My sister had oft spoken of her deep desire to be in a Broadway musical, despite her current hiatus from public singing. And she could do it; she would rock the Casbah. True story.
I, on the other hand, while loving the spotlight and belting out a rockin' karaoke jam, am not made for the stage. Put me working the lights or sound or props and I'll be fine.
That's why GLEE works for people like Heather. And for people like me. It's chock full of power ballads done by relatively decent vocalists with a story-line that have to matter because everyone knows we're all just watching it for the music.
If you love Journey (and who doesn't?!), you should watch GLEE.
If you want to watch Idina Menzel absolutely DESTROY a Lady GaGa song, you should watch GLEE.
If you were ever in or desirous of being in a vocal group, you should watch GLEE.
If you ever felt like a loser/outcast in high school, especially when pitted against the cheerleaders and jocks, you should watch GLEE.
If you want to find a plethora of songs to belt out to in the car so that as you're driving down the road people look at you a little funny because though it's quite obvious you're not black, you are certainly attempting to sound like Whitney Houston, you should watch GLEE. (Wow...that one got personal...)
And if you are able to find expression to who you are through music, you should watch GLEE.
So, have I convinced you? Are you a GLEE(k)? And where do you belt out your power ballads? =)
