Oh, you mean professional singers… I just sing for my own enjoyment and I like to think I’m good, but I’m scared that I’m like those people on “American Idol,” although I have taken *some* voice lessons. I’m sorry I have no video or soundbites. Also, I have some verses strung together, but no real songs yet worth mentioning. So yeh, kind of pathetic in that department. ๐Ÿ™‚ How did you decide to pursue music? Is that your actual career? If so, I’m jealous of your guts!!

I sing : ) Not professionally or anything, just in churches, school plays and for the fun of it. I guess I’m good at it. I took voice lessons for 4 years and I was in my high school choir for just as long. I still like to sing, but now it’s mostly to myself, or the animals. They don’t seem to mind : )

I don’t have any recording though, or youtube videos…

My fiance writes/record music, and we both like to sing, though it’s just for fun. We’ve never had voice lessons. I’ve been in some form of a choir since the 8th grade, and now I help direct the church choir. FI is actually going to practice with a band tonight, they’re thinking about adding him on keys. ๐Ÿ™‚

I sing in a show chorus ,and I’m a director. I went to music school out of college. I don’t do this professionally, but we do get paid, so I guess it is semi-professional.

I don’t think we have any of our music on YouTube because we are very careful about ASCAP fees and things like that. I will check, though!

I do. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have always been a singer and songwriter but I never went anywhere with it because I HATE performing. ๐Ÿ™  I have incredible stage fright.

Heatherrobyn do you have any videos of you singing? I’d love to hear you.

I can share my old myspace music account if anyone wants to hear….

I sing!! I was going to school for theatre but I chickened out and ended up switching majors.

I studied voice with the same teacher that Josh Groban studied voice with when he went to Carnegie Mellon University. He only went to CMU for 4 months, that is because Josh was offered a recording contract and my voice coach told him to leave school and do it now.

I haven’t sang in a few years but I am trying to get back in action, I really want to sing the National Anthem at Console Energy Arena (where the Pittsburgh Penguins play.)

I sing and write music. No youtube videos b/c I don’t like singing in public. I sing when I “have” to..like when I am trying to explain how a song I have written should be performed or at church (thanks mom). It’s a family “thing”. I actually have a sister who has recorded some songs and currently has one available for purchase on itunes. For her, it’s a passion. For me, it’s a talent that I have but don’t really do a whole lot with.

I sing whenever I get the chance. I’ve never had any formal training, but I do have perfect pitch so I guess that helps. I’ve sung in choirs and I do a ton of musical theatre. Just wrapped up a Gilbert and Sullivan show this past weekend, singing Buttercup in H.M.S. Pinafore.

I also play the piano, and I compose a little as well. Nothing on YouTube yet, but maybe someday.
