Well I have you to thank for my favorite new singer!

Was going to reply on another thread using a silly Youtube reference relating to your Sanskrit name of 'Gopi', and I discovered this delightful new singer who sings in Sanskrit.

No, I'm not a good singer.  I have been told I have a lovely voice though and would be good for voice-overs such as cartoons, lol.  I've thought about it but not pursued it.  Why such a lovely cartoon voice that cannot sing, I dunno.  

2)

Favorite Male Singer:  Ronald Orzabal from Tears for Fears  For Roland I like his solo work best from Raoul and The Kings of Spain.  Though Roland and Curt are two amazing singers.  Roland singing below.  I think he is the world's greatest singer.  

Favorite Female Singe:  Loreenna McKennitt.

I'm glad I could be of help! She's a great singer, too!

PS: Gopi's just a nickname someone gave me because I looked like an Indian kid they knew. The name stuck, I guess. I'm actually of Filipino decent.

1.   I think I am a good singer, but everyone - even my friend's five year old daughter - always have no problems telling me not to sing. I have been singing a lot recently, hence the heavy rainfall in my home town currently.

2.   Favourite singers are Joe Elliott, not so much for his voice, although he can still reach the high notes, but because he is a damned sexy man.  And Phil Collins, because he is just apparently the nicest man in rock, or so I've heard.

I'm an OK singer, strictly amateur.... I wish I had a more powerful voice.  I sing along a lot when I listen to music alone. And if I'm not listening to music, there is usually a song playing in my head.

Can't name just one:

Men: Damien Rice, Van Morrison, Eddie Veder,

Women: Cee Cee James, Shemekia Copeland, Beth Hart

in SL I text sing quite a lot. Type the lyrics in open chat at concerts when I know this is not going to be a problem for others present.  Text sing lullabies as well in IM

1. Nope. But I sing anyway. I'm a contralto who can never find a key and I can't harmonize, so it is a mess all around. Even worse I have a very good ear, so that it's really annoying to be as bad as I am.

2. I don't know how people choose. My music tastes are so varied, and I get into moods where I'll listen to one thing over and over and then not listen to it again for years.

Such a cute name :)    Gopi's are the milkmaids of Krishna, following him around while he plays his flute btw...

1. Honestly, yes. Started playing and performing as a teenager. Been in bands, fronted the kind of bands you might see at the local on a Friday night, ie just for kicks. Recently with the  whole quarantine thing I discovered a bunch of my neighbors also play a  little so I started hosting some social distancing jams in the yard. It's a big yard. It just feels GOOD to sing. 

2. I love to play country, bluegrass, folk, traditonal, old time, etc. My favorite singer though, If I had to pick one, is probably Otis Redding.
