Sing Yourself Healthy
Why do people sing?
To put it simply because it makes you smile, laugh, feel, think, create. All of the things that breeds happiness.
I found this break down below where it explains the benefits of singing physically, emotionally and socially. This really resonates with me (excuse the pun) because with out singing at an early age i would not of become as confident and positive as i feel right now.
