Sing-along Song — Forever in Love

Still in the mood for love? No matter what your age, every day is a cause for celebrating your love. As John Lennon aptly says,
All you need is love.
All you need is love, and a love song to sing to your Sweetheart. If you haven’t already signed up for Teacher Jobina’s singing lessons, here are some tips to improve your singing:
** Open your mouth and breathe from the diaphragm (your stomach will move gently outwards when you inhale) so that you can control the air you are expelling when you sing.

** Never underestimate the power of warm-ups. Practising your scales can be boring, but it helps exercise your singing muscles, strengthen your voice and extend your range and your sense of pitch.

** Are you singing too high or too low? Sing in a comfortable pitch so you will not strain your voice and damage your vocal cords.

** Record yourself singing, or sing in front of others. This is the best way to hear your problems, and then use others’ comments about your voice, constructively, to improve.

** Eat healthy and drink plenty of water to keep your throat well hydrated. Avoid caffeine, and dairy products (they cause mucous build-up). And avoid smoking and too much alcohol as this can affect your singing voice.

** Experiment singing your songs in different genres, or in styles of different singers. Notice what is special about each style of music and emulate those. If you are singing country, listen to country singers etc… Or speak with singers established in that genre. Do not simply copy another singer’s voice; keep your voice unique; allow your personality and your voice to shine through the music.

So now that you’ve got these tips, it’s time to choose your ‘couple theme song’. Which songs have lyrics meaningful to you and your loved one?  Start practising so you can serenade your girlfriend/wife by next Valentine’s Day!
Here’s wishing you Happy Valentine’s Day, and to many more years of happy union! May you stay Forever in Love!

Forever in Love by a1

Love leads to laughter
Love leads to pain
With you by my side
I feel good times again
Never have I felt these feelings before
You showed me the world
How could I ask for more
And although there’s confusion
We’ll find a solution to keep my heart close to you
And I know, yes I know
If you hold me, believe me
I’ll never, never ever leave
And I know
There is nothing that I would not do for you
Forever be true
And I know
Although times can be hard
We will see it through
I’m forever in love with you
And I know
There is nothing that I would not do for you
Forever be true
And I know
Although times can be hard
We will see it through
I’m forever in love with you
