This I believe-Singing. Singing is a way of expressing my feelings. A beautiful song can touch my heart

Extracts from this document...


"This I believe" Singing is a way of expressing my feelings. A beautiful song can touch my heart ----- surrounded by music, I think a heart of stone can soften and beat with the rhythm of the music. Each note to me carries feelings and thoughts; the rests, a moment of silence; the chorus, life's moment of climax; the last chord, the melodious harmony to a perfect end of a blissful life. I believe that music change people's lives and often their hearts as well. Since I had the first memory of my childhood, my parents have been fond of music. Naturally, they loved singing.

It was then I realised my father finally let go. That moment was the perfect ending to my mother's life. I often asked myself, was that to be the only song in my life? No, I am to create new songs, new stanzas and bars in my life. Music never dies as it touches many hearts, it lives in us. Singing might seem like an insignificant thing to people, but to me, singing is more than projecting notes.
