When I told my Father that I was going to pursue a degree in Voice he said to me, "When are you going to stop embarrassing yourself acting like you can sing, you are no good and will never be able to sing so give it up."
Then later when I received a "Carpenters" Scholarship for Voice I introduced my Father to Richard Carpenter. After talking to Richard my Father said to me later, "Well I guess you can sing because Richard says you can and are in fact very good, and well...I trust his opinion!"
I never really cared what my Father thought but it was nice to hear him admit that perhaps he was wrong and that I could indeed sing!
