    my talent.

    For family background reasons, I have never pursued singing until recently. But, I went to a singing workshop to get over my fear of singing a while back. I was told that I had a naturally operatic voice and that had I been trained I would have been quite good. (The teacher was a professional opera singer, so I trust her assessment.)

    I've also recorded the background vocals for a friend's CD. She heard me singing to myself when prepping for my sister's wedding and asked me to do it. I'd never been in a recording studio before and the engineer there later told her that he couldn't believe I wasn't a professional. We layered my voice to create what sounded like a choir full of harmonies behind her, as she was looking for an ethereal sound.

    I have a strong voice. I'm simply not trained.
