Coincidentally the other day I was doing a serious search on i-Tunes for a recording of Caro Nome when I accidentally came across the most amusing recording ever. I found a recording of the aria by a soprano named Orielle Smith. I opened up the file and listened to the sample expecting a lovely rendition of Verdi's classic aria from Rigoletto. I couldn't believe my ears! It appears as though Orielle Smith is a chicken. I died laughing. She has an entire CD called The World's Favorite Cluckoratura Arias. She does all the famous coloratura arias as a chicken. She even does Der Holle Rache (The Queen of the Night aria) chicken style!! It's absolutely Hilarious, especially since I can say from first hand experience that most coloratura sopranos tend to sound like chickens a lot of the time!!!
I just couldn't resist downloading that Queen of the Night aria, since it is my favorite diva role! Achilles can't believe that I paid 0.99 for the chicken version of it. Little does he know that I plan on downloading the entire CD for $6.75 as an Easter gift for Julia. I know she'll love it. It'll be Bawk all the time for Jen, Achilles & Julia. How cultured our little diva will be, tee hee!! :)
I have to be honest, I'm just relieved that I'm not the only diva who has resorted to singing opera "bawk style" to get a laugh. All I have to say is never underestimate the power of an opera singing chicken, cause not only do we have the vocal agility required to sing clukoratura soprano arias, but we also make great eggs :)

I Praise the Lord for His unending love that never changes. Even when I fail to comprehend His love for me because my eyes are blinded by sin, His love is more powerful than anything I'll ever experience. I am thankful that I can truly surrender everything at His feet. I am overwhelmed yet again by His grace and mercy. I am thankful that I can come to Him in repentance and be cleansed of the dirt in my life. I praise Him for His word of truth and for the way it was presented at downpour last weekend. I praise Him for His faithfulness, for His glory for His majesty, for the cross and His resurrection.
I'm finally ready to receive His downpour. Revival has begun. Hallelujah!
Let us know. Let us press on to know the Lord.
His going out is as sure as the dawn.
He will come to us as the showers,
like the spring rain that waters the earth
