My first studio recording! (A gift to myself as I’m turning 40 next week)By
I have always loved music and singing, and I used to have those huge green earphones from the seventies glued to my head when I was a child, probably listening to ABBA or something that my parents were into back then
I grew up doing performances for my family and sang into those cassette recorders, remember them? (how cool it would be to find those and listen to them again, my parents says they still have them somewhere) and I used to teach my siblings to sing and perform as well. (I was a very artsy kid:).
Next tuesday is my 40th birthday and yesterday I gave myself a gift that I have wanted to do for a long time, but never had the money to afford to do it.
Well, after had asked God to help me, one thing lead to another and I saw this very clear unfolding happening before me that lead me to a studio that was affordable and also close to where I live, so I decided to do it, and I’m so glad I did!
I had the best of times, I LOVED it, it was so much fun!
I could easily do more of that, and I would love to afford to develop my voice by hiring a vocal coach or take singing lessons as my voice is very rusty at the moment, but it’s not essentially about that; to me it’s all about the joy, and I really enjoyed being in the studio.
This was the best gift I could ever give to myself and I am so happy I did it!
So, .. [drum roll].. I would like to share my singing with you, this is the result of hours of fun in the recording studio yesterday – it’s a very simple demo, but nevertheless, it was great fun, I learned a lot of interesting stuff, and I will definitely do it again!
Here it is: “My heart will go on” (Celine Dion) sung by me, Maria Erving.
I chose this song because this is one of the songs I have sang numerous of times on Karaoke in the past when I liked going out to bars etc.
Here’s some more pics:
I learned some interesting things too.
I will definitely do it again:)
