If you are unfamiliar with Baylor All-University Sing, click here for a quick tutorial:
I love Baylor Sing! I've been a big fan since my high school days when I sat in the audience wide-eyed with my mouth ajar dreaming of the day when I could be up there on the stage. It made perfect sense that I would be in Sing. I was a drill team girl with a flair for the dramatic. The lights! The costumes! The singing! The dancing! Bring it on!! Alas, my high school wannabe's dreams came true a few years later as I pranced on stage and spun in a KOT 3-step turn. My senior year, I reached Sing Nirvana when I was asked to serve as the Chi Omega Sing Co-Chairman with my best friend, Cindee Garner. Oh, the fun we had coming up with a theme, the perfect songs, exciting choreography, and a big old back drop that was bigger than an Mac truck and weighed about the same!

head over to Waco Hall.
Every time I sit in Waco Hall waiting for the curtain to go up on a Sing act, I feel like I'm 22 again. My blood begins to pump, my toes begin to tap, and I begin to perform vicariously as the act unfolds. Once a Sing Chairman, always a Sing Chairman. I laughed to myself this morning when I wondered if the hundreds of Baylor students who are performing in Sing 2011 realize that there are middle-aged alums who have spent the week discussing and dissecting each of the Sing acts. We've already picked the 8 groups who will move on to Pigskin 2011. We think we know who will win and why. To aging alumni Sing Chairmen, Sing is the Superbowl. The only difference is, you can't take snacks into Waco Hall unless you have a really big "old lady" purse.
