Word of the Day!
by Erica Papillion-Posey
As some of your are aware, I am currently away in Italy singing the role of La Zia Principessa from Suor Angelica at the Tuscia Operafestival and I have had the opportunity to witness some absolutely (one of my favorite words) gorgeous voices and some that…well…. are outright delusional as to their perceived talents.
Now I do not profess to be a star. I’m not remotely close but, people, I say this to you so hear me closely! If any of you EVER think that I need to go somewhere and sit down, (as my grandmother would say), permanently, then I beg of you– scream it and do it loudly! There is nothing more tragic than a person who has wasted their hard earned ‘dolla bills ya’ll’ than someone who hasn’t a chance in hell of EVER becoming an opera singer much less a ‘singer’ of any kind.
Shout out to Florence Foster Jenkins Sad to say, I have officially found your equal and she completely suffers from your condition.
