The BELLE of the ........ show! :)

OHHHHHHHHHHHHH my goodness, I could not be beaming happier and prouder right about now!  Seeing Chrissy in the show was something I'll never forget :)  Other than my camera battery dying 10 minutes into the show {it was fully charged!!!}, it was perfect!   At least we got a few really bad i-phone pictures albeit super grainy and way out of zoom!  Here's my sweetie as Belle in Beauty and the Beast.  I had some serious tears during her rendition of "Home"!  She did an amazing job, such raw emotion comes out when she sings - with such passion and she truly is one of those performers that "owns" the music - singing from the heart through and through. The entire cast was perfect with such young voices of talent - a pure delight and I won't be coming down from this high for awhile! :)  Thank you Jesus for this blessing of beautiful voices, talented children and the eyes to witness it!
