Biography

John says that anyone can sing, and in fact most of us do if we think no one else is listening! When we sing, it makes us feel good. Scientific research shows that singing is good for us in many ways. So why do some people think they can sing and others don’t?

Our perceptions of our voice are built up over many years, based on our experiences of using our voices. When we can peel off the layers (like an onion) that we have put on to protect ourselves over the years, we learn that we do indeed have a beautiful voice.

Have you noticed that all children think they can sing? It is not until they get older and start to take on other people’s opinions that they start to change how they think about themselves.

Singchronicity provides the tools and the methods to rediscover the joy of sound and song and takes you back into your heart to experience true peace and joy.

Lyrics

LOVE

Written By: John Rodriquez

Love, love, love, love
L-O-V-E-E-E, L-O-V-E
I am love
You are love
We are love
Yes we are
We are Living One Vibrational Energy

Simple Truth

Written By: John Rodriquez

As we understand each other, our differences will fade
Our differences will fade away.

It’s a simple truth, we are one
Simple truth, we are one
One spirit, one race, we are one.

Alle, alleluia

Unity, unity in diversity

Let Them Go

Written By: John Rodriquez

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Let them go, let them go
Yes we can, yes we can
Lead on, lead on

Take the time to know yourself, take a look inside
Remove the ghosts from which your magnificence is denied
Find that limiting judgement, hear that cynicism, know that fear
Pick them up and embrace them, knowing that the time is here

The time has come to collect them, weight them down and wrap them well
Cast them overboard into the giant ocean swell
Release them from your existence, on your raft, let them go
Never again to be your hindrance, now that you know

In their ugliness discard them
To become the fertiliser for your own growth
Out of the rotting compost of judgements, cynicisms and fears
A plantation of magnificent flowers miraculously appears

So, let them go, let them go, let them go
Yes we can, yes we can, yes we can
Lead on, lead on, lead on

Let them go, let them go, let them go

LOVE

Written By: John Rodriquez

Love, love, love, love
L-O-V-E-E-E, L-O-V-E-E-E
I am love
You are love
We are love
Yes we are
We are Living One Vibrational Energy
Living One Vibrational Energy

It's Your Turn To Sing

Written By: John Rodriquez

It’s Your Turn To Sing

It’s time to start
To practise your art
You know in your heart
It’s your turn to sing

It’s your paradigm
And now is your time
For you’re in your prime
It’s your turn to sing

Chorus
Sing a song for joy
Sing it from your heart
Sing a song for joy now
Sing it from your heart

Your passions ignite
You’ve seen the light
You know it’s right
It’s your turn to sing

Chorus

It’s your turn to give
So others can live
Your past you forgive
It’s your turn to sing

Chorus x 2

It’s time to start
To practise your art
You know in your heart
It’s your turn to sing

It’s your turn to sing
It’s your turn to sing

The Rising of the Sun

Written By: John Rodriquez

The Rising of the Sun

V1
Colours; nature’s palette slowly comes alive
As I sit on the sand, waiting for the dawn of day
With expectation rising I wait
I patiently wait for the rising of the sun

V2
Colours delicately dance across the sky
Frolicking like butterflies flirting in the breeze
I’m warmed by the heat of intense desire
Here comes the rising; the rising of the sun

Chorus
The rising of the sun; the rising of the sun

V3
Heaven; her golden secret now unveiled
Exposing her beauty with innocent delight
I’m captive in the flame of her burning fire
I’m quivering at the sight of the rising of the sun

Chorus
The rising of the sun; the rising of the sun
The rising of the sun; the rising of the sun

Bridge
Lost in time, nothing is material
In this heavenly moment, sacred and ethereal
In rapture with the angels we become one
In joyous union with the rising of the sun
The rising of the sun

The rising of the sun; the rising of the sun
The rising of the sun; the rising of the sun

V4
Colours; colours slowly fade away
As I sit on the sand, thankful for the dawn of day
In the afterglow I know
There’ll always be another rising of the sun

Coda
Another rising of the sun; another rising of the sun
I love the rising of the sun; I love the rising of the sun
The rising of the sun, the rising of the sun
