Singing with Covid
Our latest host, Mikel, expresses the challenges of singing while sick and shares tricks to perform even when not feeling your best. Enjoy the premiere of his song "Neverland."  @thehigh5show Neverland Lyrics: Infinite fall, laid us down with such ease. A forever wall, built to keep you from me. An endless night, where we run away together. Eternal light, guiding us to neverland. Our love is so young, we can fly towards the sun. We’ll fight the pirates wit for wit, oh yea! I’ll please you and treasure your time. We will never say never unless we are talking about Neverland.
