The Hope of Talent

In Playwriting on August 30, 2009 at 8:26 am

Talent shows… we love ’em.  And why?  Because everyone loves to watch “Ordinary People” have a moment in the spotlight… it gives us an upswelling of hope to see someone recognized as unique.  We watch them, bated breath, mirroring their hopes, reckognizing their desire to be celebrated within ourselves… dreaming that we too could be noticed and cheered on if given the chance.

Watch this  Not only can this guy sing, he gets the whole audience to their feet and it just feels good!  It’s the good side of reality television – something you won’t hear me say often since most of it is crap – and you can’t help but be happy for the guy.

Sometimes someone else’s joy can make your own day glow.
