How very lovely!
Exceptional and, in my experience, unique. Rare to see hope for humanity and the world crystallised into a couple of minutes, but this performance achieves it. We SO need it!
Took my breath away! Fantastic! 💕💕💕
OK, John Gray, you need to stop making me cry! (Not really. Make me cry like this whenever!)
Yes I had a sob ette
Thanks, I needed that!
That's great. Will you be joining the soprano section?
Of course, the higher the better
Get yourself some very tight underpants.
Is there any limit to your talents?Good luck and have fun
So glad you are joining s choir x
Thank you,John,I so enjoyed that video. Is there any possibility of one with your singing being made so we can watch it? -Mary
Interesting, John. The few times in my life I have some sort of grief, be it minor be it major, I tend to avoid music like the plague. Reason? Music is evocative. Last thing I need in a moment of reflection.U
I think it will do me good
Of course, it will [do you good]. Trust me, John, hanging my head in shame: The shorter the post the more I will miss. Give me an essay of mega proportions and I am all yours, the tiniest detail not escaping my attention. So, yes, of course, overlooked by me, YOU will be singing. That's great. Opening the diaphragm embracing life.U
What a fabulous idea to join the choir !cheers, parsnip and badger
Singing brings out a healing for me. I still cried buckets but It released tension inside me while singing. Go enjoy, steady up. Gabs🙂
I never watch this kind of programmes but this piece is fantastic. Have fun at the choir.
It's strangely moving, I think it's because everyone is so ordinary and look as though they are having so. Much fun
Absolutely stunning John - and do join a choir. Welsh choirs are the tops and every time you sing it will make you feel good.
That's the idea x
Brilliant clip ... and good for you, enjoy yourself.
Thankyou so much for this post John, so beautiful it choked me up and bought tears to my eyes.Brionyx
That's wonderful, John - you will get so much from singing. Keep us in the loop, please!
So moving ! Made me smile and get tears in my eyes :)
I used to enjoy the Gareth Malone choirs.
What a thrill - three tissues worth!I join with all who are glad to read that you're joining the nearby Community Choir. After all, as I read long ago, "He who sings, prays twice."
I sang for many years and had a fabulous time. Now I dance and love it as much.Arilx
So glad your joining a choir John, not just singing but fun and laughter are part and parcel of any choir.
Love the video and good for you that you are going to join a choir! It will be both fun and healing for you.
Have a heap of fun. And make beautiful music.
Always a dream of mine, John.May you thrive.
Fantastic- Community Choirs are great - they would be lucky to have you Siobhan
Wonderful, here is hoping there will be a video!
I envy you, wish I could sing. You lucky boy! Enjoy.
It felt as though a waterfall flowed over me as I listened x
Love, LOVE, LOVED this . . .Oh John . . . so happy you are going to meet with the Community Choir . . , Do record for us . . . your singing . . .This was wonderful, listening again and again!
Singing brings joy and is very uplifting. I think that will be wonderful for you and them.
Wonderful! Have a marvelous time!
It's a shame we all can't be there. :)
I used to work in Queen Street in Cardiff when I was eighteen. Every time I heard the Welsh singing at Cardiff Arms Park for the Rugby tears would pour down my cheeks. Not a good look when you are trying to be cool. The Welsh singing still has the same effect on me forty year on. There is nothing like it. I think you will have a wonderful time, fantastic idea. Patricia.
Just the job John, all very therapeutic and uplifting.
That was great. We have a choir in Toronto who challenged Rick Astley to sing with them. He accepted. The whole choir (and Rick)had the same sense of joy. Two thumbs up for you joining the choir.
rick astley (swoon)!
cool! hope they make a video of the choir's performance!
They did. It's Choir,Choir,Choir.
That choir was on AGT for semi- finals tonight and brought the house down. They have to win this! They are marvelous and everything about them makes you feel good.
What an inspired idea! You will love it, I think! I'm a little jealous.
Good on ya!
Just the ticket!Kylie
That's a great plan John. There's something very therapeutic about singing (in the shower, or alone in the car with the windows down!) and doubly so when singing with others. You don't have to be a Star Singer with a trained voice - I'm sure you'll love it.
Auntie Glad would be pleased as punch I bet.
I've actually been asked not to join in a chorus of Happy Birthday. Gives you some idea of my singing skills...
Fantastic - both the choir and your new plan!
Thank you, and so glad you are joining a choir. I sing here in Provence with a French community choir and enjoy it so much. Have also made some good friends too.
Great news! Keep busy.
Goosebumps from head to toe, thanks for that. I think joining the choir's a great idea. Would love to be able to sing, sadly, tone deaf.
Totally and utterly amazing, sitting here crying like a baby.
