Singing a new kind of song

Well... I have branched out into the jazz world. A no-word, low-singing, scatting, kind of improv type of thing... Well the notes and suggested "words" were written out and it was up to me to provide the "style". I practiced with the CD for days.

Here's how it went... I was skeered spitless. I am a classical type of singer. A soprano for goodness sakes. But I LOVE rhythm and blues. I love jazz. I always wished I could do what I was asked to do Friday night.

And I DID IT!!! It was deep and soulful and LOW and fun. The other choir members called me "Ella." HAHA. This may be the beginning of some new musical exploration. But I can't sing that low for very long... it is a little stressful on my voice. But I can't deny that I was way relieved for it to be gone and done and given the chance again - I'd do it again.

And apparently DH liked it, too, as I was told by some friends that I needed to come home and sing some more to him. ;)

Miss thing! It was awesome. Of course I had to not pay too much attention to you or I would lost track of my own boop bops, etc.. Ha! I loved hearing you sing that low and it sounded fantastic!
