Question of the Week
by Melissa Wimbish
Okay, this is kind of a weird, needy, insecure question, but I feel like this happens to all singers at some point in their social adventures. You’re hanging out with some different people. Non-singers. You’re having a great time, chill, discussing something political and then it happens: Someone asks you what you do. Of course that becomes the most interesting topic in the world and they eagerly ask more questions and then one of your other musician (non-singer) friends returns from grabbing your drinks and realizes that everyone is talking about singing and says something to the effect of, “Oh great, you’ve managed to turn this into a ‘singer party,’ too…”
Not that it’s ever happened to me or anything.
Do you feel awkward in social situations because you’re a singer? What’s wrong with a singer party? Doesn’t it just mean we’re passionate about what we do?
