Wow- I hope no women see this thread and accuse us of sensitivity!
Forgive me for taking a VERY different tack here, but this particular musical performance was not at a wedding...but did occur on a special- and very somber day. I don't share this to bring anyone down....I was just reminded of the powerful impact of music by this thread.
On Sept. 11, 2001, I happened to be attending a trade show in Chicago's McCormack Place. When I arrived that morning at about 9:00 am, the entire hall was in shock as we collectively watched the morning's events unfold. The most somber, quiet mood descended over that huge facility. Then, without fanfare at all, a young woman working the trade show at a competitors booth took the stage, and alone, sang the Star-Spangled Banner. Her voice was beautiful, and filled the entire hall. You could hear nothing but her voice.
When she finished, the entire facility broke into tears and applause.
I'll never forget THAT special event. Music is a most powerful and comforting force- in both happy AND sad circumstances.
