Ever notice how many successful singers decide to go try acting – and vice versa – with varying levels of success?
While sometimes I love it (Barbara Streisand!), and sometimes I loathe it (LeAnn Rimes, Lindsay Lohan, et al), I actually understand it. After all, can you think of any kids back in high school who were in drama but NOT in choir or chorus as well?
That’s why – even as I secretly wait for a juicy behind-the-scenes scandal to break – I have legitimate happiness for all of the kids on Glee, who just finished up their season and are prepping to go on a singing summer tour. They are literally living the dream so many celebrities have tried to achieve – singing, dancing and acting all at once. In short – they are performers.
And, in my mind, we PR peeps are no different.
In short – we are communicators.
Through public relations as it is today, we report on news, perform creative writing, pitch media, act as spokespeople, plan event, blog, strategize and more – sometimes all in the same day.
Just like the kids on Glee, we get to do it all today.
I think that’s worth a happy dance or song at your desk today.
Anyone care to post theirs? I will if you will!!
