Sometimes my insomnia is so bad that I just have to get out of bed and go do something. The other night was like this, so I decided to get online and look up youtube videos of some of the songs I am interested in learning.
In so doing, I found a fabulous new singer to love. Her moniker on youtube is psychosoprano, and I found her by looking up Songs for a New World, which is my latest obsession and I want to learn all of them.
Anyway, here's the first one I watched by her: Just One Step from Songs for a New World.
After I watched that I was so impressed that I started to watch everything she ever posted of herself performing.
I really liked this one: The Party Dress. And at the very end, when she sings her last note, I had an epiphany.
Oh. My. Gosh. She is Miranda! mirandasings08 of youtube infamy. The one that I honestly thought was real. I mean, what with all of the American Idol auditions, I've learned that amazingly enough, these people really do exist.
Don't know who Miranda is? She's been going around on Facebook lately, at least in my circles of voice teachers/singers. Look her up. Or, here are a couple of my favorite Miranda videos.

(Just so you know, just about everything she teaches in this lesson is dead wrong, but oh-so-hilarious.)
Miranda sings Queen of the Night.
Watching this one makes me laugh so hard that I cry. Every time.
But, it's all so much funnier now that I realize that she actually rocks the singing.
And just in case you don't believe me, here's the absolute proof I found a bit later. I'm just very proud that I made the connection all by myself. (ETA: This video has now been made private for some reason. Maybe she decided she didn't want Miranda outed. Oh well!)
now that I've sufficiently wasted all your time watching crazy videos...I think I'll go practice some of those songs that I'm so determined to learn.
