The Voice

I must confess I am a bit addicted to performance competition shows like The Voice and American Idol.  I love to see emerging talent shine.  I think my attraction is wishing that I had pursued my singing more fully.  The truth was it was way too scarey to sing in front of groups when I was taking singing lessons in my 20s and 30s. To sing well, your body has to be completely open to allow the vibration to flow through.  That is both a physiological openess and a spiritual one.  I admire the young people who can be so open to sing from their hearts and souls in any arena, especially a big one like these shows.
