I was just recently reminded of a time in my childhood when I first loved to sing. I watched a video of a girl named Conny who sang, "Some where over the rainbow." It was gorgeous. She was 6 years old when she sang that. I remember when my family took a trip to Tulsa Oklahoma. We went by train. On our way back home to Canada, after many set backs( a transit strike and many hours waiting at train stations and bus stops) we finally made it home. As the train was nearing our Canadian destination, I remember looking out the window and I started to sing the song, " Born Free." It was 1966 and the movie "Born Free" had just been released in the movie theaters. I had not yet seen it as I was only 7 years old. I had only heard the song on the radio. I thought it was such a beautiful song. It touched my heart at such a young age. So as our train pulled in to the station in Canada , I remember singing Born Free, as free as the wind blows..... I think it was then that I knew that I loved music. I am not a musician or a song writer, but I know that music touches me deep to the core. Music can make me burst into tears without notice. It only takes a few words of a song and I am touched deep within my soul. Before you know it I can be crying like a baby. I think music is fantastic. I'm all for promoting music in schools . What a fantastic way for young people to express them selves.
