Local artist Donna Barnes-Roberts, who plies her trade in the Coffee Gallery, also participates in the gallery's Wednesday night singalongs. But not every song is covered by Rise Up Singing, so they've introduced a new wrinkle: Laptop Lyrics:
We are actually trying to help organize our Wednesday singalongs, so everyone has lyrics in front of them, and any musicians know what key we will likely be singing in. A group of us who had nothing better to do Sunday night turned the Sunday night Singer-Songwriter showcase into more of a singalong, and thought that it would be helpful if we had a easy place to get lyrics. This is it! By using the same lyric links, we know that we will all have the same VERSION of the song. If you don't have a laptop, others will share so all can sing. Remember, this is not about the musicians or the person with the microphone. This is not about who sings the best or plays the best. This is about everyone having a fun time singing.
Check out her Laptop Lyrics blog for the song versions and keys that're on tap so far for Wednesday night. Bring your voice, instrument, laptop (or any combo thereof) and sing along!
