When a member of a local community chorus in the New York City borough of Brooklyn was diagnosed with cancer, he didn't take it lying down. OK, he did have to take it lying down, but his voice wasn't going to be stilled.
Partially out of boredom and partially to entertain his fellow patients undergoing radiation treatment, this man, my friend of many years, decided to write and sing songs while undergoing his treatments.
Hence, something we can call Six Cups of Water in Three Variations. Why six cups of water? My friend must drink six cups of water before the treatment begins. And, then, hold it in until the treatment ends.
He's passed his halfway point and "only has 20 more treatments to go."
The video above came out the best, probably because I finally figured out that the lighting was all wrong in the first two. Remember, I am just starting out in my video career.
So without further ado...Six Cups of Water.
My friend graciously (OK, eagerly) sang all three songs in the series. The third video (the first one I shot) didn't come out that well (don't ask why part of it is sideways-you really don't want to know), but the audio is fine - I just don't have the knowledge or software to fix the video portion up. So VERTIGO WARNING close your eyes and just listen to the music on this third one.
And remember, you might have to pay good money one day to hear him sing! Just think if these take off and go viral....probably not but we can dream.
If you like what you heard please show my friend some blog love, and tell him so in the comments!
