This Is The Moment

Last 2 Verses

This is the moment –
My final test –
Destiny beckoned,
I never reckoned,
Second Best!

I won’t look down,
I must not fall!
This is the moment,
The sweetest moment of them all!

This is the moment!
Damn all the odds!
This day, or never,
I’ll sit forever 
With the gods!

When I look back,
I will always recall,
Moment for moment,
This was the moment,
The greatest moment 
Of them all!

Many years ago, I was given the CD of the music from the Broadway show, Jekyll & Hyde.  My entire family enjoyed listening to the music and each one of us had our favorite song.  It was fun learning more about the talented man who had that exciting music in his soul.

Frank Wildhorn was born in New York and taught himself the piano while in high school.  His interest was varied and he wrote and performed music ranging from Rock & roll to Rhythm &

Blues to Jazz.  He graduated from The University of Southern California where he began writing Jekyll & Hyde.

When I first heard Clay Aiken sing, I always hoped that I might hear him perform This Is The Moment, from Jekyll & Hyde.  When I found out he sang it at the Pieces of Gold Show in Raleigh, I was not surprised.  I was thrilled when he sang it again in Raleigh at the Bringing Broadway Home concert on June 21, 2010.  It was wonderful to hear one of my favorite songs performed by my favorite singer.
