Simple Mind: I Can’t Sing

No, really, if you heard me, you would know I can’t sing. In Church I am like Bill Cosby… remember he talked about his brother Russell and he singing, but only mouthing the words. And how he almost got caught as he had mouth the words AMEN, only to be almost caught as he had to shift his mouth for the words that turn out not to be AMEN, but FOREVER MORE …That is me. I was told when I was in my 20’s and had a husband at that time who played guitar and sang. One day I decided to sing with him as I knew the words … only to be shut down by an instant stop of guitar playing to silence, and a glare… and words of… what ever made you think you can sing? You have a terrible voice/From A Simple Mind. More here.

Question: Do you have a good singing voice?
