In this week's episode of Sing to Inspire, we had a chat with Classical MPR's Ward Jacobson. Ward recently published this gripping essay about what it felt like to sing again.
During our conversation, we asked Ward to describe how he felt after that first rehearsal back. "At the end of the rehearsal, I was exhausted, but at the same time I was exhilarated. There was this energy I had back, almost like this electric cord of my life had been plugged back in.", said Jacobson who recently returned to singing after a long, hard battle with leukemia.
