March 25th - 8 pm - I'm Singing with the NYC Gay Men's Chorus!

Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, NYU
566 LaGuardia Place (at Washington Square South)
New York, NY 10012

March 25th, 2010 -- 8:00 pm!

I just got the great news that I will sing with the New York City Gay Men's Chorus during the Big Gay Idol portion of their Big Gay Sing 2 event! Hosted By Scott Nevins with Special Guest Star Petula Clark! The evening will be filled with songs by soloists and the entire Chorus in lovely harmony - but also included is what they call "Big Gay Idol" - and I'm one of the two final contestants!!!

This means that I get to sing at least once on March 25th. On that night, and in the first half of the show, I and fellow contestant Marsha Mercant will get to sing a portion of "Maybe This Time" from "Cabaret" the musical. Audience members then vote their favorite singer. The winner will get to sing the song in full during the second half of the evening, only this time with the full band and the ENTIRE NYC GAY MEN'S CHORUS AS BACKUP!

A different set of 4 singer-contestants will appear for the other scheduled evening, March 26th at 8pm, to sing "I Am What I Am" from "La Cage Aux Folles," if you are interested in the idea of the event but can't make it on Thursday!

Very exciting!

The YouTube for NYC Gay Men's Chorus has all of the contestants' submission videos - Mine is also found on my YouTube page:

Charles Beale - Artistic Director of NYCGMC -- described this two-night event is "giant Karaoke party to celebrate song!...this competition is intended to be fun." So I look forward to glamming it up, wearing my fake diamonds, perhaps a sparkly top, then singing my heart out for a bit, enjoy the talent and fun onstage...

...and then perhaps (crossed fingers) singing my soul out with a huge number of fantastically talented gay men singing behind me.

A girl can dream, right? Hope to see you there!
