We MADE IT!!! Just in the nick of time - we finished and submitted our video to NPR's Tiny Desk Contest. We had a such a great time making the video and I couldn't be more thrilled to be playing/singing with these amazing ladies. Hope you enjoy!

Week 26 - Stevie Wonder
It’s week 26 - we made it half way!!! To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are covering Stevie Wonder. This was definitely the most challenging song we covered so far. I never felt so uncoordinated in my life! Seriously doubted if I had any sense of rhythm at all. Then I remembered one of my old boyfriends who was undoubtedly the worst dancer I have ever seen. It was so bad that the dance floor used to clear as people just stared at him. He himself had no idea though - he loved music and dancing, and if he noticed people staring at him, he probably just thought people were admiring his dancing skill… And this song is about that the music is a universal language and we all have an equal opportunity to sing and dance. It’s an amazing song all around dedicated to Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and other jazz greats.
I’m just so grateful that musicians like Stevie Wonder exists!
Week 24 - Jo Stafford (1944). This song was requested by Bekah’s husband Evan’s grandmother, Tamar. Her husband Emil passed away some years ago but it seems like they had a wonderful life together. One can only hope that one’s relationship can be that strong and lasting.
This song was written by Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin and was featured in the musical Cover Girl starring Gene Kelly and Rita Hayworth.
As we near the half way mark on this year long project, we would like to thank our husbands for all their support. I’m telling you, it’s a lot to put up with ;) And do you see the brand new microphone? That was a gift from James. Thank you, James!
Wearing our favorite dresses found at a vintage store in Richmond, VA (thank you, miss Erika!) with the better sound quality, this just became my new favorite! Hope you enjoy it, too.
