What would you say if I told you that one thing I’ve always wanted to do was sing? I don’t just mean at home with a hairbrush. And I mean sing in tune and in a way that someone else might want to listen.
In addition, I made a promise to someone that I’d sing something bluesy for his 40th birthday. OK so he’s a few years past 40 now but perhaps I can surprise him for his 50th?
It’s on my bucket list. My ‘living bucket list’. I’d better make it happen.
OMG I just put that in ink, didn’t I?
Anyway I contacted a singing coach and tonight’s entertainment was a showcase opportunity for some of her students to perform. I watched in awe of the people who got on stage. I also felt sick that I’ve set myself this challenge.
There’s a video from tonight’s show which demonstrates the different ages, different singing styles and different levels of confidence – do take a minute to see the show (particularly the young girl at 0:56 and the 13 year old at 2:00 who were both awesome).
As for me, watch this space. Eeeek
