The Miami Glee Club, performing Franz Biebl’s Ave Maria in the Crypt of the National Shrine:

Oh, to see these men’s faces as they sing. But feel how much these voices can convey, in a language we can’t understand. For most of us, this is all non-verbal power.

And then there’s Bobby McFerrin:

One man. One voice. Moving an audience not just to enjoy, but to participate.

I’m not asking you to sing. But the analogy is apt. Recognize the power not just of your words, but of your voice, your body, your whole being to say what matters and to move people.
