Here’s an interesting article about the many benefits of singing: “It sounds and feels good” by Hema Vijay.
What particularly interested me was how “MOP” performs –
In his concerts, he simplifies a classical song, breaking it up into phrases, so that even lay persons can pick up the melody and sing it.
I would love to go to a concert like that!
As a related tidbit, when my daughter was a mere baby I remember singing everything as I carried her around, ie. “Now we’re going downstairs” or “Oh the phone is ringing” etc. Now I’m thinking it was doing me as much good as it was entertaining her. (Or maybe I’m overestimating the entertainment properties of my voice…)
