The "Mexico" song1This song should go a little slower. The way you are singing it, it is like an express train, like my subway experience! Do you remember my subway experience with the runaway train, where the conductor was arrested?
You are singing correctly and powerfully, but if you do not have the inner feeling, then it is like a parrot singing. For each and every song, please remember that the feeling is of supreme importance. You are all excellent singers. You can carry the tune perfectly, but I wish to get the feeling that you are invoking the heart and soul of Mexico and identifying yourself with the heart and soul of the song. You are singing absolutely perfectly, but please sing with feeling. You will see the difference.
