Loving your voice is a choice.
My son was inconsolable, in a complete rage, could not control his emotions. And I just didn’t know what to do.
So I did the first thing I could think of. I did what comes naturally. I did what I always do when things get too much.
And he immediately melted into my arms.
Was it the power of my voice? Maybe. But I think it was more likely down to the power of the song.
Because the song I chose to sing to him in that moment was Melanie DeMore’s Sending you light.
You may know it because Melanie is an absolute musical genius. You may know it because we sang it at the end of every Zoom session during the early days of the pandemic. Either way, to know this song, is to be moved by it. To be calmed by it. To be enriched by it.
That’s just the kind of song it is, and the kind of musician that Melanie is.
And so, I could not be more thrilled to welcome Melanie as a guest teacher for the next chapter of my Coro membership.
I know that many of you who enjoyed the incredible free session with Barbara McAfee this month have already grabbed your own membership spot, and we have more spaces available, just for you.
Coro guest teacher — Melanie DeMore.
Melanie herself is a shining light with a generous heart: a vocal activist, she’s the type of person who’ll say, “call me anytime, I’ll sing for you”, and mean it. She’s warm, she’s loving, and she just has this innate ability to bring people together, to help them connect and find common bonds, and to help us all stand united in shared experience and love.
If you haven’t yet heard her music, or her voice, this is an excellent starting point. To me, this song is her anthem. It’s what she stands for with every cell of her body.
And, as you can probably tell, I’m really struggling here to contain my excitement at being able to welcome her to Coro! Join now to be sure of a place for Melanie’s session.
Oh. My. God! (Other upcoming teachers).
As if that wasn’t enough to entice you, I have a host of other incredible singers lined up for you over the rest of 2021.
In fact, when you join Coro, for just $20 a month, you’ll have access to a different guest teacher every month, from choir leaders and improvisation teachers, to song writers, sound healers, and song catchers.
And while I’m keeping a few names under wraps for now, I can let slip that one of our upcoming guest teachers is none other than LA choir director, Maggie Wheeler (yes, THAT Maggie Wheeler, AKA Janice from Friends!) who actually has the most beautiful voice when she’s not annoying Chandler!

Grab your spot now for access to the Sing Y’all Community as well as our weekly song via email and, of course, your monthly 60-minute life session with Melanie, Maggie, and more.
