It’s not like they aren’t all big but this is going to be another big weekend in this little town. On Saturday I have the honor of performing the marriage ceremony for my cousin Naida and her fiance Ray. Performing weddings makes me nervous. I have never figured that one out exactly. I have sung in front of a thousand people and barely batted an eye. I regularly perform funerals and they don’t bother me, but weddings cause me to break out in a cold sweat!
Naida has also asked me to sing for the lighting of the unity candle. I have chosen “There Is Love” By Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary fame. I haven’t performed this one in many years as I have mostly officiated the weddings I have attended . As I practiced this morning I realized I was going to need to change the key in order to accomodate the settling of my voice over the years…sad.
