Crazy for Brandi Carlile
This is my first attempt to make an iMovie, so it's anything but perfect, but it was a fun project (and I'll do just about anything to put off grading papers). This is Brandi Carlile's solo cover of Patsy Cline's "Crazy" (written by Willie Nelson, actually). She and her band did their own acoustic opening set and then the Seattle Symphony came onstage. "Crazy" was the last song of the set, so at the beginning of the recording, that's Brandi joking that she will be going backstage to don her evening gown with rhinestones. I recorded the song at Benaroya Hall 11-21-10 with my iPhone, so ... you know.
The woman has pipes. Crazy pipes.
