3. Feeling Alive with Being Alive
As Venture for America's training camp drew to a close, the leadership team put together a talent show for the Fellows.
I'd been longing for an excuse to sing again, so I put together this rendition of "Being Alive" from Sondheim's Company.
The song struck a chord that has only deepened as the pandemic stretches on.
Between the song's message (basically the Broadway musical equivalent of Queen's "Somebody to Love") and it being my first time singing for an audience in five years, this performance felt...heavy.
