And that's not all Rainbow fans! The girls got a special treat this week when the show's music director, Nigel Wright, surprised them with tickets to see Barbra Streisand in concert. Read on to see what they had to say about the show!
Stephanie on seeing Barbra Streisand...
Us Dorothys were busy drawing pictures of each other when Nigel, our music director, gave us each a piece of paper and asked us to 'learn it for tomorrow'. Little did we know they weren't lyrics, but tickets... To what you ask? BARBRA STREISAND!!! We got the tickets last minute and rushed to the concert. Barbra was absolutely phenomenal, especially for her age! We recognized a few songs from the show, such as 'Don't Rain On My Parade', 'Smile' and 'Somewhere'. And she sang a duet with her sister and her son as well. The show was outstanding, simply stunning. I'm so thankful I got to see it because this is probably one of her last tours.
Danielle on Barbra Streisand...
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I can't believe we saw Barbra Streisand! She was absolutely incredible! When we walked in I looked around and I was taken aback by the number of people there to see one person. One incredibly talented woman. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I have never heard someone sing with so much passion. She looked beautiful and had me captivated from the very beginning. It was funny, throughout the show I would look over at the other girls just to see if I was the only one in awe of this woman, only to see the other girls in the same state. The girls and I took a vow that one day we hope to affect an audience in the same beautiful way the she affected us.
We can't help but wonder if seeing Barbra Streisand in concert will have an effect on the girls' performances tonight. Tune in with us this evening at 8/830PM NT to find out. And check back soon for our next installment of the Nikon Dorothy Diaries!
