Now if you know me at all, you know my favorite song is "Push It" by Salt and Pepa. You also know that everywhere I go I tend to request this song and bust out in an overly embarrassing dance. (I want to take a moment to thank those of you that have experienced this and continue to be my friend...although I'm sure I'm a "your team" candidate every time.)One would think that at a more classy event like a wedding I could resist embarrassing myself and those around me...but you are wrong. These occasions actually feed my desire for this little song and dance. My friend Laura's wedding was no exception...after 6 hours in the car and a few cocktails let's just say I was itching to dance and sing.
At the reception I waited patiently for the band to play "Push It" but they just weren't doing it. So I headed up to the band and asked nicely for them to play my favorite song. That is when they delivered the terrible news that they don't sing that song. I was devastated but relentless... I begged, and was even willing to settle for them playing it on the stereo, but they didn't have that either. I was feeling quite defeated as I walked away until I heard the words that turned my whole night around. The lead singer said to me "we can play the beat, if you sing", I paused for a whole 2 seconds before hopping on stage and saying "what the heck...why not"
I thought I would start with a nice picture of all of us with the bride and groom.
I also felt the need to include of the "cause" of my fabulousness....shots!!
This is where I'm explaining that the microphone is too tall!!
Like any good friend would do, Kala joined me on stage.
Our performance just wouldn't have been complete without Kwisen :)
