In my studio, I have often been asked the question..”How do I sing like my favorite singer?” I always ask ‘What is it that you like about your favorite singer? Is it the dynamic phrasing, the emotion, the words, the passionate performance, the clarity of sound and diverse emotion expressed through the singers voice and presence?” I say incorporate the best aspects of them but never copy them and try to sound exactly like this person or be that person. You will be too busy copying and trying to be them and you will have a diluted disconnected performance and not be aware of your own voice.
The true singer knows himself/herself and her voice. To be another singer is not possible because No human voice is identical. We are all unique human beings. Our voice with the proper tools of breathing, clarity of sound and vocal control enables us to freely access our unique gift from God. We must connect to the lyrics and our soul to the music. When this is achieved, a dynamic singer is present.
Think back on Michael Jackson his dynamic presence, clear voice, connection to words he sangs with the soul he felt not to mention his ability to incorporate dance with the incredible moon walk. There is only one Michael Jackson. He still is here hologram form as his performance lives on in our hearts. We are dynamic singers when we connect to the words and make them our own. Be the poet of your lyrics and your Sing your Best. No need to ever copy because you have the correct tools with the Acapelladiva Method to create the dynamics, the sound tone you want. Your instrument is yours.
Know your voice and embrace it. I love to help singers become great singers. It is my pleasure to share my tools so that more singers today have vocal ease and agility to achieve their vocal potential and Sing their Best!
