Generation Z Takeover!

Emily arrived in Washington with 20% of a voice, so it was Zoe Ziegler to the rescue! Five years of attending mom’s shows finally paid off, because she knew all the words and all the harmonies. With only two hours of rehearsal–ever–having never rehearsed with us before, she did an amazing job as Emily’s vocal stand in. Huge thanks to Douglas County Daughters’ honorary daughter!

I’m getting better, but not quite ready for prime time.
