I don't usually watch television much, but I decided to see what was on.
I got on channel 6 and Lawrence Welk was on, the theme for his program was remembering the Big Bands — Leo Brown, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey to name a few.
I enjoyed the music, brought memories flooding back. I used to sing along with who even was singing on the radio and told myself I was really good when even I managed to hit the high notes.
This practicing also helped me feel better, because I enjoyed doing it and my voice was better when I sang in the choir, the difference in range. I went from second soprano to first.
Now I don't think I can hit the side of the barn with a basketball.
But hey, I can still carry a tune — in a bucket. I still sing along and just call it singing. I love music.
It's another way of praying. Sing a song because music makes a difference in how you feel.
Try it, you'll like it.
