…and that’s why I love to sing.

“Have fun while you can ’cause fate’s an awful thing. You can never tell what might happen and that’s why I love to sing.” – T-Bone Walker

T-Bone Walker (1910-1975)

T-Bone Walker (1910-1975)

This quote from T-Bone Walker, one of my heros of the blues, sums up life for me. I enjoy my life and career in television, video production and photography, but before all that I was, and continue to be, a singer and lyricist. It’s an integral part of who I am. I don’t make a living at it, but I will continue doing it as long as I am alive.

When I am singing I can suspend everything else in my mind, all the ups and downs and rocks in the road of life, and just be “in the moment” with the song.

It calms me and makes me happy to be alive at the same time …and that’s why I love to sing. – Trace

What about you?

It had to be Top 7! Read more…
