Did you know that I'm so terrible in singing? Honestly, I hate a lot when people asked me to sing a song. I don't have any good voice, so I'd love to sing just for myself. ha ha
Well, maybe that's sound weird but that's true. I don't really like it, and I have a tragic story about singing in front of the class. It happened few years ago.....
This tragedy happened when I was in the third class in Elementary School. One day, my teacher asked all of the students to play an instrument, and sing in front of the class. Most of student in my class was so happy to hear that task as a final test, but not me. Play an instrument wasn't a big deal, but the other one - SING IN FRONT OF THE CLASS ! Lord, I have no idea about this. I have to sing in front of the class - watching whole people there, come on, are kidding me?
My teacher didn't give me any choices, I really have to sing. At the time, I started with practiced piano, I practiced very hard. The song that I would play was "Mengheningkan Cipta", but I still confused to choose what song that I would to sing. Finally, I chose "Indonesia Pusaka" as a song that I would sing at the test. Almost everyday I spent my time to practice. Honestly, I was afraid if I forgot the musical notes, but the biggest fear was singing. I didn't know why I felt so nervous if someone asked me to sing in front of many people.
The day came, my teacher began calling the student one by one. Then my turn came, she called my name. And I went to my teacher's desk with brought my keyboard. The nervous came but I still able to control it. My teacher praised my play, afterward she asked me to sing. I said, "Okay mam". I walked to the front of the class, unexpected feeling came - the nervous controlled me. I couldn't to handle it. I tried to start singing, I could sing the first lyric very well. But the next lyrics, Oh my God ! I forgot the next lyrics, totally forgot. I couldn't remember it. But I kept hard to remember it, I repeated the first lyric. However it didn't work and I gave up. I decided to change the song. Because the remarkable nervous, the song that I've got left in my head only the legendary song - Balonku Ada Lima. That's really really tragic, I didn't have any choices. Finally, I sang the legendary song with low-pitch-voiced. It's really embarrassing. But luckily, none of my friends heard what song that I sang. ha ha ha
If I remember this tragic story how come "Indonesia Pusaka" become "Balonku Ada Lima". It was a tragicomedy story in my life.
