Here's a six-minute sampler from the one-woman show I co-wrote and piano-accompanied, Big, Black, and Shy.
It starts with the performer, Jeffrie Givens, recreating an incident as a preschooler that reveals her extreme shyness. It includes a cameo appearance by my doggie Einstein.
At 1;04, there's the first snippet of her remarkable singing/performing ability.
That's followed by the improbable (and funny) true story of how I helped her go from being so shy to someone who performs in front of thousands of people.
At 3:45, she ends her show with a song the lyrics of which embed a lesson we all could probably benefit from.
As you'll see, she got a standing ovation, as she has every time she's performed the show.
