Singing is therapy for me. I sing for my own spirit, my own pleasure. If someone else can relate to what I am singing about, what I am feeling, that is a good thing because that someone will realize that they are not alone. My singing did not start until I was 60, so I realize that I will never be an Aretha Franklin, but I do aspire to be a good singer, a good storyteller of some of life's trials and errors. A lot of what I do is just snippets of partial songs, thoughts, feelings. My husband is a musician and lots of times when he's practicing, I will record bits and pieces of his music and write little short lyrics that represent what I'm thinking or feeling at the time. I find pleasure in this type of singing.
My stage name is Roz and you can find me on Roz's YouTube channel.
