SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: TRISH NIGHTENGALE- SL’S NEXT COUNTRY MUSIC DIVA - JOSH (THOMAS1
I have always been a fan of County Music. Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, (and his son, Junior), Tammy
Wynette – All would regularly belt out their tunes from the Radio in my Ford Ranchero. Since before
David Allan Coe noted that the perfect country song would include “momma, trains, trucks, prison &
getting drunk”, Country Music had captured the hearts and minds of people world-wide.
Recently I was privileged to enjoy the dulcimer tones of oomissoootrishoo.nightingale, one of
SecondLife’s newest live country singers. I caught up with Miss Nightengale while she was
relaxing following a recent concert. She graciously agreed to answer a few questions, the
answers to which I now share with you, the SL Enquirer reader.
Josh (Thomas1 Bellic) (JB): So, tell me, Trish. How did you initially develop an interest in Singing?
oomissoootrishoo.nightingale (MT) I have been singing since I was just a toddler. My dad's side of the
family all sing (most of them yodel) and I used to love hearing my dad sing so much that I started trying
to sing with him to the radio. I got into choir in the 5th grade at school and have continued singing all of
my life along to the radio or in karaoke bars or on-line karaoke.
JB: Do you perform as a Singer in RL? Maybe in a Church choir, or in the kitchen? Or in the shower?
MT: I sing at karaoke bars sometimes and am always singing along to the radio or just belting out a
song in the shower or while cleaning without any music. My poor husband and kids must be tired of
hearing me sing by now!! haha
JB: How did you first come to learn about Second Life?
MT: I was in a Singsnap room on paltalk and my friend Arra kept mentioning having concerts she had
to do later that night. I said that I wished that I lived near her so that I could hear her in concert. She
told me that it was not IRL that it was in second life and I could make a free account and come hear her
sing so that is what I did.
JB: How did you decide to be a Vocalist in SL?
