I have new hope that one day she will get her chance. Shows like America's Got Talent, X-Factor and The Voice are non-age specific and offer a chance for everyone with talent. My talents wouldn't make the first cut. But that's okay with me. I'm good hiding behind this keyboard.
I used to have a tape of Gretchen's Greatest Hits. But being a cassette, it has long passed on to the big jam box in the sky. God can play and rewind it all that He wants to. I like to think Hallelujah could be about Gretchen's voice. Of course, I thinking more of Lee Dewyze's version than of Shrek's. Her chords, I sure, more than please the Lord.
So here's to my wife: a beautiful woman, a beautiful person and a beautiful voice.
