One of my least favourite things about having a cold is losing the little ability I have to sing. It may be said, and truthfully, that I'm not a fantastic singer to start with. But I love to sing, I think I'm not abysmal at it, and losing that is not nice. I'm trying, but I'm just croaking!

I've been saying for years that I need to start having singing lessons again, or get involved with a choir... but so many things get in the way! Time, money, energy. Maybe I'm just making excuses for myself. Perhaps I should just bite the bullet and do it. What think thee?

I say just do Nike style ;-)

I can sing...not like Mariah Carey but I've got a decent voice and I have performed in public. I joined a prayer centre a long time ago and it was in there that I found my voice :)

DO IT! Life's too short to miss out on the things you want to do. ;-)

ps. Expect to hear you trilling shortly!

Hi Stace,

Do it, its just a google search away. Alturnatively you could join the RMIT choir, but they are a bit odd. I promise not to sing.

I've always loved to sing, Stace, but I never REALLY sang seriously until I gave my heart to the Lord in my early 20's. I've not stopped since! *grin* Well, except for occasional bouts of laryngitis. I sing at weddings, funerals, and other events, though as I am getting older I do these less frequently and that is okay.
People say my voice is similar to the likes of Bette Midler, Karen Carpenter, Bonnie Rait, Carol King. I've lost some of my range, but thankfully I can transpose/change keys easily, so I just lower the songs. I play piano/keyboards/organ, too. Music is such wonderful, wonderful therapy. You definitely need to pursue singing!
