PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OPEN DUETS! I'D BE HONORED IF YOU'D JOIN ME.
ANYONE READING THIS: WELCOME TO MY PROFILE AND TO MY ADDICTION!!! LOL This is a fantastic site. Trevor and all the staff have made this a place where we can not only fulfill our passions of singing and listening to great music, but we can make many new friends from all over the world. Thanks to Trevor and the whole SingSnap staff for being my enabler. Hehe!
MY MOTTO CONCERNING SINGING COMES FROM THE LYRICS OF A CARPENTERS SONG:
"SING! SING A SONG! SING OUT LOUD! SING OUT STRONG! DON'T WORRY THAT IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ANYONE ELSE TO HEAR. JUST SING! SING A SONG!"
THESE ARE THE AWARDS THAT MY PARTNER JOHHNYO AND MYSELF WON FOR THE "THIS SONG SHOULD'VE BEEN A DUET" CONTEST. IT WAS REQUIRED THAT WE RECORD MULTIPLE LAYERS OF HARMONY WITH THE SS PLAYER ALONG WITH AD LIB SPEAKING AND SINGING TO SHOW CREATIVITY.THANK YOU, JOHNNY, FOR INVITING ME TO SING WITH YOU IN THIS CONTEST.IT WAS AN HONOR.
HERE IS THE SONG WE RECORDED FOR ROUND ONE.
HERE ARE THE SONGS THAT WE RECORDED IN ROUND TWO.THE SECOND ONE IS UNNAMED ON THE PLAYER, BUT IT'S MICHAEL JACKSON'S I JUST CAN'T LIVE STOP LOVING YOU.
I'M SO SILLY!!!!!:
In SingSnap, I sing seriously, but I also sing "silly songs." I sing serious songs in a silly way, too. Sometimes, I start out to sing a song seriously and I get the giggles and it's so screwed up that it's too funny not to share with my friends. We have to laugh at ourselves and not take ourselves too seriously. I will never get paid to sing for money. I will never be a star, but I sure can have fun singing whether it's "seriously" or with some crazy cam acting as, what one friend has called me, "the SingSnap Carol Burnette." lol Here are some examples.
I'm Eighteen--Creed--Split Screen--Playing Two Characters
American Woman--The Guess Who--Me "Shaving" My Face
School's Out--Alice Cooper
ABOUT ME:(The boring part of my profile)
I used to be a high school marketing teacher. When I was laid off and got pregnant around the same time, I decided to be a stay-at-home mom. I don't regret it one bit. I have been married for 31 years as of August 1, 2011. I have two grown children, one of which has blessed us with four beautiful grandchildren.I hope to someday work from home on the computer in some capacity. I've thought about online tutoring or learning web design.There is always the job of professional SingSnapper, but it's not much of a profession if you don't get paid cash.
I was in the choir in high school and in the junior girl's ensemble. As a teen, I was part of our church's youth group. We went around to different churches in the area and sang folksy-type Christian music. When I went to college, I was part of a group called the I-Uppers out of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. We traveled anywhere and performed ethnic songs, dances and played instruments in costumes that are/were unique to particular ethnic/cultural groups. Of course, my real passion was, is, and always will be, singing. I have sung in church choirs, sung many solos for special music there and I have sung at a few weddings. Our church used to have a praise team of ten of which I was a member. We performed more modern, upbeat music than the traditional hymns. I won't go to a karaoke bar. Just not my type of atmosphere.
ABOUT DUETS WITH ME:
My open duets are just that...OPEN.Ya don't even have to ask. Just SING WITH ME. I love sharing music with everyone! Occasionally when I sing a duet with a person and it's special between us I may not want anyone to join us and I'd close the duet option so nobody else can join in, but that doesn't happen often. The more the merrier! Don't forget to send me the link or put the link on my song if you sing with me. I seldom check this public profile's "featured on" tab.
ABOUT RETURNING LISTENS:
I'm sure everyone would agree it takes a lot of time to listen to everyone who listens to us. You would not be truthful if you said you listen to every note of every song of 400 entries to a challenge and then leave a real comment. I don't think anyone could do that unless they skipped eating or bathroom visits.
Since my time at the computer has to be lessened these days for certain reasons, I have decided that I will listen to those who have taken the time to leave genuine comments and not copy and paste comments or who leave just a graphic. I will never do that when I listen to your songs. You will always get a comment from me that will show that I have listened and that comes from my heart. Unless you say copy and paste comments or graphics dropped on my song are the only way you can comment because of medical reasons, I will only return a listen to those leaving "real" comments. If you leave a graphic with a real comment that's fine, but please learn how to make the graphic small and not pictures of half-naked "angels," "rocker girls," or "cowgirls!" THOSE WILL BE DELETED.
Please believe me that I'm not trying to be mean. I'm a very nice person who feels, like many do on the site, that I would rather have you not listen at all than to not leave a different comment for me than you have for the next 20 people you visit.
You will also notice that I don't have my ratings on. It's just my opinion that ratings mean nothing. Everyone is so very nice here and I think if I just croaked into the mic like a frog I'd get a perfect 5 rating. lol The only time I leave my ratings on is when I'm singing a duet with someone because that person might like to be rated.
I don't rate others either. I just think that I'm not qualified to rate anyone. Everyone has their own ideas about what is "good." This is a great site for us ALL to satisfy our passion to sing. You don't have to sing well to have fun here. I don't want to be a star, not even a SingSnap star. I don't sing to get lots of comments. I just want to do what I love doing and sing well enough to make my online friends smile, laugh or feel a song in their souls.
AND THIS ENDS THE SEQUEL TO WAR AND PEACE. IF YOU READ THROUGH MY WHOLE PROFILE, THEN TREVOR NEEDS TO GIVE YOU A MONTH FREE. NOW YOU DIDN'T HEAR THAT FROM ME! HAPPY SINGING!!!
