So I mentioned that we saw "Les Miserables" recently. Keren is completely taken with the play. It is in her alarm clock, which goes off twice a day. She likes to go to sleep with it also. Our house is all "Les Mis," all the time.
When she woke up the other day, I walked into her room at "Castle on a Cloud." She did not see me walk in. She was singing along. I listened. The kid is good. She would do a great job playing the young Cosette. If someone could please pass that along to central casting, I would appreciate it.
The disk we have is the London West End recording.
My daughter sings "Les Mis" with a British accent.
Just for the record. She was born in the South. She started speaking in New York. She has lived most of her life in Canada. I have pieces of a New York accent in my speech, and can easily do a southern drawl. Jennifer probably sounds like she is from the Northeastern part of the United States, with a specific twinge of Boston on very rare occasions (odd enough...she is from New York). No one in this family speaks English with a British accent. I spent three days in London back in 1988. Jennifer has passed through Heathrow twice. That is simply not enough to make a difference.
Oh well...she sounds great.
