248/365 Beautiful Dreamer

My fourth-grade teacher had her class put on a minstrel show every year. Yes, you read that right, blackface and all. We had to audition for a part. She suggested I sing Beautiful Dreamer, so in front of the entire class I tried my best to hit the notes. She told me that I sang terribly and to sit down.

  1. There should be some kind of screening for sadistic teachers.

    Ah, but Marilyn Horne . . . I hadn’t heard her voice in a long time. Lovely rendition, and that includes the accompaniment. Thanks!
