While I too play and sing, I’m not really sure if I could pull it off.  However, I just got a copy of Logic Pro X 10.4 and might be willing to try to “spice up” what someone else would do.  Not sure how steep the learning curve is for the program, but I would bet someone out there could do a better job than I, but I will try.
