So many great replies, thank you for all of them.
She has recently joined a thing called Rock Choir here in the UK, she's among likeminded people who meet each week to sing, and now and again they do
a performance in public. It has already helped her come out of herself a bit, and last week she expressed a wish to do a solo at the choir group.
Thats a big step for her.
There is definately not going to be any "forcing" her to do it, i was forced to stand there and sing as a kid and it put me off for years. I think
it's a fine balance, sometimes that extra nudge is indeed needed, but too much and it can have a negative effect. So at the moment, she's just
enjoying the new skills and having fun. Thats good enough for me.
I agree about the comedowns that can hapen when you don't make it big, i'm not sure kids these days realise how much hard work it will take to make
it in the music industry. They see someone get through a few rounds on Pop Idol or X Factor and think it's easy.
Oh well, there is a lot to work on and to read through again in this thread, so a big thank you again from myself and my daughter.
