Musical Monday - Homeless, Not Voiceless (Dallas Street Choir)

Music is important.  We who enjoy being involved in the making of music know that well as do the people who sing in this marvellous choir.  This piece is particularly poignant - The Climb!

Fun Friday - Shake It Off - Walk off the Earth

Walk Off the Earth is a Canadian group formed about 10 years ago in Burlington Ontario.  They won top album of the year at this year's Juno Awards.  This is very typical of this amazing group.  They are all about having fun with great music.  Check out a previous post that is quite a stretch!!  Tee, hee.

Wonderful Wednesday - Singing at Kerwood United Church

Sunday the Embro Thistle Singers had the privilege of singing at the Evening of Music they hold each year.

We walked into the front of the lovely old church and were surrounded by original wood pews, beautiful coloured glass windows and a spirit of love and acceptance.

We really enjoyed singing in this lovely setting.  Thanks so much to the people of Kerwood and environs who welcomed us and were so complimentary.  We shall have videos soon so stay tuned.  Our professional videographer, Norm, was on the job.  Stay tuned.

Musical Monday - Michael Buble and Blake Shelton - Mixing Styles

Don't you just love it when two genres of music are mixed so masterfully.  It gives this song a whole new flavour.  This is a good idea to keep in mind when we sing in choir as well.  We do have chances to mix it up.  When has it worked for you?

Fun Friday - Pharrell Williams - Happy - I Dare You NOT to Dance

It doesn't matter where I am, when this song comes on in a store, sidewalk, at kickboxing class, I dance.  Oh yeah.  Clap, hum and DANCE.
