Singers: Are you more concerned with impressing people or inspiring them?

Pictured: #kellyclarkson giving one of the most moving performances I’ve ever seen on American Idol: “Piece By Piece” ✨⁣

I was talking to a student the other day about WHY we sing. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

You might not think it’s important but it’s everything. It completely changes the way we sing. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Singers who sing to impress: They throw in extra flourishes and high notes and always sing loud. They are not heartfelt or related to their audiences and the moment.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Singers who sing to inspire: They are the ones you trust. You know they’ve “been there” too. Their voice is a best friend that gets you through your childhood, your breakups and pandemics.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

What kind of singer do you want to be? ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

You need very little skill as a singer to inspire people, actually⁣⁣

⁣⁣

If you saw an elderly person at a nursing home with a croaking voice singing “We Are the World” right now⁣⁣

⁣⁣

You’d cry into your bowl of soup⁣⁣

⁣⁣

And you’d believe in hope again ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

You’d share it with your friends and it would go viral⁣⁣

⁣⁣

While it’s always lovely to sound good, it’s the spirit with which you sing, that really helps you stand out.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Plenty of technically great singers never gain any traction because they are in their head and lose the audience.

⁣⁣

I want you to free yourself from the need to impress. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Let singing be about love and service and fun. You will forget about your troubles. And you will shine.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

And yes, you will begin to sound better because you will release mental and physical tension. You can discover a new vocal technique from THIS foundation of spiritual freedom. ⁣⁣

Now I want to hear from you- who are the singers that help you get through life? ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

My first inspirational singers were #sarahmclachlan and #anidifranco💜💜
