How Great Thou Art, Sung From Bathroom–Amazing Video
Many years ago I traveled a lot for a school that I worked for, which of course meant countless hotel rooms. One morning as I was walking to the checkout desk, I heard a singing voice coming from one of the rooms. Because of the echo, I surmised it was the bathroom. As I got closer it was obvious that a lady was singing “Amazing Grace” at the top of her lungs. The song has always been amazing, but so wasn’t she.
We’ve all done it at one time or another–sung in the bathroom. There’s something about the slight echo and reverb of that personal room that brings out the fullness of the sound of your voice–good, bad, or otherwise. It’s also a space that’s super personal, a place, at least for a short time, that’s all yours–a time you can cut loose with your favorite song.
I found a video of Emi Pelligrino singing an old gospel favorite that she sung in Carrie Underwood fashion. It’s obvious that she found the right key on a Karaoke track.
Watch the video. You’ll wonder how many other great voices that will never make it beyond that little place.
