Caleb's School Talent Show

Caleb performed in his Elementary School Talent Show this month.  There were about 25 kids performing, including his sister, and he was very last to go on stage.  

He wanted to play Jon Schmidt's "All of Me" for the performance.  To help him practice, he uploaded Jon Schmidt's mp3 of the song, but soon found out that the way Jon played it on the mp3 was a little different than what the actual musical score had written.  Hmmmm......Caleb wanted to play it the way Jon Schmidt played it on the mp3, so he listened to it a few times and made the changes in the music.  

So, here he is at the school talent show performing the "modified version" of Jon Schmidt's "All of Me".  

We think he did awesome!

Caleb Plays in Church Once Again

Caleb's family was asked to speak in church, but when they say "speak", Caleb thinks "play".  So, Caleb spoke  AND played the piano.  He played the piano 3 times.  Once to accompany his older brother singing, once to accompany his younger sister on violin, and once just alone in his own piano solo.  What a day it was!!!

You can check out his brother or sister on their blogs, but here is what Caleb played; another beautiful arrangement by Aaron Waite, "Oh, Let Us Rejoice":

One thing to note---Caleb found this arrangement just 2 days before Sunday, so he had only those 2
days to learn a brand new song to perform.  He did a great job!
