Music Taste

Piper and I were watching a taped American Idol yesterday afternoon. There was a special performance by Il Volo - 3 tenors from Italy. They blend opera into a modern sound. Piper was a bit confused when they first started singing ( I guess it's not the typical sound she hears on American Idol). She looked at me and said, "Mom, I don't like his voice but I like his face." I guess even at 4 she's figured out what she finds handsome.

As each of the other guys began singing she had the same response - "He's a bad singer Mom". I tried to explain that the American Idol contestants could only dream of singing so well, of having a tone so pure and the perfect amount of strength and control. BUT - I believe all of that went over her head and we are left with this result - Piper does NOT like Opera!
