Voice is all about breath. Whatever we do in life causes our ideas to expand and grow.
This breath brought about the life in the beginning can be all about magic.
Voice is what all singers have and is what empowers them.
They have the power to halt and the power to soar.
There was a pepsi song long ago that mentioned, "we will teach the world to sing in perfect harmony."
Voice is that stage for singers and is what empowers them.
They have the power to halt and the power to soar the audience. To bring us to a moment's rapture and then to a moment's pause.

first one at the Arena at Harbor Yard was to see Sarah Brightman. That
summer our family rented a cottage in Maine and on one of the shelves

Blown Away tour which had images shot on the screen of houses and
possessions being blown away by hurricanes. Being swept up into the
magic of the moment. And fantastic images of words and pictures
perfectly themed to the music being presented.

is what brings about that all about. To that we need to gather more to
unite our voices and create magical moments. I did that when I was in
elementary school and we got to sing in a vocal concert. Our class sang a
couple of numbers and I had fun memorizing the songs and then singing
them. And after the concert, I was exhausted from singing and to relax
my voice, my Mom made me hot chocolate so I could relax at the kitchen
table and reflect on how much fun I had.
