Our First Karaoke Experience in the USA Together

Reblogged this on my site…. just click on my avatar. You guys know where to find me. lol

  3. Philippines, the country of singers and dancers. But a friend of mine there can not sing. Violin represents her to sing …. Can you play I Can not Sing by Cynthia Erivo & Alan Morrissey with your violin? Hey Ms Renx. Who says “I can not sing” should sing ‘I can not sing’ to be known to the public. 🙂
