Although I understand that you are experienced in the task of selecting candidates that appear on your show, your decision to dismiss Cassie was a mistake. She is an exceptional singer who deserves a second chance.
For your consideration is the following video:
Left to Right: Pedro (piano accompanist), Keara (soprano), and Cassie (alto).
This clip was filmed yesterday, September 8, 2007, at our friends’ wedding. Congratulations to Lauren and Matt — we wish you the very best!
The Nitty-Gritty Who-What-Where-When-Why-How:
Who are the other two performing? Close friends of the bride and groom, all of whom I’ve become friends with since moving to Michigan.
What song is that? “Barcarolle” by Jacques Offenbach, from his opera Les contes d’Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann). The piece has been incorporated into many movies including Life is Beautiful. (source)
Where are you? Holding the camera. I apologize for any unsteadiness.
When will Cassie go on tour? To be announced. 😀
Why did you put this video on the Internet? In my recent article titled How American Idol Auditions Work, I described how Cassie is hands down the best singer I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. I went on to say that every time I hear her sing, I fall in love with her. Consequently, readers wanted to hear her — so here she is.
