my dad is my lead singer

My dad is my lead singer and when we jam together, upstairs in my house in Florida, he makes me feel like i’m a true rock and roll star playing for a sold out house at the Garden. But it’s just us usually, and of course, a handful of my decade old stuffed animals scattered throughout the room.

A couple of years ago, my dad and I decided to start recording our jam sessions and put them up on YouTube. Since i wasn’t living at home anymore, it became a tradition that we’d pick a song and practice every single day i was home and record right before i left – sometimes we would record minutes before my plane was about to take off – because getting a new song out was important for our “fans”, but mostly for us.

My dad has always been my lead singer. He’s been my #1 promoter, often singing news about even my smallest accomplishments to every single person he would meet throughout the day – even strangers at a CVS, a restaurant, or in the middle of Forever21.

But like most lead singers of the bands you listen to you on the radio or your record player, he’s the true star. The personality, the motivation, the “look” behind the band. He’s what keeps our band together – making us rocking even harder than the last video.

He’s the one that makes me realize, an audience of 1 or 100 never matters – As long as you’re having fun. And that we do, and that we do.

I love you dad, always.

I’m Jen Glantz. I’ve been a published writer for over 13 years, spilling my words into magazines (ranging from style to scuba diving), newspapers, websites and even this one time, a speech, for someone who didn’t speak a word of English. What drives my words, my site, my writing, is the power of relating to people. I find that many people, especially young girls, feel so alone and quite often they feel embarrassed. I want to shatter those feelings! I want them to read what I write and understand that it’s okay to be a little outside of the box, but most importantly, that it is okay to just be who they are.
