For those of you who don’t know, my youngest brother Derrick is a crazy awesome singer.
A few weeks ago he had his junior recital on the SMSU campus and we were lucky enough to attend.
Apart from the booming Bass voice, the best part of the performance had to be Derrick’s facial expressions. One instant himself introducing the piece, the next, a suave, charismatic lover serenading his other half. I have to admit there were moments where if he would have looked at me I would have bust out laughing. Not to say that his singing is laughable at all, but growing up together always having fun it’s just so funny watching him be serious. Just doesn’t look right.
Now I sat next to him in choir for years and spent many road trips singing along to tunes, swapping lead and back-up; But I know there are lots of you out there who have never had the chance to listen to Derrick sing.
As luck would have it, someone was video taping Derrick’s performance and I have posted the audio tracks below for your listening enjoyment.
Please note that these are rough cuts and not in the order preformed, so you may have to skip ahead a bit on each track to get to the good stuff.
