What’s with the myth all blind people are good with music?

I’ve never for the life of me understood why so many in the sighted world seem to think that simply because a person is blind it means they are good at any sort of musical performance. Well let me set the record straight it doesn’t work like that, we have to work at it just the same as everyone else, its not an overnight thing. I get really annoyed when people lose it every time I tell them I can sing because they act like I don’t work at it, no I do and so do all blind artists. Oh and some in the blind community aren’t good at music at all even with months and months of work but that’s normal because not every blind person is the same just like not every sighted person is the same.
