To Sing or Not to Sing

Feb 27, 2020

I guess I’ll talk about my singing. I’ve never been able to hear myself sing. I never have sung very much. When I saw the chorus here, I went up to the director and asked her if she would tell me was I a soprano or a bass. She looked at me and said, “Well, next week maybe.”

Next week, I went back and she saw me coming and she packed her bags and left. I can’t blame her. Now, the second time I tried was over in Methodist. I have a defective brain, so I couldn’t get into this brain program. I was in arts. One of the arts was singing. I went to the singing director and asked her if she would tell me was I a bass or a soprano. She said, demonstrating in a falsetto voice, she said, “I don’t really know where you belong.”

I took that and meditated on it a few hours. Then I went back and sat down and I was relieved because that’s the end of my singing career. I was accepted. But I wasn’t singing. Once we had a performance and we had to get dressed, so I didn’t. That’s when I quit. I mean, I would just go there and then move my mouth.
