Here & Now


A couple of you guys asked to hear me play and sing the song I've been working on...so I'm going to share it on here. This is the first time anyone but my husband has heard it. He could play and sing it so much better than I do, but oh well!

However, I give you full warning - this is me exhausted, my voice is tired, I'm not singing right, I slip in and out of head voice and I messed up on the piano parts. It's a work in progress. If you are a music nerd, please don't tear me to shreds! I am an amateur song-writter at best!

I had a better take, but someone walked in on me. Can you say awkward? Let me tell you, it was weird. After that I was too tired to give it another go. So here is the very imperfect first take:





I'm not sure why the video isn't matching up with the audio...working on that. If any one is an expert on uploading youtube videos from PhotoBooth, let me know what I'm doing wrong!

seriously jennifer, that was amazing. your voice is awesome, and your song was glorifying and so worship-filled (does that make sense) Like i sat here and it drew me to worship.

My Beautiful Life said...

Beautiful voice. Ditto to what everyone else said.

Don't know if you've ever wondered, like Joseph, (in Egypt) when your time will come, and what trials/testings are that will get you to that defining hour.
From your preview demo song- I'm sure God has amazing things in store for you, and hubs.

Tired voice, shmired voice! It sounds great.

I definitely miss the thin walls in our old place, to hear singing. Other than that, I don't miss them.

I hope you are well. Continue to sing to the Savior!
