Since I’ve been going through withdrawals from Hawaii, I figured I would live vicariously through myself and go down memory lane! And this is where I’m posting the full rehearsal video of the “Diva Song” from Fifth Element that I performed. This corporate event at the beautiful Fairmont Orchid in Kona allowed me to visit Hawaii for the first time and I definitely can’t wait to be back!! The weather was beautiful and my only regret is not extending the trip for at least a month. Or years… It’s that amazing! I worked with the Mark Joseph Creative Development Group and Innovative Entertainment, as well as a team of incredible dancers and musicians, and even though there was a ton of rehearsal time, we managed to have a really fun trip. Don’t be fooled by the gorgeous picture of our pool at the waikoloa Beach Marriott. We really didn’t get to spend enough time together. But I’m on a mission to make it back as soon as possible!! Here are a few pictures from the crazy rehearsal and performing process:
Getting to wear the dress created for this event was an amazing experience. The mapping was beautiful and I am truly honored to have been part of this performance. And singing one of the most difficult songs I’ve ever had to perform while balancing that wig and holding up a giant skirt is probably one of my greatest accomplishments! Seriously, try singing the “Diva Song” from Fifth Element in that wig and get back to me… I really never know what I’m walking into with events but I think that’s one of the things I love most about pursuing music. It pushes me to be less of a control freak while still being as physically, mentally and vocally ready for any challenge. And getting to visit places I might not be able to if it weren’t for singing is also a perk…
And finally, here is the video of the dress rehearsal from the event. This is the “Diva Song” or “Il Dolce Suono” from Fifth Element. Enjoy!
