We're going to do Amy Winehouse.The song's called Valerie. We'll do it first. We'll talk about it after, likewe always do. Let's rock! Amy Winehouse. Whooh! Nice job, girl! Man, that was good.Thank you. All right, so basically, we're doing a lotof different stuff, from Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouseâ€¦ And what's interestingabout this is not so much that we're just doing a bunch of cover songs, but it's howTori finds herself in the song, and actually
represents that art with her own touch, herown flair, but to be able to sing in a lot of different styles, because what this doesis to give you a lot of tools for your toolbox for singing. So, we're going to be working upon, actually, some original material, too, so be watching out for that. Anyway, this is KenTamplin Vocal Academy.

Lessons from the Mental Glennon Doyle Melton TEDxTraverseCity
Hi. I have been trying to weasel my way outof being on this stage for weeks. (Laughter) I am terrified. But about a month ago, I was up early,panicking about this, and I watched an old TED Talkthat Brené Brown did on vulnerability. Brown is one of my heroes. She is a shame researcher,
and I am a recoveringbulimic, alcoholic, and drug user. So I'm sort of a shame researcher, too. (Laughter) It's just that most of my workis done out in the field. (Laughter) And Brown defined courage like this. She said, quot;Courage is to tell the storyof who you are with your whole heart.quot; That got me thinking
about another one of my heroes,Georgia O'Keeffe, and how she said,quot;Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant. There is no such thing. Making the unknown knownis what is important.quot; So, here I am to tell you the storyof who I am with my whole heart, and to make some unknowns known. When I was eight years old,I started to feel exposed, and I started to feel very, very awkward.
Every day, I was pushed outof my house and into school, all oily, and pudgy, and conspicuous, and to me the other girls seemedso cool, and together, and easy, and I started to feel like a loserin a world that preferred superheroes. So I made my own capes,and I tied them tight around me. My capes were pretending and addiction. But we all haveour own superhero capes, don't weé Perfectionism, and overworking,snarkiness, and apathy;
they are all superhero capes. Our capes are what we putover our real selves, so that our real tender selvesdon't have to be seen and can't be hurt. Our superhero capes are what keep usfrom having to feel much at all, because every good and bad thingis deflected off of them. So, for 18 years, my capes of addiction and pretendingkept me safe and hidden. People think of us, addicts,as insensitive liars,
but we don't start out that way. We start outas extremely sensitive truthtellers. We feel so much pain and so much love, and we sense that the worlddoesn't want us to feel that much, and doesn't want to needas much comfort as we need, so we start pretending. We try to pretend like we're the peoplethat we think we're supposed to be. We numb, and we hide, and we pretend,
