|St Jude's Episcopal Church|
Sadly I believed them and from that moment on I was very self-conscious of my voice. I loved singing but only sang alone or only to animals.
Lets fast forward 56 years...
Father Lee stood at the head of the church and announced that people could volunteer for the choir at the Elizabethan Tea on August 13. He specifically said we didn't have to sing well. A few weeks went by and the thought of singing and participating was intriguing to me and my heart was encouraging me to go for it. I did join the choir. I didn't know what soprano was or how to read the measures or the crescendo symbols but I am learning. I was told I was a soprano and sang the melody. While singing I heard my voice crack. I looked up a site on the Internet that helps you develop your voice with exercises. I began to practice and in a very short time my voice improved. I continue to practice and learn.
Last Sunday in church the lead member of the choir grabbed my hand and told me " I was so proud of you at practice last Thursday." Like an angel she continued to hold my hand and look into my eyes. My mind and body felt this surge of healing energy and my heart opened. At that moment I realized I could sing all along and that it was my perception and belief that kept me silent for so long.
Today I am taking my CD player with the 2 hymns we are singing outside by the llamas and I will practice getting those few high notes and iron out the cracks while I sing the hymns. I love singing to my animals and I will also love singing at the Elizabethan Tea August 13! What a miracle.
There are many videos on You Tube that will train your voice to sing better. Here are 2 that I use.
