Last week, I happened to stumble on a note that Janis Borgueta posted on Facebook, mentioning that she was so proud of her songbird daughter, Kathleen, who was going to be singing at the National Cathedral on Wednesday evening. So, of course, I had to check it out.
Now, to sing at the National Cathedral, you have to be really, really good - even to sing in the choir. But Kathleen was the main soloist for a festive Choral Evensong to install a new Canon for the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. So that means she is completely amazing.
Her voice was so pure and clear and beautiful that listening made my heart skip a beat. Her angelic voice in the almost overwhelming cathedral setting was such a wonderful way to end a day of intense negotiations on a favorite listing.
Thank you, Kathleen!
P.S. I almost forgot the most fun part - Janis' comment reminded me! After the service I went up to Kathleen and introduced myself. She broke into a very wide grin and asked if I was the one with a Labradoodle named Willie! Now, that's what I love about ActiveRain! We have a lot of family that we're just waiting to meet!
