An 8-year Old Triumphs Over Adversity! A few weeks ago, this talented 8-year old decided to audition to sing a solo at the Kravis Center with the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches. We worked on his solo for about 3 sessions and during the third session I videotaped him so he could work on relaxed stillness. The following Tuesday his dad cancelled his lesson abruptly as Oliver wasn't feeling well. The next morning he had an emergency appendectomy, and missed his solo audition.
