My daughter Eva goes to a State school in Moscow, Russia. She was asked to sing a song in English at the Christmas party a few years ago. As I helped her practice Silent Night, I began to understand that they were teaching her the wrong melody. When she performed the song in front of a few hundred children, she sang so quietly (even with a microphone near her) that no one would know what a wonderful voice she has. I decided to record a duet in our living room, a postcard home for friends and family. Now, we plan duets for random holidays, sitting in the kitchen reinterpreting songs old and new. I think of this as a time capsule she will be able to look back on when she is older.
