my son, a singer?

15 January 2010

I have been telling my son, from the time he can already understand simple words, about the talent's that God has given to each and every person he has created. That God has given us the responsibility to discover and use our talents.

When I picked up my son, RJ, in school today...
RJ: "Mama, I am joining a talent show."
Me: "Really, when?"
RJ: "Wednesday, next week."
Me: "Did teacher asked you to join?"
RJ: "No, I volunteered to show my talent in singing."
Me: (He has a talent in singing??) "I am so proud of you, son!"
RJ: "Only 5 out of 35 kids in our class are joining."
Me: "I am so proud of you."
RJ: "Now I have a problem, I don't know what to sing. I am thinking of 'We will Rock You' from the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. But there are other songs that I also want to sing."
Me: "We will practice, don't worry about it. I am so proud of you."

I was shocked and proud at the same time. Shocked that he wanted to show his talent--in singing (?) and proud of his confidence that he has a talent--in singing (?). He doesn't have a horrible voice, he can carry a tune. I've noticed that when he was still a toddler, maybe he does have a talent in singing. But all he has been singing (in the house) are his OWN compositions. Mostly unintelligible words with lots of banging of the guitar (he doesn't know how to play the guitar, by the way).

What will I do if, instead of the song from Alvin and the Chipmunks, he wants to sing his own composition in the talent show?

I guess I will allow him. It's good that he is confident of his talents.

But what if the other boys (he attends an all boys school) teases him because they don't understand his song composition?

Well, I have to wait for his decision on what he will sing. Will talk to him later.
