One of my favorite songs as a kid was “Sing”. I loved the Carpenter’s version as well as Lea Salonga’s. However, no matter how much I loved to sing, singing never loved me back. Har. As a child, I still sang out loud, with not a care at all. I’d just go at it. In fact, I even joined a theater group for that! When I got older, I slowly became more self conscious about it and could not sing in front of others. This is why up to know, whenever we would have videoke nights, I would skip it. I felt that even a TC Helicon VoiceLive processor or synthesizer would not make a difference.
However, lately I have been catching myself singing aloud. A friend of mine took note of it and said it was a nice change. I realized that as part of my teacher training preps, I’m slowly letting go of being too self-conscious. I still can’t sing, but at least now I’m willing to give it a try
