Thread Name: Respect for a singer
Subject: Respect for a singer
Last night I sang three songs at my companies Centenary Ball. I had been nagged for a while to sing at the function. The hotel room had 200 guests and a Rock and Roll band with a meal etc. The room was very noisy as you can imagine.
I had been dreading this as most of the people I spoke to previously said they had never heard folk songs before. Anyway, after an hour of Status Quo and Beatles music, I was called up to sing. It was really noisy with people enjoying themselves and being merry.
I sang three songs acapella ie Leaving of Liverpool, She moves through the Fair and Wild Mountain Thyme. I was amazed at the order I received. you could have heard a pin drop. I finished to raptuous applause and lots of genuine praise.
Although I would not sing at a firms do again, I,m glad I did this and was so pleased that everyone listened to the songs and showed the songs and the singer some respect. Sorry, just wanted to share this experience with you.
