I didn’t prepare too much. We just had like three days to get ready and I like to sing. It’s just really fun to sing and I don’t get to much. And at my house I’m not allowed to because your children can’t stand it when you sing. … It’s been hard to wait until everybody’s out of the house because there are a lot of them, and sing. Anyway, I was really glad to be able to do it. It was so much fun, so much fun. Pure joy.
