Hopie's solo in the Christmas play
Originally David was asked to sing this song for our church Christmas program. He didn't really want to do it but said he would if I bought him a video game. As he practiced, Hope would sing along. He has an amazing voice, but his heart wasn't in it. Eventually he said he didn't want to do it because it sounded like a little girl song. Hope immediately volunteered. I plugged in the soundtrack and let her try it. As she sang the song that I had heard over and over again, it finally moved me to tears. She may not be perfectly on key or have David's talent for singing, but she sang it from her heart and that made all the difference.
