Hi, Marissa, it depends on what style you like to sing in. One that comes to mind with it fairly simple piano part is that Midler's the Rose. It also has a nice easy singing range. Are you a braille music learner, or a by ear learner? There is a piano by ear lesson on the rose that is available; I can't remember the URL of The website that has it, but if you search for piano by ear and Bill Brown in Google, it should come up. If you learn using braille music, you might try looking up some of the popular music lead sheets from NLS, where you can get the cords four songs and then do your own accompaniment style.

Hope this helps,
Terrence, also a fairly simple level piano player.

Someone told me that I should sing a song, while playing piano.  I'm a soprano, (so I am told), and I'm looking for a relatively easy song to play on piano, but has words.  What I mean by that is, I'm looking for a song that has words, but also has a pattern on piano, that's not too difficult.
