vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in

I do not come from a very musical family and that has always made me so sad. I love music and wish that I had been blessed with the gift that brings so much joy personally and to others. My mother's singing voice was actually the worst one I have ever heard--and I've watched a lot of American Idol.
On the other hand, my grandmother had a beautiful soprano voice and my earliest memories are of her rocking me and singing to me in German, specifically O' Tannenbaum.

My Grandmother was everything good and kind and loving. She called me Dolly Dimples. I miss her every day.
