Thread Name: Do you need to *believe* what you sing?
Subject: RE: Do you need to *believe* what you sing?
You better believe it when you are singing it, or you are just repeating the words. I don't mean you have to be a christian to sing "The Old Rugged Cross", but you'd better have an understanding of what the lyrics mean and try to put forth the feeling required by the tune or you are doing a disservice to the music. And we can't have that, now can we?
