Kate missed Gallery Night (her school's talent show) for the first time in six years because she has a terrible cold. She had prepared to sing (and play guitar) a ballad in Gallic. Unfortunately, the only way she could participate was through a display of her artwork. Although I am totally unbiased as her mother ... ahem ... I really thought this self-portrait was amazing.
Ally -- who does not have a cold -- sang "On My Own" from Les Miserables and did a wonderful job with it. She said this afternoon that being on stage doesn't scare her at all -- it's real life that makes her nervous.
