I’ve been to many live shows in Second Life, but this evening I attended a concert by Samm Qendra and she delivered a performance I’ll remember for a long time. Samm sang at The Spring Glass Pavilion at Calas Galadhon to a packed house. And from the opening song to the very end, this lady filled the night with her fresh, lovely and even darling music.
I am writing this post only moments after the show ended because I’m very enthusiastic about this lady. Her singing touched my heart with her renditions of “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”, “I Will Always Love You” and re-opened a world of wonder with “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” Here are some photos that caught a few moments of her performing.
Here’s some comments from Samm’s Profile: “I’m just a simple, ordinary girl who loves to sing. I’ve always believed that everything that comes from the heart touches hearts, with that said I sing songs that I can connect to most of the times.”
Sometimes, excellent singers don’t come across well in Second Life because of sound system or studio or other technical issues. But when a fine singer has it all going right, you know! And this lady had it right. Samm is a wonderful performer and a delight with her occasional giggles as she responds to streaming chat. I feel at a loss for not having found her sooner. She is a Second Life treasure and I look forward to her coming concerts.
Second Life video producers Geo Meek, Faya Angel and Robert Little have recorded several concerts and I think you should take a moment to listen to at least one of the following links.
