I once sang a duet with a friend at the front of our church sanctuary. By the end, we both – though of robust voice – were singing so very softly that we could hardly be heard. Afterward – when we stopped laughing – we tried to figure out what in the world had happened to us.
One of us thought she was over-loud, and so took the decibel level down a notch. But then the other felt conspicuously loud, and did the same. And on it went. Ridiculous, but true.
The moral of this embarrassing tale is: don’t sing down! Don’t adjust the level of your enthusiasm, your energy, your intensity to try to ‘fit’ the level of another person. Even if you feel somewhat ‘loud’ in comparison, just, please, sing on!
