Member Mondays - Featuring: Lisa Hawkins!
Meet…Lisa "Disney" Hawkins
All things Cape Harmony!
Q: How did you hear about Cape Harmony?
A: “I saw a Facebook ad and I had no plans after I graduated, so I thought, why not?”
Q: What do you think of Cape Harmony so far as a new member?
A: “I think it’s a really awesome environment because, for one I’ve never been in an all female a cappella group before so this is a really new experience for me. I also think its great because it’s summer and we don’t have school, so we can focus solely on a cappella.”
Q: Why did you pick Glitter in the Air by Pink as your solo for the summer?
A: “When Natalie said to pick one top 40, I felt like many top 40 songs are very high energy and are catered towards bright timbre and soprano range. I have a very dark timbre and was having a hard time picking a pop song that had that sort of color, and I thought that 'Glitter in the Air' fit that very well in terms of range and emotional intensity.”
Q: What are you goals for the rest of the summer in CH?
A: I think my goal is to learn as much as I can, cause I’m really passionate about a cappella and want to make a career out of it, and this is a great way to learn about different types of a cappellla and learn about the business of a cappella, too.
Q: As a native of Alaska, what’s been the most surprising thing about life on the Cape?
A: The humidity, but I didn't notice how humid it is until I realized how fast food goes stale, and how slow things dry. I’d never experienced stale cereal before.”
More About Lisa!
Q: What was the last gift you gave someone?
A: "I have a friend who’s obsessed with pizza, and I gave her pizza earrings and pizza socks."
Q: How would your best friend describe you?
A: “I actually texted her, and she said ‘you’re easygoing, fun to be around, and one of the best people to have as a friend once you cracked your shell.’”
Q: If you could be one age forever, what age would you be and why?
A: “21, because you’re old enough to do everything, but you don’t feel old.”
Q: What’s your most embarrassing moment?
A: "Probably, when I was in a theater, and I was in the aisle seat and was trying to get out and I tripped on my own seat and went face first into the aisle. Everyone just looked at me and laughed."
Q: Tell me your ideal date in a haiku.
A: “On a warm, clear night
with some blankets on the beach
watch the sun go down”
Q: How do you like to spend a rainy day?
A: “At home, watching a classic Disney movie…so if it’s raining, guys, feel free to join me for a Disney movie.”
Q: What’s your favorite midnight snack?
A: "Chips, just because they fill you up and are satisfying in terms of flavor."
Q: Would you rather be a giant rodent or a tiny elephant?
A: "Tiny elephant, for sure. That’s like a teacup pig, but better."
Q: If you were president, what’s the first thing you would do?
A: “I’d resign. That seems like a very stressful job. Also, I’m not of legal age to become president.”
Q: If you could go on a road trip with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be and where would you go?
A: "I would go on a roadtrip with Amy Schumer, because she's hilarious and I feel like she would make any sort of situation a great story. And, we'd go to Disney World, obviously.
