My voice instructor and I have been trying to find something I feel confident singing. We’ve done “The Bare Necessities,” “The Sound of Music” (I might be confused on that one) and “Indian Love Call.” If you know me, you probably know how much I love to wail the last two songs. As for the “Bare Necessities,” we had a record that we listened to over and over and over again as a child. I have my own, “special” way of singing that, too. But today we hit gold, actually it was “Fields of Gold” by Sting. We sang the song in a higher range than Sting does. I didn’t realize how much easier it was for me to sing higher until I put the song on in the car afterward. Using my chest voice with my pallet lifted is very hard for me.
My instructor is going to do a Benefit Concert for Team in Training. You should come enjoy the concert and contribute to the cause!
