By Adele Saka Miriam was on stage overcoming her stage freight. There were about 100 people watching her as she just stood there. She tried letting her voice out but nothing came out. She stood there until the backstage crew had to come out to get her and apologize to the audience. Months later, after Miriam had taken more lessons and performed in front of her family and small audience, she went back up on the same stage, except this time she was stronger. As she sang the last word there was not one person sitting and not clapping.
