At this point in my life I do not have many hobbies.  I am working full-time and pursuing an M.Ed. from the University of South Carolina Columbia.  However, one of the things that I enjoy the most is singing.  It is my ultimate enjoyment.  I sing in my choir at church and I also sing at weddings.  There are several singers that I admire.  Some of them have great voices,but there are some who I admire because of their phrasing.  I do not particularly care for singers who utilize vocal acrobatics/gymnastics.  I believe in staying honest with a song....I would like for the composer to recognize that it is her/his composition.  When I say that I believe in staying honest, I mean that I think it is important to stay as close to the melody as possible.  Two of my favorite singers are Richard Smallwood and Donnie McClurkin.  I have included links to their webpages.
