Young Love, by the Judds

This is the song that you can use to practice the song, "Young Love", by the Judds.  This is what the grandkids and great grandkids of Grandpa $ will be singing for the funeral.
We will do this in the Key of C.  This is sung on this video in the key of B, which is a 1/2 step lower than what we will be singing in. 

If you want a solo (or a solo with someone else), call me and let me know.  Otherwise, all you will need to learn is the chorus, and will just sing each time it comes around.

Sweet Violets at Assisted Living Home for Great Grandma Wilma

This is a song that as a child, I could never quite figure out why it didn't seem to flow as well as other songs - something seemed wrong with it.  About the time I became a teenager, I realized it was the lack of rhyme that was bothering me.  I also appreciated what the song was really portraying, and then I really liked the song.  It wasn't until I was even older that I realized what the last verse was telling me about, "All a girl wants from a man is his "dough".  Now I just smile as we sing it, and enjoy it.

We are missing Rachelle :(.  It never sounds as good without one of the daughters!
Mason helped out on the guitar.  He had never played this song before.  I'll post the lyrics and cords.

Radioactive at the Middle School Talent Show (grandsons), April, 2014

Trevor (beat box), Mason (guitar, back up vocal) and their little brother Carter (lead vocal) performing at the Middle School Talent Show.  Trevor on beat box is a little hard to hear, cause it sounds so natural and blends in.  No recorded music, all live.  These boys figured this out off I Tunes and rehearsed all on their own.  No sheet music, etc.  I'm very proud of them for putting themselves out there in front of the whole school  Way to go!!!!   They sound great.

Adelin's Dream Dance at the School Talent Show

My daughter found this dress at the second hand store for $3.00 and gave it to her for her birthday.  You can tell that Adelin feels beautiful, and she is dancing so beautifully :) She told me she was going to twirl and do the splits at the talent show, and so she did! We all laughed so hard, and you would too if you knew her personality.
