Transcript of HOW TO BE A FAMOUS SINGER AND HAVE SWAG

CONQUER YOUR FEARS
Contrary to what you might think, a lot of performers struggle with severe stage fright. If this is a problem for you, or if you're too hung up on getting the approval of others, find ways to confront your fears and increase your confidence. Sing in front of others often, whether it's in the car with friends or on a stage, and remember that others' opinions of you are not what's important - what matters is that you're working toward your dream.
SING IN PUBLIC
Book as many gigs as you can to get your voice out there - you never know who will be listening in the audience. Sing at private parties, county fairs
, store openings, rodeos,
sporting events, talent shows
, karaoke nights, and anywhere
else that will have you, paid
or not. Even if you don't get
spotted by a talent agent
right away, you're practicing
your stage presence and
getting used to being in front
of a crowd.
THE FINAL STEP
Learn how to handle criticism. Hey, it
happens - no matter how great you
are, some people just won't like your
voice. Even world-famous singers
have people who dislike them. Only
listen to constructive criticism if it can
actually help you improve your talent;
otherwise, ignore it. Don't get into
arguments or fights regarding your
dreams, and walk away from any
hecklers - odds are, they're just jealous.

PICK A GOOD SONG
Once you got that work on your next best song. Before you know it, you'll have a whole night covered, a gig of good stuff. If you don't write your own songs, pick good covers. A lot of singers don't write their own songs, and that's OK. Particularly when you're first starting out, you want people to pay more attention to the quality of your voice than the quality of your songwriting. Build up a "set list" of 10 to 15 covers you know you can really knock out of the park, and practice getting better at them.
Be determined and persistent
There's a lot of competition out there - thousands of people want the fame and fortune of a successful singing career. Most successful singers spend years working on their voices and playing low-paying gigs before they make it big. Don't lose sight of your goal, and resolve to be patient.
GET NOTICED
Some people have actually managed to become famous through posting videos of themselves singing on YouTube. (See Charice Pempengco, Austin Mahone, Greyson Chance and, most importantly, Justin Bieber.)
HOW TO BEHAVE
Become a publicity hound. Eat, breathe, and sleep attention. Look for photo ops. Speak up. Swipe up any chance to shake up the spotlight. Make yourself known.
ALWAYS SHOW YOUR BEST
When you're on-stage or networking with industry professionals, turn on the charm. Smile big, answer questions, and sing with enthusiasm, even if you're feeling terrible. Part of working in entertainment is being able to
create an atmosphere of fun and energy,
as if you're flipping a light switch.
NETWORK
Be in the places where successful musicians/producers meet (clubs, dance halls) and act like you're part of the industry, even if they don't know who you are. Go to a city known for music (such as Nashville, Memphis, NYC, LA, New Orleans, Austin or Las Vegas) and mix it up with the local musicians. Make connections with other musicians. You never know who might want to collaborate with you in the future, or introduce you to an agent.
you got it... congrats
