Yes, music came into my life early on. The music teacher at my grade school had me sing a solo part with the senior choir. That always meant a lot to me and I will never forget it. When I stepped out from the main choir on the high school stage, there were some laughs in the audience. I guess they though I didn't know what I was doing, but they became very quiet when I started to sing. Yep, I was good way back in my youth. Through the years I sang in church choirs, barbershop quartets, spiritual quartets, and when I went to college, they must have been in need of tenors, because they wanted me to skip all the different choirs and join the European traveling choir. I turned them down. No way could I or my parents pay for that. Yes, we had to pay a lot toward the travel and lodging. I did join their main choir, the only freshman on it.
Now, I don't sing much anymore. Sometimes I pick up my guitar and pick something that I like to sing, but I have not kept up with my singing and I have lost my singing voice. I doubt, even if I tried, that I could get my singing voice back in shape, especially at my old age.
I covered this subject before, but a little differently in an older post:
Ok, you all hum or sing one of your favorite songs and have a good evening, you hear?
