Thread Name: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean?
Subject: RE: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean?
There are people who m;ake a living doing Elvis and John Denver impersonations. There you have to imitate precisely, and you will be a very good impersonator. You can give a nod to the original accent and keep the words but still sing them in your own accent. I have no problem singing Auld Lang Syne and I do sing dis and dat in some songs, but that also how much of America (oh do I have to do this again explain what America is..OK..All of North America, South America, Central America, Greenland, protectorates, islands, anyone who feels American in their heart and believes in its ideals, however poorly executed, and then excluding anyone who hates being called American because they don't like George Bush or think we are imperialistic or use too much of the world's resources or would prefer really to be called Guatamalan or Chilean) talked and still talks. mg
