Does anyone else here enjoy singing as a hobby?

My Mom sang a lot when I was a kid growing up. I would like to sing but I wish that someone else in my family would like to sing as well because I would love to sing harmonies with someone. I like the sound in person of hearing when two voices converge harmonically. So I don't sing as a hobby, but I would like to.

I really enjoy singing, it's kinda like a stim for me. Calms me when I'm upset, especially when I'm singing along to my favorite artists.

I love singing and recording my own voice. It's made me a lot more confident to release my own music

Singing is actually a sort of my stim. I often do it unconciusly.
Also, I enjoy singing with people.

I enjoy singing whenever I get the opportunity. In fact, I've previously auditioned for American Idol twice. I hope to audition again within the next year or two before I'm too old to do it anymore.

Like others have mentioned, it can be like a stim at times.

I have a tendency to loop fragments over and over again.

I can perceive the tones from things like motors and like to harmonize with it with major 3rds, Perfect 4ths, and Perfect 5ths. It's especially fun if the motor is moving and you have to go along with the Doppler effect.

For some odd reason I have nearly perfect singing pitch in falsetto but not nearly as much so in regular singing voice.

I enjoy singing and I've gotten relatively good at it through lifelong practice. I'm no Sinatra, but I can hold my own in pop-punk and comedy music.

Speaking of Sinatra, I actually share his birthday.
