When I was a kid, I sang often, just because. My mother would only let me listen to tv and Christian music, so often I sang commercial jingles. One day, a girl who was listening to me, during school, said in a snide way, "Why do you sing so much?" "Because," I said. "It's annoying," she said. I was otherwise a quiet, pious kid, so I stopped singing in front of other people.
I always sang, alone. It was like stealing, like I was doing something I was not suppose to do. But I sang anyway, though I held my voice back, like if I let it out too much I might get in trouble. LOL. Then I met a woman who was a singer, and I felt bad that I had not the experince or the courage to sing with her, to make music with her.
So then, alone one day, I said, I will sing as loud as I want to sing. I will see what my voice is capable of.
I offer this to you now, not because I think I am some great singer, but because, in the words of Shree Dove, "When the core starts to ring, and I start sing, you all know that I ain't no joke."
