I Love To Sing and I Love Rent!!! - Rent is Back this 2011!

It's been a few days since I've watched Rent live in the Rockwell Cinema. 

I just want to say that it was really the first time I ever listened to a musical, as in really listen to the songs and the story of a Broadway hit. Sure I like music and musicals but I just discovered before this that I wasn't really paying attention to anything I've watched before. Maybe that's why I couldn't recall the story and the characters in all these years. I know I watched Rent before in a much bigger setting but I can't even recall that time very much. I'm glad I watched it like it was the first time again, with an opened mind about hope and love and within the context of the songs tuned just right for the melodies. It will be easier to sing along and relate to if I know the story, especially now with the Last Song Syndrome of Rent songs in my head. "I Should Tell You" and "Light My Candle" are slowly gaining popularity.
