This tip will make the biggest difference in your singing performance.

And you can do it immediately.

Put simply, it’s finding (and singing) your “truth”. So what does that mean?

Let’s look at some examples.

The worst singers (and why they’re amazing)

If you looked at a list of the greatest songs of all time, chances are it would include performances by singers who (if we’re honest), aren’t that great at singing.

Have a listen.

Leonard Cohen
Bob Dylan
Jennifer Lopez
Alanis Morisette

All of the singers above are examples of people who don’t have the best “technical” voices.

Leonard Cohen doesn’t really sing. It’s more like sustained speech. Bob Dylan is the perfect example of a nasal singer.

Jennifer Lopez doesn’t have a very strong or powerful voice, and Alanis Morissette has a vocal “flip” that shows up again and again.

But here’s the thing…

It doesn’t matter!

Everything that you could criticize these singers for technically is actually what made them all so popular. They’re unique.

So if technique isn’t the #1 thing that will make you successful, what is?

Well, it all goes back to our point at the start. It’s all about finding (and singing) your truth.

Let’s explore that a bit more.

Finding the truth

Finding your truth means finding a way for you to feel connected to the song. You want to understand its meaning to you.

  • What do the lyrics mean to you?
  • How do they make you feel?
  • How does that physically feel in your body?

Maybe it’s a memory of your childhood or an experience that really meant something to you. Now obviously it’s easier to find the truth of a song when you wrote it. Hallelujah probably always meant more to Leonard Cohen than anyone else.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t find your own meaning in the words.

And when you do, try to express that through your singing.

It may not be technically perfect, and as you progress and develop you will be able to do it better.

But connecting to your song is the #1 tip for singing success that you can do RIGHT NOW.
