Matchmaker, Matchmaker

Today I interviewed Jassah, who is part of team B, about her private vocals.

Me: What song are you singing?

Jassah: I am singing Matchmaker with Jennifer and Nia. Matchmaker is from the musical Fiddler on the Roof.

Me: What is the song about?

Jassah: The song is about three girls who are Jewish and they have a matchmaker named Yente who finds husbands for them. This whole song is about how Chava and Hodel want a perfect match, but Tzietel tells them by impersonating Yente to tell them that they can’t always get what they want. At the end of the song they realize that getting married isn’t such a wonderful thing.

Me: Is there any acting in your song?

Jassah: Yes. There is a dialogue before the song begins, and also in the middle.

Me: Are you nervous about singing with only two other people?
Jassah: A little bit, because if I have two other people, I’m okay.
