So often I say to my students…..sing like you believe it! Make me believe you! What exactly does that mean? I just finished watching American Idol and Usher says to a few singers that if they can connect with the audience, make the audience believe, then they have done their job. Yes, point taken. I agree. But how do you get the audience to believe you, if you don’t believe yourself?
Number one, without a doubt, is self belief. The audience can see it, you can feel it. Is it real or is it fake? If it is fake then maybe you are trying to hard. Sing to yourself, sing for yourself, believe in yourself……..
