A friend of mine and I always got selected as members of the choir when we were in schools. We all love singing, this is what we have in common. However, the exact opposite to her is that I am more low-key, and do not want to be the focus of the stage; she, who is born to be a star on the stage, enjoys the feeling of being a shining star on the stage. Once we took part in the school singing contest just for fun. She won the first place and I won the third place. The first person can have a chance to perform to the whole school during the school celebration. I felt lucky that I was the third place (indicating that the judges think my singing was not bad, but I didn’t have to perform on stage for the whole school), but what impressed me more was what happened afterwards.
What she had done was totally impressive.
When my friend performed on stage, the audience was enthusiastic, and when everyone was ready for the chorus, no one knew what went wrong but the accompaniment music suddenly stopped. When everyone was still confused, my friend didn’t hesitate at all, she continued to sing with superb singing skills and steady beats, presented this challenging chorus with wonderful cappella, and the audience all cheered insanely. Finally, the accompaniment started to play out normally as if nothing happened, exactly played the right part where my friend sang. The audience was so entertained!
Afterwards, I felt proud of her performance, and felt that her self-confidence is worth learning. If it was me who’s to encounter the situation that accompaniment music disappeared, I would not be able to react calmly. I might say in embarrassment that I want to start it all over again. But isn’t this embarrassing? My friend’s self-confidence transformed the unexpected incident into an amazing performance!
