Transcript of Life as a Singer/Songwriter

For my Personal Interest Project (P.I.P.), I decided to create a Prezi on singers/songwriters. I always wondered how once-ordinary people with so much amazing talent could become so famous, and what process they all go through to spread the phase of their songs to the whole world. It's crazy to think that it can take only so little to become such a sensation! To get a better idea of how people start their music career, I did a bit of research on one of my favourite bands, Hedley. I hope you like my Prezi!
