舞台上的明星 A Shining Star on the Stage

我跟一個朋友,在以前求學的時候,都一定會被入選為合唱團的成員。我們都很愛唱歌,這是我們的共通處。不過,我跟她完全相反的是,我比較閉俗、低調,不想成為舞台上的焦點;天生就有舞台魅力的她,則是享受在舞台上發光發熱的感受。一次我們抱著好玩的心態,一起參加學校的歌唱大賽,她得到了第一名,我得到了第三名。第一名的人可以在校慶有個表演給全校的機會。我很慶幸自己是第三名(表示評審覺得我歌喉還不差,但是我又不用上台表演給全校看),但讓我更印象深刻的是之後的事。

 

這件事讓我對我朋友刮目相看。

我朋友在台上表演時,觀眾表現熱絡,而歌曲開始要進入副歌時,後臺不曉得發生什麼事,伴奏的音樂突然停掉了。全部人都還沒回過神時,我朋友沒有半點遲疑,老神在在繼續唱了下去。憑著高超的歌技跟穩穩的節拍,清唱這段極具挑戰的副歌,而台下的人歡呼更是熱烈,接著伴奏又恢復正常而響起,就像什麼事也沒發生那樣,一分一秒都不差地對上我朋友唱的段落。觀眾樂極了!

 

事後,我為她的表現感到與有榮焉,更覺得她的自信是值得我學習的地方。如果是我遇到這種伴奏消失的意外,我會反應不過來,我可能會面帶尷尬地說我要重來一遍,這可不是糗翻了嗎?但是我朋友的自信表現,卻為她的表演帶來了最美好的一段插曲!

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!
