I 'm a Terrible Singer, But I Love to Do It

    I'll be honest. I think

    that I'm such a good singer, but when I record my voice or make a video I sound DISGUSTING. I would usually lurk around on YouTube or Vine just to hear other people sing out their voices, especially hear the way they sing my favorite songs and my self esteem would just go low. I...

    Wouldn't necessarily say terrible,

    but I'm also not going to claim trained and perfect' nonetheless, it makes me happy to sing now. Having to learn and recant nursery rhyme songs etc public ally and daily to entertain little ones breaks down any inhibitions!!

    I'm really truly awful.

    Think dying cat parade on fire. But I always sing like nobody is watching. In the car, in the shower, while i'm cooking, heck even when i'm out walking! I get some funny looks but who cares! I'm having fun and nobody should be judged for being happy :)

    You ever just sat there singing your heart out,

    thinking you killing the song and doing it justice.. thinking you're the next beyonce or mariah carey hitting all the right pitches. Then someone comes in and bursts that bubble telling you "I thought a cat was fighting in here" then one day you test your theory, you record...

    I hav joined a choir at work,

    and have sung some beautiful choral works, the Mozart Requiem, Haydyn's Creation. My favourite was the Brahms Deutsches Requiem. I am a rubbish singer but I love being part of something much bigger.

    I'm Bad

    I love to sing, but sadly no one likes my singing.Β  I'm told I can't sing, but everyone can sing, some just better then others.

    Went to a girlfriends 40th two years ago

    and found myself (miraculously not) with the 'mic' in my hand singing for dear life, only to have the DJ politely take it it from me and place it on the table. He saved them all that night, including me.

    Even though my heritage is Welsh,

    I am certainly no Tom Jones! But, I did pick up a trick that helped me get back on key... When you are singing to the radio or a friend has forced you to sing Karaoke (after a few drinks, of course...) put your finger in your ear... As soon as you do that, you're no longer...

    I LOVE to sing along in the car with the radio

    or my favorite CDs. One time I was singing in the drive thru at McDonald's restaurant and I frightened the man at the window. It was really funny.

    Whenever I'm happy I sing.

    People say I sing very well but I know that I don't hit notes properly and I find trouble with loosing breath because of lack of skill of right breathing during singing. I know a lot about singing because my mum sings a lot and she is in a church choir. She tried to help me...

    Mostly While Driving

    Some people like to sing when in the shower, but me, I like to sing in the car. I don't really know why but something about driving or riding around with the music up loud and being able to sing at the top of your lungs is just completely freeing and envigorating.

    I used to be a good singer,

    was in a choir then a singing group and an acapella group, but after a year or so I feel like im not as good as I used to be and haven't sung properly infront of someone in ages. Of course I still have my little musical moments when I add a little shrill or extra musical...
