Last night I sang backup for a friend's band. I've sung karaoke many nights. I've performed at most of my friends' weddings. But I've never gotten on stage with a full band in a bar for an actual set of songs.
I was scared.
It didn't help that the harmonies were really weird. Not straight forward thirds like the harmonies that wail in an Eagle's song. I had to really fight to find these.
That fact that I was shaking didn't help.
But after the first song, I shook a little less. And by the time I sang lead, I was ready. And it was good.
Yesterday, when fear was taking over, I kept reminding myself that it's good to do something I'm afraid of. And it was.
What have you been afraid to do? How did you feel when you did it?
