Sing it out loud!

BY CHAHIRA NOUIRA

When singing to win a TV show or to be the lead singer in the trendiest band in town has become the norm, we seem to have forgotten that singing is more than just that. Sharing the gift of singing across genres, countries and cultures goes beyond just a performance on stage. it´s about connecting, sharing and learning.

Chahira Nouira shares the story of how songs and singing has led her through life and helped her find a place whereever she goes.

Livin' in Gomerica: tales from the World's Biggest Band

BY ANDY WALLMAN
@ VOL 24 ON NOV 09, 2017

Were The Gomers the world's biggest band? They made some noise in the late 1980's with a few songs appearing on the national Dr. Demento radio show. Over time, they realized they knew over 2,000 cover songs and a live karaoke band was born. The spent the next 12 years sharing the stage with over ten thousand lead singers who (usually) lived out their rock and roll dreams three blissful rockin' minutes at a time. (That is a big band.) Andy Wallman was the first chair tambourine player for The Gomers and will take you on the inside of what it was like to be Livin' in Gomerica.

A Chorus Walks into a Bar: How David Bowie's Death Happened to Birth a Musical Community

BY KATE SOKOLOFF
@ VOL 26 ON JUN 18, 2018

Twice a month, a Portland, ORE bar transforms into a drop-in alt/indie sing-along backed by a live band. A non-chorus chorus, the OK Chorale PDX is like drive-through group karaoke meets bar trivia night: people can come or go at any time, the band’s packed with rotating musicians from Blind Pilot to the Eels, and no one cares what you sound like. The motto: "we're just OK." Some people come to relax and socialize, others to sing without making a commitment, and some even call it their “church.” How did this happen? Why now? Why does it work? You can thank David Bowie.
