For those of you that know me pretty well, you know that I love to sing. I would say that my voice is mediocre at best but I still love to sing. Well, Josh has been playing in a contemporary Christian band the past few weeks and the wives of the two guitar players are the ones that sing. The lead guitarist's wife doesn't want to sing anymore so Josh asked if I would be interested in taking her place. All of the songs they sing are songs that I either have or have heard and I love them all and Josh said they are open to suggestion, so I am going to give them a few other great songs that fit right in with their other songs.
I have always wanted to sing with a group. I used to sing with a group at church a few years ago and that was a lot of fun, but I'm just not sure I can sing 18 songs in their list by myself or with a little help from the one other singer. I think I would feel more comfortable with it if there were more people singing. Josh said he is pretty sure they are looking for someone to be the lead singer. I would definitely rather sing with 3 or 4 other people at least to start out until I feel more comfortable with the songs and everyone.
I know it will be fun and it will be something that Josh and I can do together, but I get so nervous in front of people whether it is talking or singing or just standing there with everyone looking at me. If they were to start doing shows again and there were tons of people there, I'm not even sure I could do it. Plus, I am a lot younger than everyone there by at least ten years. I have always gotten along with people who are older than me, so I am hoping that won't be a problem, but you never know.
I guess it doesn't hurt to at least go there one day and maybe sing along or even just meet everyone and get used to how the group interacts and all that fun stuff.......we shall see.
