I should have let you know, oh well it's too late now: my quartet was singing on Global TV this morning on the a.m. show - showing off our Valentine songs. Maybe they'll post it on their web site next week. Sweet Adeline's....
It's only been three weeks since we started practising - although the three other members of my barbershop quartet - have sung together for years.
What a treat - to start the morning with someone doing your make-up and hair! Then many sound checks, and vocalizing warm-ups, before standing under the bright lights and performing our two Valentine songs.
I love to sing - the tenor part is challenging but sounds so pure and crystal clear when the voice is 'on' and warmed up. With rich baritone, bass and lead singing beautiful harmonies, voices melding richly, it's yummy!
I love singing, have always loved singing, and pure joy comes out of it, when we get it right. It's good for the heart.
Have a lovely Valentine's Day. Give someone you love a treat and sing them a love song, straight into their eyes!
