Retired Army Sergeant

by Dwight Crews
(Seattle Wa)

I was raised on southern gospel, and sort have same tones as Elvis and Roy Orbison. I have no formal training, but have been told on a good day I have at least 4 octaves. At Karaoke bars I do Journey songs and hit all the high notes.
Also Elvis and Roy are part of my songs. I also do Queen songs. I would love to be part of the worship service, but have been told because of my vibrato and age I don’t fit into their plan. I am 65 and can hit all the Orbison notes.

Should I try to reinvent myself or give up on singing for God and stick to Karaoke?

Hmmm. Dwight Crews,

If I were in your position, I would sing what makes me feel wonderful. If singing gospel is very important to you, you could consider getting a few lessons to learn ways to control your vibrato a little more.

But you don't have to give up singing the music that you (and your voice) love to sing!

Why can't you do both?
