No Two Voices Are The Same

It’s funny how we can never imagine how God actually created each and everyone of us so unique from each other. From our faces to the lines on our palm to the shape of our toes. Even twins and triplets are not exactly alike. But tonight, I noticed that even our voices, speaking or singing, are as equally unique.

I was dead tired when I got home from a whole day of teaching classes. I don’t want to do anything but to lie on my bed and listen to music. Turned on my playlist into shuffle and heard Hayley Williams’ (vocalist of Paramore) voice singing Zedd’s song. I realized that her voice is so distinct that I can’t compare her to any other singers.

After realizing that, made me think that no two voices are the same which is actually awesome. Can you name one artist that sounds exactly the same as another one? I bet none. That’s really cool. Even if we try to imitate them in karaokes… No way in hell that we would sound the same.

I know that this random thought is so light and simple but yeah, it made me smile and I’d love to share this to you guys. Lol.

People Stared

I sang last night. It felt really good. I know I am not the best singer in the world (and not that I am competing with anyone, haha!) but I still have insecurities and I know I sing flats and sharps. It’s been a while since the last time me and my band had a gig and I never sung a song in front of people since then.

But last night, it felt really awesome. We were at my uncle Henry’s birthday party at a bar. He closed the whole bar for his party if I may add. There were musicians playing in trio – a guitarist, a singer and a percussionist. And my titos (aunts) and titas (uncles) requested for me to sing since they never heard me perform on stage.  So there I am, I couldn’t say no but really am scared cause I don’t have any practice at all.

People stared. I got the guitar and sang Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn and Bic Runga’s Sway. When I started singing, people started to pay attention. I just said to myself, “Shocks. This is so embarrassing. I didn’t practice at all and maybe I’m out of tune.” or something like “Ah, they’re looking cause they noticed that there’s a different singer in front of them.”. But then when I got to the chorus part, people stared and watched me the whole time. I was really flattered because I got their attention. It was a long time since I last believed in my singing and I took courage to share them to the audience… turns out they did too. I’m so happy! 🙂
