Sing your Sox off ;) !


Sing your sox off πŸ˜‰ !

I have always loved singing, can I sing ? who am I to judge , but love it, I do. It started in school assembly, when I longed for the next hymn or song to be sung to stop the Headmasters waffling s ;). I was chosen to sing solo in a school production of Charlie and the Chocolate factory, with role as the Shopkeeper than on Orange Umpa Lumpa, not sure if it was due to my dulcet tone or my ability to be heard !!!

Singing in Church on a Sunday, carol singing locally and hymns getting more modern and meaningful to me confirmed my enjoyment.

Moving to Spain, I haven’t had the opportunity to sing, well only in the shower πŸ˜‰Β  So I was delighted to hear a dear friend of mine, Cheryl had taken the initiative with a Music academy on the coast The International Nelson Music Academy, to form ‘Funky Vocals’ a funky singing group open to anyone & everyone.

On Saturday, together with number 1 daughter, we joined the group for our taster session, we were made most welcome. Feeling a little daunted whether we would cut the mustard or not, this was soon put to rest, when we started the session with fun vocal exercises to warm the vocal chords and break the ice. Soon we were ‘Singing our sox off’ ..with cool tunes like ‘ Aint no mountain high enough’ ‘ Mama Mia ‘ and ‘Any dream will do’ 2 hours flew by, smiles all around , we were left feeling elated and a little exhausted what a work-out.

Since returning home, the house has been filled with humming and singing from ‘Teen’ No 1 daughter, and little ‘Noo’ (8 years old) picking up our song sheets, and saying ‘How does it go Mum ?’

Music, singing, what great therapy, sounds for your soul…

Can’t wait to go again soon, hey and keep a look out I could be on a stage near you soon πŸ˜‰
