Practice, Practice, Practice.
It’s not a matter of showing up and singing. We’ve spent our summer having numerous practices, learning the new songs and rehearsing ones from years past. All for one night of entertainment and to earn donations for Susan G. Komen® – Chicago.
In this video, Bobby rehearses American Girl. Since this is a competition song, we’re only showing a segment. Be there September 20, at Brown Pub, Hinckley, to hear it in its entirety.
