Solo Ballard...!! HELP....

OK. In two weeks I will be playing solo tenor in a church for a weding. I have done this a few times already, but I'm looking for the altimate tune for a summer weding... So far I have played Summertime, Lover Man, and one other which I forget.. Now, I have a list of tunes, they are. 1. God Bless the child. 2. Misty. 3. Nature Boy. 4. Every time we say good bye. I like all of these, but I'm still not sure. Misty is at the top of the list simply because it's a longer tune with a middle eight and seems to fill the horn from top to bottom. It's also very easy to improvise around, so that I can extend it and fill the 5 mins or so. Has anyone else done something similar, and what tune did you play. Or can anyone suggest a good tune for the job. Thanks Paul.

    no R in ballad, it's ultimate, and wedding. sorry now that my spelling side is done.. Misty would be a very good tune. All the things you are would also be excellent. just pick one you really like and learn it NOW. you should have everything down pat a week in advanced. dont' take too long to chose your tune.

      Thanks for the spelling lesson, not one of my best subjects. I do know the tunes, it's just picking one. Thanks for the suggestion.
