Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice and augments regular speech by the use of sustained tonality, rhythm, and a variety of vocal techniques. A person who sings is called a singer or vocalist. Singers perform music (arias, recitatives, songs, etc.) that can be sung with or without accompaniment by musical instruments. Singing is often done in an ensemble of musicians, such as a choir of singers or a band of instrumentalists. Singers may perform as soloists or accompanied by anything from a single instrument (as in art song or some jazz styles) up to a symphony orchestra or big band. Different singing styles include art music such as opera and Chinese opera, Indian music, and religious music styles such as gospel, traditional music styles, world music, jazz, blues, gazal and popular music styles such as pop, rock, electronic dance music and filmi (film songs).

Outside of the amazing duet this three points stand out to me in this video.First a mothers love for her son-willing to do what she needed to do to get Micheal Bubles attention to introduce her son . Second Micheal Buble's humbleness in wanting to pay it forward by giving Sam the oppurtunity to sing. And third, Sam having the condfidence to get up there and sing - follow his dream.

I've been singing now for almost twenty years (almost all Genres, NOT all, but almost all of 'em). I think (just MY opinion, so don't get all mad) this man is the best vocal teacher on YouTube. I sing to these Genres--Tex-Mex, Mariachi, Rock -n- Roll, Christian/Gospel, Opera, Country, Folk Songs, Oldies and Ballads. I love, love, LOVE to sing! I LOVE being on stage! I LOVE being a Performer! I LOVE The Performing Arts! Someday--still haven't given up yet--i hope to find a band to go on tour to perform (even IF only in the United States of America)! :-) Have a fun and a safe weekend to ALL! So long.
