  PERFORMANCE TIPS:

Song style/genre: Up tempo, jazzy comic song

Key(s): D minor to A major

Note range (Low/High): A below middle C to D an octave above middle C

About the song: This swing-beat, jazzy piece is my version of the Cinderella story, in which you find out what kind of advice a very modern, keep it real Fairy Godmother would give to poor Cindy the title says it all. The song should resonate with many in your audience. There’s an inside joke here: my father, Jerry Livingston, wrote the music for Disney’s CINDERELLA.

Gender point of view: The Fairy Godmother character can be sung by a man or woman, I would say. After all, the message of the song is to break out of those little boxes.

Awards: Second place in the "Jazz" category of the 8th Billboard Song Contest (1998)
