Anything Worth Holding On To - Revue #9
The music of Scott Alan is admired and sung by many Broadway artists. In May of 2014, he released a digital EP entitled Anything Worth Holding On To. This song covers a lot of issues that some might be experiencing of late that have surfaced because of stress and the uncertainty of so many current situations. Here is a video of Sarah Bell (Head Girl) and Lennon Rutledge (Grade 10) singing their rendition of this emotional piece. I have attached the lyrics as well for your consideration.
I have asked Sarah and Lennon to give their personal comments on the context of this song:
Sarah says -I love this song and I loved singing it with Lennon. It was a little bit of a challenge when trying to figure out the lower harmonies, but in the end it was a beautiful piece. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed singing it! And thank you to Lennon for being a great partner ;)
Lennon adds - When I first listened to this song, I really loved the melody. I heard Sarah sing before I knew we were doing a duet together and I couldn’t wait to start practicing with her. I think being part of a musical like this it was such an amazing opportunity, and it was great to do it with Sarah. All the best to Sarah in her future. And thanks to her.
