In church this morning I realized how important the way we sing can be. How various cantors I've known had an effect on me. Made the prayers come alive. (We can do that too by singing our feelings...like we mean it - even if the voice is not perfect.)
These quotes seem to fit my thoughts...
"The total person sings not just the vocal chords." -Esther Broner
“A song can be more than words and music ... when sung with soul a song carries you to another world, to a place where no matter how much pain you feel, you are never alone.” -Clay Aiken
