It sounds like a tall order, “Changing the world with your voice,” but if others can do it, so can you!
There are a few critical ingredients needed to make it happen:
1: The story
It’s called a “song” but in order to change the world, it needs to be more than just a song. The story needs be something you generate from the very bottom of your soul, something you believe in with every fiber of your being. Whatever it is you have to say doesn’t need to be complicated, it just has to come from YOU. People will notice AND be moved by your song if you believe in it completely. The words themselves DON’T necessarily need to come from you, if there are existing songs that YOU relate to or that move YOUR soul, you can take it and make it YOURS.
2: Be afraid – but don’t show it
“Leadership is the ability to hide your panic from others”
– Lao Tuz
Of course it’s nerve racking to deliver the most amazing vocal performance of your life, but that’s the point! You need to go to a place you’ve never been before and overcome it. As a vocalist you have no instrument to hide behind, it’s just you, all exposed for the world to see. You need to sit in that fear and use it as fuel. We have some great tutorials on HOW TO OVERCOME STAGE FRIGHT.
3: Nail your singing technique
Anyone can get lucky and sing a great song, but can you do it again? And again? And again? Your world changing song and vocal performance will come when your singing technique is flawless and you are completely in tune with your mind, spirit and body. The path your song takes is very important, it starts in your spirit, goes to the brain, then passes through your diaphragm, up through your throat, and out of your mouth. Then it enters the listeners ears and brain, and in order for it to move their soul, it needs to be as pure on arrival as it was on departure. Learning how to sing properly will change everything.
