Thread Name: Singing at a funeral
Subject: RE: Singing at a funeral
This is a darned good question. I've been in that situation many times. I can't give you ant magical method, other than relate what I've had to do several times:

1. absolute focus and attention to the song. Visualize the printed words in your mind's eye and do your duty
2. Jab your fingernail into your palm until bleed when you feel yourself losing it
3. Turn the presentation down if you know you can't do it.

I hope this helps. bob(deckman)nelson
