This is a tough one as our emotions always lie at the very surface when we are grieving and when we are singing. Singing is a very personal thing, and If you are still working through your feelings of grief it can be difficult to keep your composure when you sing, especially if it’s someone close to you. See our IGTV on singing through the grief here.
Here are 3 things you can do to help ease and flow of singing at a loved ones memorial:
- Look down, close your eyes and take a good long breath in through your nose, and a good long breath out through your mouth.
- When you look up to start singing, make sure your focus is just above people’s heads. Avoid eye contact. Looking at people’s faces will overwhelm you and bring on the tears. Avoid closing your eyes. We are some how stronger when our eyes are open.
- Channel your thoughts to all things calm and beautiful when you are singing. Feel the energy of strength and joy as you sing & remember that when you sing to give, everything becomes easier.
