Sing, sing a song

by | Sep 22, 2013 | daily prompt

Tell us about a talent you’d love to have… but don’t.

I would like to have a good voice to sing opera and musicals and spend my life performing the great music I adore. Be Cenerentola, Carmen, Rossina, Marguerite, Mignon or the great musical female characters on stage… But I have a little weak voice and I have never been selected to sing a solo in my life. Better that way because I also have stage panic. So, a complete disaster.

I have a friend who is now an opera singer, a baritone. We were together in the University choir. We had the same opportunities but he had the voice and the talent and I didn’t. And now his whole life is devoted to his music. That would be my impossible dream.

In real life, with my weak voice I can always

Sing a song.
Sing out loud, sing out strong.
Sing of good things, not bad.
Sing of happy, not sad.
Sing a song.
Make it simple to last your whole life long.
Don´t worry that it´s not good enough for anyone else to hear.
Just sing.
Sing a song.

    Reading the lyrics to that song, I can hear it in my head as clearly as if The Carpenters were blaring on the AM radio. I guess we should be thankful there are some people in the world with that talent or there wouldn’t be anything worth listening and remembering.

    Thank you for sharing this today. You made me smile.
