We were having some 3RD grade auditions for one of our musicals. Jada is a new student.
MR. BOWERS: Jada, do you want to audition?
JADA: I don't think so.
MUSIC TEACHER: Were you in choir at your old school?
MUSIC TEACHER: Well, you should audition.
JADA: No, I'm ok.
MR. BOWERS: Who do you live with?
JADA: My Auntie.
MR. BOWERS: What would she tell you to do if she were here--just sit there? Or, get up and audition?
JADA: Get up and audition.
MUSIC TEACHER: Well, then, let's go!
Jada came up and quietly sang for us.
MUSIC TEACHER: Jada, first of all, you hit every single note. Now go ahead and sing out and have confidence!
The next day, we got this letter from Jada:
I LIKE DRAMA AND MUSIC ROOM
Why I like Drama and Music room is because you get to sing and it's my favorite because I always sing and sometimes my aunt tell me to stop singing. I love plays. It's just that I’m very proud that I tried out for because a great man and a great woman said that I can do it and I believed in my self and I did so I know that I should try. YOU ARE GREAT PEOPLES!
