Hi everyone!

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!
