Let's talk about your voice. Your singing voice.
Do you like it?
Has someone ever told you shouldn't sing?
According to The Huffington Post, about 85 percent of us have been actively discouraged from singing out loud by the very people (parents, teachers, or friends) who perhaps should encourage all forms of self-expression.
This Thursday (June 21st) is Make Music Day, an international celebration of the joys of making music. You're invited to fling away your inhibitions, squash your nervousness, and fully participate in the whole range of human expression. Sing, play, dance or tap your toes.
WXXI will set out a music stand, er, The Music Stand, inspired by the Literati Bookstore's typewriter that anyone can type on. Over the years, bookstore owners in Ann Arbor, Michigan have found thousands of notes on their public typewriter; they recently published book of remarkable messages. Likewise, we hope the WXXI Music Stand inspires you to make music.

See you on Make Music Day, I hope!
