Kaicia

One day I went to FHE and this girl in my ward (Julia) came into the room singing "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson, so naturally I start singing along (because I love that song) and started clapping at the chorus where it does in the song. She was so excited that I knew all the words and knew when to clap, and with the right rhythm, so she told me that I should join her band, they needed a clapper. I really thought she was joking. We ran into each other at a ward party soon after that and became instant friends, singing lots of songs together, once again she mentioned the band and told me when to come. So I decide to go and see if she was serious. I walked in her house for "Band Practice" and Nat said "You must be the clapper". I just laughed. So it was for real, they were actually a band and it was pretty sweet. We had Steve on the bass, Nat on drums, Julia on guitar and Kallie on guitar. I guess that means I get the shakers. :o) So as we practiced we decided that all the girls would take turns singing their own song while the others sang back up. So I had my own song... of course we are only singing cover songs at this point, but maybe one day we will start writing our own music. As for now, our only performance was an outside show next to campus, we opened for these other guys. It was a lot of fun, so there is talk of us trying to play somewhere else. Until then, Kaicia the band might be a one hit wonder.

I have to say life with Tracy is never dull. I can't believe I didn't know you were professional "clapper" quality! Hehe, really, though who didn't know you could and probably should be in a band! Let me know if you perform again, I'd love to come
