Hey, ya'll. I'm just doing this for fun. Hope you are, too.
I have some Open Duets if you're interested. Take a look! Also, if there are any duets you wish to do, send me a link to yours or request one you don't see. I'm willing to learn if I don't already know it.
A special thank you to my sponsor. (You know who you are.) Your sponsorship means a lot to me.

EXTRA! EXTRA!

A topic keeps coming up among my friends, "How can I clear my vocal chords/throat for singing?"

First, you need to know what you are asking. The only way to heal your vocal chords (aside from going to a doctor for professional options) is water, water, water. It must be ingested.

Now, remedies for a cloudy throat, well, that is a different matter.

There have been many tricks that have been passed down through many generations: tea with lemon to cut the goo, tea with honey to sooth the throat, alcohol to cleanse the pallet, throat spray to (whatever, don't use throat spray, it's nasty) - none of which touch the vocal cords.

All of the above, are items that are swallowed and swallowing "... lifts your voicebox into a crunch creating a “clamp” around your vocal cords triggering the epiglottis to lower over it. This seals off the passage way into your voicebox so the food or liquid that your body is preparing to take in slides across the back of the epiglottis, over the voicebox, safely into your “food pipe” (esophagus) that eventually drops into your stomach." (Random website find - http://www.3rdvoice.com/blog/how-to-sing-without-strained-vocal-cords)

Bottom line: Vocal chords work best when hydrated and rested. Gooey throat... well every wife has her tale.
