Having had only one week to practice the (admittedly easier) pieces for the church service this week, we did a much better job (I think) than we did at Xmas. The songs sounded a lot more confident and together on the songs.

It was pretty funny. I can never sing in the morning. I wake up, and even an hour later, my voice is crap, I can't sing any high notes. I noticed after an hour of warming up, suddenly my voice SHOWED UP and the notes I couldn't quite make in practice, they were FINE in performance, which is good because it woulda sounded like crap had I not made the notes. :)

There's something to the whole "warming up" thing, no? Someday I'll actually have to learn the techniques to do it. Right now I use the extremely professional 'singing under my breath' technique. A lot of times before I perform, I'll go to the bathroom and sing a bit to warm up.

Hah, yeah, I'll sing in the car on the way to the show. I know some scales I learned in College to warm up, but in the early AM, even that's not enough. And definitely, singing in the bathroom, you get the awesome echo effect as well. :)
