We headed to Cedar Rapids that night to hear live music at the Java Creek coffee-house. Scott and Michelle/ a husband wife duo, both master musicians in their own right, took it to another level when they played together. Michelle was teaching our daughter Rebekah guitar at the time and when they saw the three of us in the audience, they asked Rebekah to come up and sing a song with them.
It was all spur of the moment.
Rebekah picked Landslide.
Quick back story…When Rebekah worked as a Subway artist back in the day, it was not uncommon for her to lapse into song while at work…nor was it uncommon for someone who knew her, to request a song when she was working. She was like a little songbird 🙂
So there we were @ the Java Creek coffee-house, on a Friday night. Our 16-year-old home schooled daughter took the stage with Scott and Michelle…she was wearing a leather trench coat. Funny how details like that stick in my head. 😉
Those couple of minutes are still frozen in time in my mind.
She sounded every bit as good as Stevie Nicks.
You could have heard a pin drop when they finished.
I still remember a young man sitting at a table close to us, wondering who in the heck that girl was. 😉
Anyway, Landslide was on the radio just now as I was driving home…took me right back…
