Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Heart and Soul.  Terri Allen was saturated with Heart and Soul.  That is how she SANG sang and that is what she GAVE to everything she did and everyone she knew.

Terri Allen left this world on August 21, 2014.  I am going to miss her.

Terri supported and encouraged me.  She said nice things and gave me opportunities and pushed me to do more.

Terri Allen’s Videos for the 2010 United States Census

*
2010 United States Census, A New Portrait of America video:
Terri Allen worked with a team to produce this video.  The voice over artist is Terri and she wrote the lyrics of the beautiful song at the end (music by Todd Hahn):

This one, too: Another 2010 United States Census, A New Portrait of America video:

*
Addendum 8/25/2014
Maris, a wise mutual friend of Terri’s and mine, said of these videos, 
“The census videos are so beautiful…and it is a delight to hear Terri’s narrating voice. As always, she believes every word…”
It goes to how authentic Terri was.  Terri was the real deal.  She was never fake or untrue or dishonest.  She was 100% authentic.

DC Cabaret Network

*
Terri and I served together for many years on the board of the DC Cabaret Network.  She became its Executive Director.  She loved the DC Cabaret Network and worked very hard (and succeeded) to create a warm and inviting atmosphere to share and grow in song:

Lovely tribute from DC Cabaret Network to inform its members about Terri’s passing:

In Memory of Terri Allen

The DC Cabaret Network is heartbroken to share the news that Executive Director Terri Allen died unexpectedly on August 21.

Terri’s presence in Washington’s cabaret scene was unique and immeasurable. Her artistry, passion, and dedication encouraged countless singers to step up to a microphone and bare their souls through music. Her love for music and singers had no bounds.

We are working with Terri’s family to organize a memorial service, which will be announced in a second email. The September 15 Open Mic at the Warehouse Theatre will be in her memory.

Terri will be missed greatly as an artist, leader, and friend.

2014 08 14 garden by epg 4 GOODBYE SUMMER 2

I wrote a poem (using my very best handwriting) at the beginning of second grade.
My mom framed it and put it up in my room and I still have it (thanks mom),

Goodbye, summer.
I had fun with you.
The sun was always shining,
And the sky was always blue.
Goodbye, summer.

That would have been 1976.  

It took me 38 years to write this teeny-tiny song, but it sure felt sweet to find this little tune today.

**********************
Random Thoughts:

  • One of my cabaret mentors is Lena Koutrakos.  Ms. Koutrakos wrote a song with the lyric, “I don’t need nothin’ that ain’t already mine.”  What a marvelous thing say, recognizing that we have, right within us, everything we need.  With this in mind, I was thinking about making an illustrated song sheet for GOODBYE SUMMER and started to plan the clip art and what it would look like when I glanced over and saw a beautiful picture my daughter had painted…it was exactly what I wanted and captures the song perfectly…I already had exactly what I needed.
  • When I think of this song, two people come to mind, my mom and my second grade teacher Mrs. Barnett.  Mrs. Barnett had the class write poems when we got to school that year.  I’m still amazed at my 2nd grade handwriting, which is much better than what I scrawl out these days!  My mom liked the printing and the poem so much that she had the sheet framed and it always hung in my room.

ADVICE, GOOD ADVICE
Illustrated songs that dole out a healthy helping of sound counsel
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2014/02/13/illustrated-songs-that-give-good-advice/

I was in my guitar lesson the other day and found myself spewing out all sorts of stream of consciousness and seeming non sequiturs…but this almost always happens.

It probably felt like a waste of the precious little time to my guitar teacher.  Ultimately it is embarrassing, since it is all so personal, but I can’t help it.  The songs and the making of music are all stories to me.  Every note, every word, every strum and chord MEANS something to me.  They all represent, remind, and inspire images, memories, and ideas…and I want to share those things, contribute to and interpret them, and make something new.

I know I should stick to the business at hand (the guitar playing), but I can’t help also feeling that the stories (images, memories and ideas) ARE the business at hand.  They are the fuel that drives everything.  If not for those, why bother to play the guitar, or sing, or act?  The playing of the right notes at the right time is the skill…but everything else (images, memories, ideas, and the need to share, contribute and interpret) is where the ART is.

I’m not saying I’m a good artist…but I’m saying that I try and that I WANT to be good.  And, in any case, I can’t really help myself…so I’ll just keep going (even if sometimes it is embarrassing)…

Info and Thinking about Singable Picture Books
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/resources-for-inspiration-and-information/

I had a marvelous time at the Gainsville Neighborhood Library in Haymarket, VA.  The sweet library is situated in a beautiful regional park and I was glad to have gotten there early so I could sit outside and smell the flowers a little.

We started out with just a few kids, but by the end, we filled the Children’s Section with kids and their caregivers.  I met some very nice people who I sincerely hope to see again!

Here’s what we sang, listed in alpha order:

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Words and Music by Johnny Marks
Published by World International Publishing Limited, Great Britain, 1989
ISBN #: 7235-8891-0
This is the only copy I’ve ever found of “Rudolph” the SONG.  All other Rudolphs I’ve found have been the original story book by Robert L. May (the story upon which the song is based).  It will be great fun to sing the song with the youngsters.  They are going to love it!

SINGABLE PICTURE BOOKS FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS AND INTERESTS
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/song-book-lists-for-all-occasions/

This week I got to visit with the classes of Ms. Morgan (K), Ms. Cogan (K), Ms. Anctil (K), Ms. Allen (2), Ms. Howard (2), Mr. Koppelman (2), Mr. Grasso (3), Ms. Coffman (3), and Ms. Strickland (3).

We sang mostly from request lists in these groups last week.  I love to bring in requests since it is evidence that the music is speaking to the hearts and minds of these young ones.  I hope they will KEEP THE MAGIC, remember these songs when they grow up and share them with the children yet to be.
