soprano

Pretty much every highschool choir
  • 1st soprano:*sings melody, complains about how hard it is and how high it is. Is unable to sing harmony at all*
  • 2nd soprano:*sings the same note like, the whole time*
  • Alto:*no matter how many there are, you can never hear them*
  • Tenor:*is like an alto but, you can hear them*
  • Bass:*is just in choir for the art credit*

OMG GUYS SAVE THIS VIDEO, IT’S PRECIOUS, SHE’S ONLY 17 HERE!!!!

Yum-Yum (Natasha Negovanlis) sings, “The Sun, Whose Rays Are All Ablaze”.

"We went to go see David in Gilbert and Sullivan’s "The Mikado", presented by Scarborough Music Theatre. I started taping this because I thought David was going to be in this number, but he wasn’t.

Now, realize this: this girl is only 17 YEARS OLD, and has the most accomplished voice in the entire cast. 17, people.

Yeah. It made me kinda wanna kick her in the throat too (but not really, so don’t go crazy people - it’s just jokes).”

LYRICS
======
The sun, whose rays
Are all ablaze 
With ever-living glory,
Does not deny
His majesty —
He scorns to tell a story!
He don’t exclaim,
"I blush for shame,
So kindly be indulgent.”
But, fierce and bold,
In fiery gold,
He glories all effulgent! 
I mean to rule the earth,
As he the sky —
We really know our worth,
The sun and I!
I mean to rule the earth,
As he the sky —
We really know our worth,
The sun and I!

Observe his flame,
That placid dame,
The moon’s Celestial Highness;
There’s not a trace
Upon her face
Of diffidence or shyness:
She borrows light
That, through the night,
Mankind may all acclaim her!
And, truth to tell,
She lights up well,
So I, for one, don’t blame her!

Ah, pray make no mistake,
We are not shy;
We’re very wide awake,
The moon and I!
Ah, pray make no mistake,
We are not shy;
We’re very wide awake,
The moon and I!

This brought me much joy today: operatic soprano Angela Brown covers “All About That Bass,” accompanied by the string trio Time for Three.
