I love it when you have the audience sing alongs. Would it be possible for you to do a few more of them this season? I remember one you did years ago that had "Moon River", "It's Only a Paper Moon", and "Bad Moon On The Rise" in it. That audience was wonderful.
I guess I misread the audience, Andrea, and I detected a reluctance to sing, even a faint loathing of the idea, sappy as it is. Or maybe I was projecting onto them some feelings of my own from occasions when performers have tried to bully audiences into singing. I will rethink this matter. The medley you mention sounds like fun, if one were in the mood, and torture if one were not. But I must say that our audiences thrive on singing the national anthem. Every time we do, they give a stellar performance.
