Chapter 21 - Our Ward Choir Was on TV

This island has it’s own version of “Music and the Spoken Word.”  Every week a different ward prepares a program that includes musical numbers from their choir and an inspirational message from the bishop.  It is broadcast on the local religious TV station every Sunday night.  Our ward had their turn last week.  It was a great experience, despite the fact that they had to record in the Primary room and the "undersized" wall hung air conditioner was not working, and they couldn’t use the ceiling fans because when they brought in the raisers for the choir to stand on, the heads of those on the top row were above the fan blades.  It was a great experience despite the heat.  We were rehearsing while they were setting up the TV cameras, and just before they started to record I got sick and had to sit down.  Dennis said it was a conspiracy on my part – I was the one who likes to sing, and he was the one who was on TV doing the singing.  We hope to be able to get a copy of the recording.
