:3 So my question here is.. do you like to sing? And if so.. do you think you have a great singing voice?


As for me.. I am a terrible singer! And I actually rarely sing.. but when I do it's usually (once every few months) in the late hours of the night (4-5AM) when I had to stay up long hours to finish my film or any other projects I had going. Mostly to keep me awake and others awake too.. but I tend to want to do it when I'm drawing to let tension in my chest out so my lines flow better. I am relentless when that happens, though.. I'll just sing whatever loudly and if I don't know lyrics, I'll just improvise and throw in names and situations of whoever is around me at the time. (Usually no one or a couple others.) It's just for fun- and yes, I've had people tell me I am terrible, but I don't mind! I make sure it's not annoying anyone (I've always told them they could have me stop at any time) but they usually tend to join along, or laugh at my silly improvised rhymes ( ;3 which end up witty most of the time haha!) I've never been to karaoke though! I'm not sure if I'd ever want to, haha that'd be a bit TOO much embarrassment! But I may someday!
Though I've been told I have a great voice-acting voice.. and I've had my voice used in 3 short films before- including one in-house one for Disney.

I used to hate singing when I was in elementary school, but now I sing to myself every now and then. I think I'm all right, even though I haven't sung for very long.

[css-span="font-family: "Tahoma"; font-size: 11px; color: #4b373d;"]When I was like 9 I was in a city choir and you had to have a good voice to get in. Now? It's kinda bad (or at least not nearly up to par), but I'll sing along privately or with a close friend to my favorite songs anyway. Eventually I want to actually practice for real again and re-train my voice so I can maybe sing in my own films and definitely someday sing pretty lullabies to my children. :3[/css-span]

Awesome.

Lets put it like this:
When I hear my singing: OMG THIS IS AMAZING
When I hear it through a recording: ewwwwwwwwwwwwww

I think I'm not bad at singing as I got into the school choir (It's not that easy because ~350 people went to the audition but only 30 got in o3o) and yeah, I sing all the time xD;

I sing when I'm alone, I suck, so that is why no one is allowed to hear it. :3

I sing when I can't hear myself, it makes me sound so much better.

I'm pretty fond of singing, yes. Unfortunately, I don't have the greatest singing voice ever, but I sound pretty alright according to some statistics, haha. :3 When I'm free, I love picking up my guitar. I strum, I sing. I can sing in front of an audience (only if it's small, lol), but I'm not very confident without a guitar.

I sing a lot. I also dance a lot. You will never see me do either, because it only happens when there's nobody around to see it. Thus - does it really happen at all?

What's the Disney voice you had to do??

I don't sing. Some people sing in the shower, I don't. I'm silent.

I'm a humming kind of person. But still not very often

I sing quite a bit. I've come first in two competitions and have gotten quite a lot of places/HC's too. I'm still pretty mediocre but I guess I'm still finding my style.

I like to sing a lot whenever, but I haven't really done it infront of other people before. I can't really say I'm great though, at least I don't think so.

It was an internal project; sorta set to like mission impossible. I just did some voiceover narration.

In the other films I was.. haha a little Viking girl.. and another I was this Scientist lady who gets harassed by this really hilarious-looking mad scientist man with a creepy moustache who hides inside lab jackets hanging on walls! It was fun :3


I only have access to this.. not the full version.. oh well! (Basically she goes into work.. >_> and she goes to the back room and you see this labcoat move in the background.. and then it flips around to reveal that guy.. and hilarious soap opera spanish music starts playing.. and he like.. swings and tiptoes around.. and pretends to do a slow-motion roll over something.. and she comes back and she's like "Who are you? What are you doing?" and he's like "The implications of my research are bigger than you could ever imagine" and he grabs her and pulls her close and she's like "what?" and he's like "the particle accellerator" and she pushes away and he's like "You're right! We can't let our passions get in the way!" and it goes on but yeah.. it's really funny :C I wish I had the full version to share.. I have it on ISO but.. it'd need to rip it :/

I love singing.

