Thread Name: Singing at a funeral
Subject: RE: Singing at a funeral
There are quite a few songs I can't sing without welling up when I'm practising. When I'm singing to other people that goes away - the sense of what the song needs takes over (I don't mean interpretation, just that after every word you sing there's another word to be sung to another note). I sang at my mother's funeral; I found it a lot easier than it would have been to speak or give a reading.
