don't know any opera...maybe I'll try Broadway Showtunes for Phoebe. It's funny because we sang that song for Sing Song one year (different words, of course), and it's the only opera I actually recognize. It's also played at the end of the movie "The Mirror Has Two Faces." Just thought you needed to know that bit of random trivia.

Jenna - I'm a lurker here at your blog, mainly because I think Reese is so adorable and you always post such great pictures of her. But I had not seen this video. And I'm so glad I have now. What an inspiration. I will probably come back and watch it again. Thank you for sharing it.

I didn't start crying until they started playing Aerosmith, "Don't wanna miss a thing." That song always gets me thinking about Armageddon, and then I just cry and cry and cry.