I've been told I'm good at it by most people, and my ex singing teacher liked my voice... And I mean I always get main singing roles in musicals so I can't be that bad? I dunno, I don't think I'm very good - Especially in a recording. But whatever it doesn't stop me, I will just go around with my friends singing at the top of our voices. I also would sometimes randomly sing while I was like walking to/from school because I'm just that awesome and if I hear a song I know I nearly always subconciously start singing along.

I... I can't even carry the tune of "Happy Birthday". :( Or if you ask me to sing/hum a note or a small sequence of notes, I won't even be close. As such I really don't sing much at all. I avoid it wherever possible, but if I've got a song stuck in my head and I'm alone, it's not too uncommon for me to toss it on, crank it up, and sing along. Just so long as I'm not inflicting it on others, haha.

I don't sing unless there is enough music to drown out my voice so no one can actually hear it. Even when I'm alone I feel self-conscious about singing and might catch myself singing too loud and then quiet down a bit. So yeah, I enjoy singing, but not being heard. I also hum quite a bit when there's no music around.

I am the lead singer of a band of Heavy Metal, Hard Rock and Metalcore, so I can say I have a good voice (of course if you do not like rock, you'd hate my voice :P). I love to sing solo, accompanied, in the shower, etc..

I'M A BAD SINGER but I do it anyway.

Singing through my nose / really softly is the only thing I can do without sounding like an insane person.

I enjoy singing to the radio, but I try not to sing too loudly, because I think I have a bad voice. My sister thinks otherwise, but idk. I don't like it, personally. :p

I was in choir 8th and 9th grade and it was somewhat enjoyable. It was more fun in 8th grade, I thought; 9th grade was kind of a chore. I also sang for church choir a few times, but never for the long term. Now, I'm stuck with the radio, but I think it's best that way.

I can't either. And it really is not a fun song to sing XD I just mouth it.

When possible, at family birthdays, I opt to be cameraman, and I block my mouth out with the camera in front of it so they can't see I'm not joining in lol

Anyway, thinking back on my answer. I think I probably hum more than I think I do. Too many "think"s in there, but whatever. I can probably hum the entire Beatles catalogue XD

If your life depended on me singing, then I hope you said good bye to all your loved ones. I'm as bad as those auditions you see on American Idol. I sing to myself when I'm alone though. Nothing in particular. Just random nonsense.

I like to sing... it's mostly really bad pop songs or even J-pop... I can't sing very well though, but I'm not *terrible*. My brother is, however. xD

I have no pitch at all, omg. I dread anyone who hears me singing along to the music on the radio or on my iTunes, especially when I'm singing along to power ballads (YOU'RE SIMPLY THE BEST DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN BETTER THAN AALLLLL THE REST DUN DUN). I sing in the shower all the time, lol. My song of choice is usually Carwash, ahahahha.

I find it fun to sing, no matter how bad my voice is. It makes me happy and I love singing lyrics at the most obnoxious times. It doesn't matter that I can't carry a tune, as long as I'm enjoying myself, that's all that matters.

Oh, I like to sing, but I have an awful voice. Doesn't keep me from singing though, but I make sure that if I'm not at a karaoke, I'm alone when I do it... I don't need to subject others to that kind of torture, lol.

I quite like singing even if I suck. Actually I don't know if I suck or anything because I never recorded it. I bet I suck but whatever.

I only sing when I'm home alone because I like to sing quite loud and I make up random songs and it could get quite embarrassing.

I love singing. XD; I wouldn't say I'm amazing but I'm not horrible either. Buuut I can't sing in front of other people - or at least, try to sing well in front of other people. If I'm singing with my friends, I tend to pretend I'm horrible and pitchy and I use lots of random falsettos and people laugh so it's all good. But I'm too shy to sing well in front of people, haha.

Only when drunk, which produces pretty terrible results as you can imagine. Otherwise I'm too afraid of being heard, thin walls and all. Actually I don't think I've ever even properly attempted whilst sober.

My singing is so bad it's scary. Seriously, my cat freaks out when I sing.

But I do it anyways, cause I love singing. Especially with my friends, we randomly break into song in the school hallways.
