My seven-year-old brother, known at times on this blog as Jerry (not his actual name) plays with his Legos almost every day. He has a folding table set up in his bedroom on which he keeps his Legos, and when he builds things with them he likes to have a continuous live soundtrack playing at all times. This is often manifested in the form of appropriate sound effects (plane crashes, zooming motorcycles and the like) but he frequently uses music as well. Today I was coming down the hall and overheard him singing songs from Les Mis at the top of his lungs. It was too good an opportunity to pass up, so I fetched my camera and took a stealthy video of him singing all the parts to "One Day More," a capella of course. I thought some of you might find it entertaining, so I'm sharing it here.
(Note: my brother did turn around at the end of the video, a segment I've cut out so his face won't be on here, and instead of being mad at my filming him without his knowledge, merely grinned at me and launched into a rousing rendition of "Do You Hear the People Sing?" while making faces for the camera. However, I prefer candid videos to have as unstudied an air as possible--that is, it's not as cute when he's just hamming it up-- so I'm not sharing that part. Anyways, I just wanted to say that so y'all knew he has no problem with being filmed. :D)
