Singing connected with movements and action is a much more ancient, and, at the same time, more complex phenomenon than is a simple song.
My singing voice is somewhere between a drunken apology and a plumbing problem.
Singing is a way of escaping. It's another world. I'm no longer on earth.
Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don't understand the language that you're singing in, they still know good music when they hear it.
I started singing about three years ago, I entered a local singing competition called Stratford Idol. The other people in the competition had been taking singing lessons and had vocal coaches. I wasn't taking it too seriously at the time, I would just sing around the house. I was only 12 and I got second place.
I'm not looking for career attention, for more success, more money. I'm just singing songs I chose because I love them.
There's nothing wrong with the screaming style of singing, and I'll be the first to admit that it conveys an emotion. But I'm getting older, and I can't scream and shout about the same things anymore. The songs I'm writing with Stone Sour call for a lighter, different approach.
I grew up across the street from, you know, the Villarias, which was a great Mexican family there. In fact, there was three houses right across the street from me. So, day and night, I listened to Mexican music, and I'm sure, you know, my guitar playing, singing, writing, whatever, has a lot of Mexican flavor there, but it comes natural.
I've never been more nervous in my life than singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl.
I hate straight singing. I have to change a tune to my own way of doing it. That's all I know.
Pure entertainment is not an egotistical lady singing boring songs onstage for two hours and people in tuxes clapping whether they like it or not. It's the real performers on the street who can hold people's attention and keep them from walking away.
When you're singing you can hear the echo of people in the audience singing every single word with you, and that was that big dream that I had for myself. It's happening.
When you're all singing together, it brings things together. I know the songs that my grandfather and my father sang.
The colored folks been singing it and playing it just like I'm doin' now, man, for more years than I know. I got it from them.
I like to sing ballads the way Eddie Fisher does and the way Perry Como does. But the way I'm singing now is what makes the money.
I've been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen, and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I've had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.
I think people who don't believe in God are crazy. How can you say there is no God when you hear the birds singing these beautiful songs you didn't make?
Singing provides a true sense of lightheartedness. If I sing when I am alone, I feel wonderful. It's freedom.
Use the creative process - singing, writing, art, dance, whatever - to get to know yourself better.
You have to respect your audience. Without them, you're essentially standing alone, singing to yourself.
K. D. Lang
There is the morass, wherein you plunge up to your knees, or the walking over the stubborn, dwarfish shrubbery, whereby one treads down the forests of Labrador; and the unexpected bunting or sylvia which perchance, and indeed as if by chance alone, you now and then see flying before you, or hear singing from the ground creeping plant.
John James Audubon
Well, you know, people don't know me as a country artist and I am new to the genre. But that's how I grew up singing.
I'm from a working-class family. We didn't have a lot, but we had the arts. You're talking to a guy who is making a living at doing what he loves doing - acting, singing and dancing. So any career ups and downs were not that significant to me; the only things that really powerfully impinged on me were my losses, and there were many in my life.
It's amazing when you're playing to a crowd who barely understands English but they're singing parts of your song back to you.
I always felt that I would become somebody outstanding, whether it was in singing, instrumental playing, orchestra conducting, or anything involving feeling.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
