for Solo Mezzo-soprano (unaccompanied)
Reality Check is a haunting melody for mezzo alone. The text deals with the thoughts of a woman who's unsure about a having a child. She listens to the cries of a baby living upstairs. The piece is very sad and tender. It lasts about 3 minutes and the mezzo range is G#, 4th space bass clef, to G on top of treble clef.
