I’m not much of a singer… always have been more of a band geek kinda girl :)… but I love music. So I joined a Christmas choir with my friend Rana. It was a fun way to meet people outside of our normal language school-church-girls home circles and a great way to get my fill of Christmas music. All the songs we sang were in English, although the Arabic accents definitely gave it a Lebanese flavor! :)
We, along with a children’s choir and a handbell choir (dad you would have loved it. really) had two concerts at the oldest evangelical church in either Syria or Lebanon. Actually I think most of the church was destroyed in the war and rebuilt, but it’s still considered the oldest… it’s a beautiful church right in downtown Beirut.
I have to admit, I had a bit of a cold, so I had to pull a Britney Spears and lipsynch the last song to avoid coughing… but I don’t think anyone noticed! :)
