Singing Tips - Getting Emotion into your singing
There are two kinds of singer in my opinion - technical and emotional. Heartfelt words of songs can bring us all back to a moment in time, a moment of intense joy or extreme sadness.
So the ability of the singer to bring emotion across is key in a good performance. But how do you do that?
Many young singers believe that they have to put something onto the words in order to express them correctly but in fact all you have to do is mean what you say.
That's your job as a singer - sing the word with the same focus and concentration you have when you're talking to a friend.
For example, when you say the word rose, what comes into your mind? What colour is the rose? Is it open or just a bud? Is it in a vase or on a bush? etc etc … All that information will be instantly in your mind when you say the word so do the same when you sing the word …. your concentration, if it is totally on what you're saying will bring those same expressions and emotions into play. And that in turn will allow the audience to see their own images and experience their own emotions.
If you are thinking about the shopping list, or what you're wearing, or worrying about what people think of you while you're performing, then you're not concentrating on the words. Try changing your focus and you'll find that all your nerves disappear and any of the problems you're having with your voice will start to vanish.
