Musical Monday: A Duet with Myself

I have decided to give Musical Monday another try. I just downloaded a cool recording program tonight and had fun doing a couple of tracks. It's a bit rough, but I had a blast sitting in my bed singing!

The Friendly Beasts
is a Christmas song that many different artists have recorded, and I discovered it a couple of years ago. Last year we had our special ed kids hold up pictures of the animals as a recording played, and it was incredibly sweet. It is a new favorite of mine, and we are using it for our Christmas program again this year.

Sorry, you will need to click on the link below and download it. I am still trying to figure out an easier way to attach it here.


Kazzy's voice has been silenced by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act(see the details here). Sorry you can't listen to her sing directly. But send her a message and she'll try to work something out.

Click "ENJOY". :)

Ah. Got it now. Sorry I'm such a bonehead. Anyway...

I love the self duet. Your beautiful voice puts a lump in my throat every time. And your choice of songs is perfect.

Have I told you recently how proud I am that you are my friend?

Beautifully done! You should be the one singing it at our program. Is it possible to play this version instead of the other?

Spine-tingling! I hope you keep up with the musical mondays! Love it!

Absolutely beautiful!!

It must be a bit surreal to hear a duet of yourself. Beautiful. I hope you don't mind, I put it in my Christmas playlist.

How I wish you could pop into my music room today so you could sing as I played for you, just like old times! Wow, in harmony with yourself, AWESOME! Your voice is so calming and beautiful. That was a blast to check out your blog. I want to try to reach you later today. We definitely need to catch up.

Hi Karen: This is from Joy Safsten Hollingshaus---I saw a link to your blog from John Ferrin's blog--a blast from the past! Love your blog. I can't believe you have a 20 year old!! What an interesting place to serve a mission too. Hope all is going well for you and Gideon. I bought and read his book he wrote on adoption when it came out. Well done! Please tell him hi. Do any of your other roommies from Moon have blogs (Cindy etc.)?

Next week I will be recording with Juliana from True Confessions of a Mormon Mother. Thanks, everybody, for stopping by!

Kazzy, that was beautiful! You are so talented. I'm trying not to be intimidated, but the more I know you the more I am in awe of you.

I downloaded your "duet" and it's now in my iTunes library. I hope you don't mind.

This is so lovely! Penny used to perfect words "calming and beautiful" to describe your voice. It really is so soothing. I can't wait to hear your duet next week!
