Love Life and Barbershop. This is why I started to sing. I love singing in my local barbershop chorus. It’s changed my life for better and I’m not just a mum anymore, I’m me. I have learnt so much, made wonderful friends and feel now that I am living rather than existing. This article is about why I joined and the fear of going to my first rehearsal. My Life At The Time. I wanted to get out of the the house as every day was groundhog day. Everyone taking and nobody thanking.
