    I've been feeling pretty down lately and recently I found comfort in Adele's version of 'To Make You Feel My Love'. The song communicates a lot of what I've been feeling recently so I wanted to express that through singing and playing (albeit badly!).

    So don't laugh, don't judge, just sit back and enjoy. Hopefully anyone else not feeling too good can relate too.

    P.S I'm actually more a classical pianist than a singer but you really can't tell from this vid lol - it was a second take!

    wow


    Definitely hers! This video was really basic cos I only had half an hour to learn it with piano...and trying to figure out the chords. That also explains the bangy piano playing icon_wink.gif

    Whenever I see a post like this, I expect a real disaster.
    But, your video was a very pleasant surprise.
    I liked it a lot.

    nah, I will ever only sing as a hobby icon_razz.gif

    I'll tell you a little story. I started singing a few years ago. At the time I couldn't sing and every day I would keep trying and trying and trying, but I still couldn't sing well. Each night I would pray that one day I would sing better, to be able to develop a nice tone and vibrato. And then one day I achieved the vibrato I wanted and tried to progress from there onwards. Ok...that was a pretty pointless story -- I thought it was going somewhere...but I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm thankful to God for the gift of singing. Everyone is capable of making music anywhere at any time cos we all have our individulal instrument...I think that's very fascinating!

    Wow thanks guys, really didn't expect the comments icon_wink.gif

    I was feeling insecure about myself because I didn't feel like I fitted into the 'gay world'. Also I've recently been trying to find some gay friends in real life but haven't been doing very well. Hence why I was feeling down. However, I am not alone. These past few weeks I have been keeping in contact with other guys that are going through much worse problems than I am. I've been trying so so hard to help but at the same time dealing with my own insecurities too. The song is a wonderful one -- not least due to Adele's personal interpretation -- but because it communicates such a strong message that whenever you're feeling down there is always someone there to help even if you feel so alone in your troubles.

    My cover's not the best by any means due to only having just over half an hour to learn it -- I was actually reading the lyrics and chords off a sheet whilst playing lol..but nonetheless I'm glad you guys enjoyed it icon_smile.gif

    Thanking you with gratitude.

    Don't worry it's ok, feeling much better now icon_wink.gif

    Sometimes when you're feeling down you just need an outlet of some sort and for people to hear you out whether verbally, emotionally or creatively.

    Hope everyone is well!

    Thank you, and thank you for seeing through the imperfections in this video. I am a perfectionist and normally wouldn't post a singing video that I only did in 2 takes. However sometimes imperfections are what make something real and genuine.

    I am very happy that your spirit has rekindled. All the very best to you =)

    Imperfections? I see none in you sweetie!! a person who is capable to be emotionally available by sharing his vulnerabilities with others as you have shown, is in my book, a person who have master the secrets of perfection!! unfortunately most people confuse perfection with being an over achiever, a goal getter, being a perfect lover, or acquiring a certain level of societal status or happiness in their lives; when in fact perfection is achieved when you embrace everything that you are whether good or bad, and in the process learn more about your self!! you inspired me and for that I am thankful!

    Oh no, my ego needs to shut his ears, stop encouraging him lol!

    On a serious note, unfortunately I am one of those annoying perfection seeking people. It has its benefits but most of the time it results in self-deprecation and hypercriticism. Terrible huh? However I am working so hard to not be defeated by myself.
