Today’s Quote: Sing Loud and Proud Anyway

Today’s Quote: Sing Loud and Proud Anyway

When you were seven, you stood on risers in church with your cousin, Carla, and your friend, Pam, singing “Away in a Manger” for the brimming congregation. Afterward you ran down the aisle to find your mother. “Mom, how was it? Was I good?”

She beamed and circled her arms around you and said, “Oh, Honey, you were so loud.”

Savannah Maynard, a Charlotte, North Carolina paralegal and freelance writer, gracefully shares the inner longings and heartbreak of those of us who dream of making it big as singers – but can’t actually sing – in “The Fine Art of Singing Badly”.

I love this beautifully perceptive essay, which contains the hopes and dreams of every one of us who ever realized, belatedly, that we really never are going to get a singing part on Glee.

“Joy to the World” (also commonly known as “Jeremiah was a bullfrog”) is my absolute favorite song to sing badly.
