A Christmas Gift for Everyone



  • Please give yourself a treat and take the time to watch the attached 3 videos. The first one sets up the other two. I am so bummed this guy is married 🙂 AND he went to my alma mater - I believe at the same time I was there...if only I had joined the choir!

    Blessings,

  • Thank you very very much for this. I wasn't aware of it and it is indeed a great project.

    I am a soprano myself yet I don't sing classic music.

    This was very beautiful.

    Flow.



  • Hi Flow,

    You are welcome and Merry Christmas! It is very beautiful - brought tears to my eyes. I have always wanted to be able to sing like that....just open your mouth and have the voice of an angel come out 🙂

  • Hi WG,

    I think with dedication anyone can develop their voice to do anything. Because we all have unique sounds.

    So perhaps a new "project" for the new year?

    Merry Christmas and thank you again for the gift.

    Flow.



  • Flow - Hmmmm, now that's an interesting thought for the new year. You know, I can carry a tune better than most, but that's not really saying much 🙂 It would be nice to see if I can develop the singing muscle, though. Once I get my feet on the ground financially, I think I will look into it. So far my other "new" thing to try out in 2012 is getting serious about yoga. I actually prefer Pilates (with the Reformer machines), but my club charges extra for that and the yoga classes are included. So it sounds like yoga!

    Dmick - glad you enjoyed it 🙂 He is beautiful, isn't he? A girl can dream....



  • Yep he is and dreaming can be a good thing. He can't be the only one out there as all of those people believed in the project and participated.

    The harmony was so clear and true just unbelievable and kind of haunting in a good way.

    Thank you for sharing



  • WG - Perhaps I have an option for you to do at home when you are ready. You can start developping your singing muscle by doing vocal workout/warmups. I find this person the most relaxed and understandable to exercise with. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5CWsFaVnWM. What you can also try is a modern choir which meets up once a week to just have vocal fun. These are all ways that shouldn't cost you a dime. And when you are ready to part with your money...you can take up a teacher to fine tune. The vocal mileage is more important than the teacher.

    I tried Pilates and Yoga in the past and totally not my thing. That's why after being inspired I picked up my singing again to relax my mind. 😉



  • Thank you for sharing. Happy Holidays to all!



  • Thanks Flow!

    You're welcome CAK...glad you enjoyed it.



  • ABP - Sorry, missed your post last time. Glad you liked it 🙂

    Flow - I tried the link you provided last night and got an error. So I tried again today and got the same error. The thing is, the error message is so funny that I belly laughed for about 10 minutes last night. Made me laugh again today...Here it is:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR:

    Sorry, something went wrong.

    A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.

  • WG - OMG what is that????

    Okay the guy name is E r i c A r c e n e a u x ... I hope you can find it then look for lesson 1.

    I am pleased that I can help you out on a positive note before the year ends. 😉

    Flow.



  • Flow - Thanks! He is great and I will start with his breathing exercises. That error message is funny, isn't it? Anything with monkeys cracks me up so being told that "a highly trained team of monkeys has been dispatched" just made me roll!



  • WG - You're welcome.

    Yes, the message is indeed funny and has some truth to it too...LOL I enjoy creative minds and a good funny phrasing like that.

    The thing is when I clicked on the link here I got the homepage of u tube and not that message.

    Anyways...I am glad you got the right person. He has a great deal that can get you going for some time.

    I will be checking his exercises out again because I have the holidays to prep for an audition in the New Year. 😉



  • Hi watergirl18 - WOW... and thank you! What a beautiful gift...Flowsco linked me to your attachment and it is truly beautiful.
