Ginger, thank you. The voice is a lovely instrument. Listening to someone who can sing beautifully accapella is wonderful. I sang in a church choir for awhile. I find singing helps me feel good and lifts my spirits, and anyone can do this. Like the line from the Carpenter's song… "Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear… just sing…sing a song….."

I love that Carpenter's song, it's one of my favorites! I had vocal cord surgery several years ago to deal with a paralyzed vocal cord and after that a speech therapist suggested that I sing as part of a plan to keep my vocal cords strong. So I joined a therapy choir. As you have interest in the arts as way of healing you might enjoy this information about Therapy Choirs of Michigan, http://therapychoirs.org/

Here is an article from a local newspaper about one of the exceptional members of the choir, Gary Francis, https://www.hometownlife.com/story/opinion/columnists/2017/08/09/inspiration-look-farmington-hills-listen-singing/104370448/ I assist Gary is getting "gigs" at local softball games where he sings the National Anthem and at assited living facilities where he sings the oldies music (and the residents sing with him). I call myself his agent, however, there is no money involved, just the fun of helping.

Gary Francis is an exceptional example of someone who is singing for the health of it~
