Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice, often constrasted with speech. Air is expelled with the diaphragm as with ordinary breathing, and the pitch is altered with the vocal cords. With the lips closed, this is called humming. A piece of music that is sung is called a song; someone who sings is called a singer. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singing [Aug 2005]

Protest song

A protest song is a song intended to protest perceived problems in society which can include injustice, racial discrimination, war, globalization, inflation, social inequalities and so on. Protest songs are generally associated with folk music, but in recent times they have come from all genres of music, including punk rock and hip hop. Such songs become popular during times of social disruption and among social groups and their supporters. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protest_song [Nov ]
