Recording of Michael and Ron’s Wedding Cabaret


Michael and Ron’s Wedding, February 2011

This recording takes a little “digging.”  Go to:
http://ronandmichaelwedding.wordpress.com/

The audio of the Wedding Cabaret is about halfway down the page.

My entry (the song “Surprise Me” by the great Beckie Menzie and Cheri Coons) is listed this way:
Emily Everson – Gleichenhouse – Surprise Me
This song begins at (1:49:30) into the audio track.

I was very proud to be part of this event!  And, it was the thrill of a lifetime to sing with one of my idols, Beckie Menzie…and a song she wrote.  It was bliss!
