The singing telegram business the path back to work.
What 2020 has been like for a performer in the singing telegram business. Let me start by saying I am happy that I and all my family and neighbours are still healthy and have made it through these crazy months in good health. Our path back to work was one of the utmost uncertainty. Can you imagine sitting there in March, racking your brain about the future of your performing stopped because you can’t be in the same room as strangers?
Everything was quiet for about a month. Out of the blue, I got a call to perform Happy Birthday and another song on a woman’s front lawn. The woman was turning 70 and watched the performance through her front window. I was in her front yard with a bunch of her neighbours who made sure she felt loved, remembered and appreciated on her birthday.
That one ladies’ 70th birthday was a start of what became a new area for performing. Over the next few months, until we entered stage 3, this was one of my primary income sources and performing.
Canadians are amazing. I’m fortunate to be working even part-time considering before this pandemic, and it’s restrictions, my approach to delivering singing telegrams have always been up close and personal.
This pandemic has changed not only many of our businesses but has helped to realign our priorities again. People looked out for one another and continue to as we exit the worst of it back into more open and public life again.
I want to close by thanking people who picked up the phone and called to book us. We are happy to perform and are proud to continue working for you.
