Work here can get kind of mundane at certain points, which is why I was super excited to see local singing sensation Alexis Barnick come in for an interview and possibly chirp a few notes.
I had a simple request â€” â€œSing me a song from the â€˜Newsies.â€â€
Those who know me well know that I myself am a bit of a song and dance man. â€œNewsiesâ€ is one of my favorite musicals and one song and dance person to another I thought she might sing me a little tune and perk up the workday.
She in fact did not and flat out refused to sing for me. I was willing for a duet but Ms. Barnick refused and I was left watching Youtube clips and wishing somebody would sing â€œBleeding Loveâ€ for me.
I even offered to teach her how to play harmonica for one song, but still it was too little too late.
So hereâ€™s what I watched yesterday instead. Look for a young Christian Bale and try to tell me he wasnâ€™t a jerk back then.
