The performance was a big hit and I recorded it on my phone, but we decided to record it again at home because some of the harmonies were off.
So to those who heard this, here's a better version and to those who hear it for the first time, enjoy.
Side note: Originally this was going to be a duet for James and Jordan, but with Jordan's voice changing and a nice dose of chest cold he couldn't hit the high notes. Last night we were rehearsing and I was acting like a freaked out pageant mom. It was frustrating for everyone. This morning I decided to involve Jared and give Jordan a harmony to sing that was easier for him. We started this at about 3:30 this afternoon and performed it at 8:00pm. I had hoped Jackson would participate too (during our quick rehearsal this evening he played the part of the finger-snapping metronome), but in the end he decided to stay out of it.
Can I just say that I am so pleased with these guys and they really are smart, forward thinking boys. When they argued that they didn't want to perform in front of the "old people" - because this was not a crowd of peers - I just said, "Maybe so, but those "old people" have daughters and grand daughters....."
