Anyone like the sound of a dying cow?

If you answered yes, then I invite you to come hear me lead Spanish worship at an event for the low income families in Lakeway. Yes, there are really poor people in Lakeway. Five trailer parks full actually. They are mostly Hispanic.

I mentioned a while back that my parents got ordained as Pastors, well they oversee the Hispanic Ministry at our church. There are only a handful of Spanish speaking members at our Church, mostly consisting of my immediate family. Our praise and worship team only sings in English.

We need worship in Spanish for this event, so my Mom volunteered me, my cousin and one of her Spanish speaking lady friends. Only to have my cousin back out last minute. The other lady sounds like an entire herd or dying cows. So this leaves just me. So I had to do what I didn't want to, I recruited my friend Carlos. Carlos is an amazing singer and Spanish speaker. However, there is a very particular reason why I didn't want him to be involved. Carlos lives with the boy who rejected me, Carlos is not one of the roommates that likes me, but I don't want to around the boy who rejected me anymore. I dread seeing him actually.

So of course we held practice at Carlos' house even though I suggested otherwise. I I didn't have a reason to object though, because I can't tell Carlos that I asked out his roommate, how embarrassing. I was hoping the boy who rejected me would just leave, but he didn't. He hung around (I will write about this in detail later) and when we said we were going to practice he volunteered to play guitar for us. I had a feeling he just wanted to point and laugh at me because rejecting me wasn't enough.

He was surprisingly nice. Turns out I'm not bad, and I'm actually singing lead in a couple of the songs. Or at least that's what they told me. I'm scared shit less. So if you'd like to come out to hear me sing or help out for a good cause, let me know. However, please read the following disclaimer:

Listen at your own risk. I will not be held responsible for any hearing damage or loss that may occur.
