My Last Tuesday

December 10, 2011

December 6

I didn’t even make it to the studio for my last Tuesday at PA Live! today. I caught the “bug” that has been going around for a while. I was disappointed I couldn’t be at the show today because I got someone very special to come on the show.

We refer to each other as cousins, even though we technically aren’t even related. Her name is Alyssa Golden and she made a Christmas CD this year with Dave Baloga to benefit Saint Jude’s Parish in Mountaintop and KISS Theatre Company. I haven’t seen Alyssa in a while so I was really excited to see her today. Unfortunately because of my illness, I didn’t make it out of bed. However, I did watch the show and she did an excellent job. Alyssa and Dave sang “The Prayer” in the first segment. They both sounded absolutely stunning. I had chills when Alyssa was singing. She has such a beautiful voice. I could tell that Dave and Monica were really impressed.

In the second half of the show, Alyssa sang “A Baby Changes Everything.” This was also amazing. Monica said at the end of the segment, “She’s definitely coming back.” Alyssa is only 15 and a freshman at Crestwood High School. She competed recently in a singing competition at a Catholic Youth Conference. Because of her singing abilities, she got a record deal! We are all very proud of Alyssa and wish her the best.

This was a show that I wish I was there, but at least I was able to watch it on television. I made sure to text Alyssa and her mom after the show to tell them what a great job she did.
