Hey it's Sunday Session time, and this week I'm really excited because we went to see Wicked the Musical on Friday night.
It was amazing!! We loved it! Glinda (the good witch) was adorable, and had the funniest lines,
and Elphaba (the wicked witch) had an incredible voice.
There were some brilliant songs including Defying Gravity, Popular, the Wizard and I, and As Long as You're Mine. There was heaps of merchandise too, pens, notebooks, CDs, posters, programmes. I think you HAVE to buy a programme when you see a musical, so we did, but there was also a book which tells the making of the musical, and we had to have that as well! It was designed to look like the Wizard's spell book, the Grimmerie.
So I HAD to share some of the songs from the show with you today. I was surprised when looking on youtube, that Adam Lambert, from American Idol, played the part of Fiyero in the Broadway version of Wicked, between 2005 and 2008, before his Idol fame.
This song was a gorgeous moment in the musical (a bit raunchy for a Sunday!) but I just love Adam Lambert in this.

(Oh, I can't fgure out how to get the video on my blog, but just click on the youtube link.)
And you have to see Defying Gravity, because it is just such a powerful song, and is a very stirring part of the show. Hit those notes, baby!

If you didn't get to see the show this time, it will probably come back around in ten years time, so make sure you see it then!!
