After the karaoke awakening I have come to the conclusion that I'm lousy with pop songs especially with the newer songs but I can still manage to carry the tune for the oldies.
I'm not too bad with Christian worship songs but - it is so embarrassing to admit this - I excel as a funeral singer!
I found that out last Sunday night when I was roped in to lead in a wake service. I could start the song in the right key and carry the tune without any back-up and with only a guitar accompanying me. I must say I did not sound too bad over the PA system, even if it's by my own evaluation.
God in His mercy probably did not want me to wake the dead or cause the bereaved family further pain.
