ʻO kaʻu keiki, Bill, is leading up the sound production for his High School's performance of The Wizard of Oz. My daughter is going to be in it as well, playing one of the munchkins. Katie is already getting some rave reviews by the people in the play… really cool since she's only in Middle School! It was a stretch for her even to be able go get in the play. She absolutely loves it, though. I'm always amazed at the talent of both of my kids.

As you can imagine, my days and nights are now full of songs from the Wizard of Oz. My son has rewritten “If I only had a Heart” into a modern acoustic version. He hasn't performed it outside the home, though. I wanted to inspire him a little to just pick up the guitar and play it during a break at practice today.

When I saw this video at 3R.e.Medium, I showed it to him and it inspired him to bring his guitar into the rehearsal today. My son has no problem entertaining a crowd… but not a crowd that has no idea what's coming. Imagine performing on a Paris subway! That's what these incredibly talented folks did:

E hoʻonāukiuki paha kēia iā ʻoe! Ua hoʻonāukiuki i kaʻu keiki!

PS: I ka pō nei i loaʻa pū kekahi Bill haehaeia Ka Wiz no laila hiki iā mākou ke hoʻololi i kahi wikiwiki. 😉
