Sarah SINGS What?!?!?!?

Do not be alarmed, you read the title of this blog entry correctly.  Today isn't really what I (Sarah) Says...but what I SING!!!

A while back, I did a blog entry about my love of singing and how I found a karaoke website where I can record some of my favorite songs.  Click here to read that blog entry and listen to a few of my recordings of some Elvis songs.

Well, I thought that I would start showcasing/sharing some more of my recordings from that site.  Recently, I've been sharing some of these recordings on Facebook and have received quite a positive response from my Facebook friends.  Some of my friends that I've known for years didn't even know that I could sing!!  This is a big reason why I thought that I'd start sharing some of my recordings here.

I would one day like to do an album and I think a lot of people (myself included) always dream of being famous.

I missed a BIG opportunity last month and ever since then have been beating myself up.  There was a singing competition in my area last month where one Saturday, you went to audition and then if you were chosen (there were 25 spots up for the taking), then you would go on to perform in a concert the following Friday night.  Then, the night of the concert, the top three people would win cash prizes and get the opportunity to record an album for charity.  As I previously mentioned, I missed this chance.  I'm not 100% why I did, either.  Maybe it was because I didn't think that I was good enough.  I talked about this on Facebook and quite a few people assured me that in fact, I WAS good enough.  I'm not sure if they were being nice or if they were telling the truth (I hope they were telling the truth, though.), but it made me feel pretty good about myself.  I was also second guessing the fact if I could win or progress in the competition because I felt that I was at a disadvantage because of my being in a wheelchair.  I know, I know....it's a silly thing to feel this way, but I can't help it.

Anyway, next time that there's a competition, I PLAN on being there and singing my heart out!!

Until then, I want to share my love of singing with you, my dear readers.

I love singing older songs (from The Bee Gees, The Carpenters, and Elvis, just to name a few groups/singers).  I like to sing newer stuff too, but older stuff is sometimes easier and more fun to record.

That being said, today, I've chosen two songs that I love.

The first song that I've selected is "At This Moment" in the style of Billy Vera & the Beaters:

For my second selection, I have chosen to share with you "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?" in the style of The Bee Gees:

I hope that you enjoy listening to my recordings. 

If there is a song that you would like for me to attempt, feel free to request it and I will 1) see if SingSnap has that song available and 2) try my best to fulfill your request.

Thank you for reading/listening, dear readers!!! 

And That's What Sarah Says (and Sings)!!!!
