Holding Out for a Hero

“Holding Out for a Hero” was written by Jim Steinman and Dean Pitchford and originally recorded by Bonnie Tyler for the movie “Footloose” (though I’m more familiar with the version that was in “Shrek 2”).

What do dolphins have to do with this song? Nothing, really, except timing. My family recently went on a dolphin cruise (it was great! Chase-N-Fins in Pensacola, FL) and I finally finished editing this song! I recorded it quite a few years ago to practice for an audition and I’ve been on the fence about whether it’s worth sharing or not, as a high belt is very difficult for me! This is my best attempt.

So, I hope you enjoy this #WeeklyWednesday’s somewhat odd combination of themes (though I like the idea of a dolphin hero ?)!

Thanks, as always, for supporting my work ?

    I wanted you to know that Teri’s son, heard you on the Chritmas meeting and said that he loved your voice. He wanted to here show tunes. I was on this page, and saw that I had not heard this song. I think it is great. Love, Mary Anne
