Hello my friends, Well, I’m so sorry I’ve been a bit absent for a few days. I have been working intently on an unexpected family project that has taken all my attention and internet expertise. But now I am back because I missed you terribly and I have all sorts of fun things to share with you.
I posted the last verse of “The Magic You Were Born With” – the song the Fairy Godmother sings to Thom in “Thom and the Dragon” today on Instagram. I’ll post the whole song here soon, but I thought you might like the last verse while I’m putting that together.
Ah, a Fairy Godmother. We all need one, don't we? The song, "The Magic You Were Born With" from "Thom and the Dragon" on the April Eight Songs & Stories Podcast. (Url in bio) "Why wave a magic wand, when you had what it takes all along? And that's love, love, love – it's the Magic you were born with…" all original songs and stories by me, April Eight for you, my favorite people. So much fun!!! xoxo #song #story #mom #family #kids #love
I originally wrote this song for an original version of Cinderella for the Clifton Performance Theatre. The play, written by Carol Brammer, was such a funny, smart take on Cinderella, and writing the songs for it was such a joy.
Well, this song is pretty much my theme song! So I knew when I wrote The Butterfly Adventurer Series that I’d have to find a spot for a Fairy Godmother. I did!
In the Cinderella version I sing, “And it’s gonna take Love and Imagination to turn that pumpkin into transportation.”
