For this prompt I am going to pretend that I can actually sing, as I am pretty sure I would break some glass with my screeching. Ok, so I have a beautiful voice and I am going to sing "Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler......and let me tell you why:
The very first concert I ever went to was with my mom to see Bette Midler (and please don't take away my cool card)...and ever since then, that was our song...well actually, it was MY song to her.
In the first verse it talks about her being in my shadow...always letting me shine...always walking a step behind. And how true that was.... She always made sure that I "shined". She did all she could to motivate me and make me succeed.....even if it meant moving aside to let me through!!
And of course, the chorus... "Did you ever know that you're my hero? You're everything I wish I could be. I could fly higher than an eagle,for you are the wind beneath my wings." There is no statement that is more true than that. My mom was MY HERO...she was everything I want to be (i long to be the woman..the mother...the wife that she was)..and I could fly higher than eagle as long as she was the wind that pushed me along!!!
As a matter of fact, on Mother's Day a few years ago, we got her a picture frane with a collage of pictures; and around each single person picture (kids and me) we each wrote something around it.... The kids wrote "i love you nanny"..best grama"..etc. And I wrote the words of the chrous around a picture of her and I.Back to American Idol.... I would sing that song as good and as loud as I could. And as long as I could get through it without crying, I'm sure I would get a standing O as everyone would be blown away at my talent (ok, ok...I'm getting a little carried away, I know!!); and the reason it would be so good is because she would be there, in spirit...my angel.... the "wind beneath my wings".
Oh and that song would be the first of many, because I'm sure I would make it to the finals...and then ultimately I would be the "next american idol". Wow...how cool would that be for all of you, huh?? You could say that you "know" an american idol..woohoo!! I know--full of myself again!!)
