O Mio Babbino Caro

My descent back into music has been a hard one. I haven’t had a very easy road, but it’s okay. It had me stronger. While I was still playing around with the idea of coming back into music I saw a video that, literally, changed my life. I had heard about a performer named Sissel and many people had told me before I had left music that I sounded just like her. So I decided to look her up.

For those of you who don’t know who Sissel is, here is super short background. She’s a Norwigan classical soprano that has sung all over the world as well as with many choirs including Utah’s own Mormon Tabernacle Choir. She’s beautiful and has an amazing voice!

Typing in Sissel brings up hundreds of videos on Youtube, but for some reason, maybe God or just my likeness of the color purple, I picked the video of O Mio Babbino Caro she did for a PBS special.

I was totally blown away! It was like all the emotions that I had been holding in over the past five years just came poring out and I knew that I had really been missing out on life. Now I have the song in my hot little hands and I’m working profussly to sound half as good as Sissel.

That video, that song, that singer really changed my life. God bless Sissel.

    I love Sissel too! She is amazing! I have one of her albums. I can burn you a copy or try to send you her songs in a file thru email if you want it. But you probably already beat me to it! Good luck with getting back into music. It’s hard to get started when you’ve been hiatus. I know, I have yet to touch my music programs. It’s been about 2 years since I’ve created anything, but I feel stuck. Love ya!
