Singing and Aging

The only reason why I do not want to hear singers who are past their vocalprime is because it saddens me to hear voices that are mere shadows of whatthey once were. I know there are many who will give fulsome applause to afavourite singer regardless of their vocal performance simply because he orshe is actually appearing before them and they have fond memories ofprevious glorious performances. I have attended such performances andthey have only made my heart break. Legendary singers have no need to "slogaway" past their prime when they themselves are only too aware that theirvocal gifts are waning. Let them retire in peace!Regards,Jean Collen
