I made a video of me singing the song One Day More from the hit musical Les Miserables. It’s entertaining. You should watch it. 😀
I fell in love with the music when my summer school English teacher played it in class as a listening practice. The music was just so… epic! I had the pleasure of seeing it live back in 2003 (while it was still on a revolving stage!) and although my comprehension for English at that time wasn’t good enough yet to catch all the words, it was still a moving experience. It was also my first time seeing a live musical by a professional company (rather than my high school classmates) and what a great introduction!
Recently I watched the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert (multiple times) on PBS. What a massive production and many great singers in it (Alfie Boe, especially). And then when we started rehearsing for Puppet Jukebox, which required me to sing, I ended up using the Les Miserables soundtrack in my car as vocal warm-up (which is great for that purpose, by the way). For many weeks, every time I am driving, I am singing Les Miserables. I got almost the entire thing memorized by now.
So when Center Theatre Group announced that they were having a Les Miz Obsessed video contest for Les Miserables tickets, I thought, “Obsessed? That’s me! I should totally make a video! With puppets!” So that’s how the video came to be.
What surprised me was that the video reached 1000 views within the first day. That left me a little puzzled. I was wondering whether it got digged or stumbled. And people started mentioning Matt Lucas in the comments, which left me scratching my head. Finally I figured it out. It turned out that Matt Lucas, who was Thenardier for the 25th anniversary concert and will reprise the role at West End from June 23 to September 10, actually tweeted my video!
Whoa, definitely didn’t see that one coming! Matt Lucas approves. That made me really happy! 😀
Oh yeah, before I forget, if you enjoyed the video, please take a few seconds to vote for my video to win those tickets! You can vote for it once every 24 hours on Facebook:
