One of the greatest aspects to being able to sing really well is to go out and perform in front of a live audience and get positive feedback in the form of applause. The louder and more rapturous that applause, the better you’ll know you were!
So what does singing in a live situation entail and what are the things you should be looking out for?
Live on Stage
Whether you are standing up in front of real people in a small bar or club or if you’re on a big stage performing to hundreds or even thousands of people, the skills you will need and the techniques you should employ are pretty much the same. As long as there are people listening to you sing to them, you need to do your very best and make their day in the best possible way.
That means when you’re singing live, coming over with your best voice, in tune and with as much feeling or “soul” as you can muster. An audience is usually very receptive to a powerful performance and putting everything you’ve got into yours will undoubtedly rub off on the onlookers.
It’s a kind of mental and physical transference of emotion and aura that you transmit to your listeners and the more powerfully you can do that, the more moved will be that audience (and the greater will be the resulting applause). So why should you do your absolute best whether you’re performing to a dozen people or a crown of 12,000 for example?
Being At Your Best No Matter What
It’s all about being at your absolute best no matter what the size of your audience. No matter how many or how few people are enjoying your output, you owe it to yourself to be the best you can be. After all, it may be that one of that handful of listening people turns out to be a prominent member of the music industry who just happens to be in the right place at the right time for you.
If you gave any less than your best, how could you realistically expect a top music producer to take a keen interest in you? The answer is that this is a fickle business and giving it your all can result in a major transformation of your entire life if the right person happens to be listening at the right time!
So always do your very best, give it everything you’ve got. And no matter how few or how many people are standing or sitting in front of you when you do it, any day could be your lucky day!
