Sing For Life
An amazing, wonderful,
and electric experience occurs
when the singer begins to perform. All of the preparation that has
been done to develop the proper skill and creative understanding of singing
is now being shared with an audience. The very heart and soul of
the performer is now being exposed for all to see. Where, when or
how will the success be measured?
The very fact
that the performer is ready and willing to
share his or her craft is, a true measurement of success.
Some genres of music are not going to be enjoyed by everyone
but at good strong performance is something that almost always touches the
heart of anyone who is fortunate enough to see it.
Below are some pictures of a variety of performers who make the stage on
which they stand come to life!!
The Youth Singers are a very talented group of young
people who perform around the country throughout the year. Their
shows are accentuated with colorful costumes and beautiful scenery.
Young Singers become adult singers. The process
of their education is a path of discipline, determination and discovery.
Being a performer takes it's beginning steps in the music education
of the youth. Dreams are realized through determination and persistence.
There is always a mentor/teacher who makes all the difference by guiding
the students carefully, skillfully toward developing into a good performer.
The end results are reflected in the many venues available today which
offer opportunities for the singing performer.
One of a handful of neo-classic soul artists
to emerge following the late '90s success of artists like D'Angelo and Lauren
Hill, Atlanta's India Arie stood poised at the beginning of 2001 to make
a major impact. A studied songwriter and guitar player rooted
in the R&B, soul, Motown, and blues of the past, but grounded in the post
hip-hop urban world of today, Arie's debut, Acoustic Soul, was rich with
textured songs, kooks, and impressively mature lyrics considering the artist
had only been writing songs for five years.
