Happy New Year on Sing-Share - 20th January, 2010
Ringing in the Changes!
Tonight we start our third challenge of the New Year. We have just ended the "Unforgettable Years", hosted by Mike & Sandy and now we move on to The Everyone’s A Winner Crooner’s Challenge/Showcase Thingy CXL "...Crooning is a style that has its roots in the Bel Canto of Italian opera, but with the emphasis on subtle vocal nuances and phrasing found in jazz as opposed to elaborate ornamentation or sheer acoustic volume found in opera houses. Before the advent of the microphone, popular singers, like Al Jolson, had to project to the rear seats of a theater, which made for a very loud vocal style. The microphone made possible the more personal style. Crooning is not so much a style of music as it is a technique in which to sing..." Click the link and see first post for details.
Over the holiday period Rich (Colonel Mac) chaired for us giving us an excellent tour of his archives. Every now and then he will issue a "Toss Up" song for anyone to grab and try... this area has been delightfully picked up with many new members who we send out a warm welcome to, joining us from other websites. Thank you Rich!
This is a brand new area on our website, in fact so new Dani is still creating it for us! It's a ladies place, sssh! Know what I mean? Here you will find: Beauty Tips, Fashion, Girls club Photos, Homes and Garden, Victoria's Secrets, Recipes, Dear Abby, Horoscopes, and Astrology. She has been working very hard and it is exciting watching it unveiled. Men are being relegated to the Tool Shed, heh.
Another brand new area. I know that many of our members have youtube accounts and post their music there, and I am also trying to encourage new youtubers to join us. What I hope to do with this page as you will see when you visit, is place your channel photo in a mosaic, as you place them in the thread on the page indicated. You have no obligation to do anything else, but of course the ideal is that you will click on others and find out what they have been up to and support them too. If you are new to us and have just joined, you can post threads under Sing-Share Music Original & Covers or Singers and Backing Tracks boards so that we can find out more about you and give you feedback on the site. You can also use your Ultimate Profile section to embed players and songs, photos etc. You may find people to collaborate with who you haven't found on youtube before because it is such a big site.
If you are a performer/drama; create art videos, you can also add them as youtube embeds on our site under Video Creations by Sing-share members. Explore the website and let us know how you get on.
Come and put yourself on our map! This is an exciting way of finding out where we are all located!
I think that is all our news for now. We have other ideas we are working on and look forward to updating you again later on in the year. Of course, we have our quizzes, games, art, photography, creative writing and friendly discussion areas you can join in too.

Our Best wishes to you all,
