Is singing a talent? It is for sure, as there are people that are born to sing like angels. Singing can also be taught, and talented singers must continue to learn. Honing a singing talent is a lifelong adventure, and people that are passionate about their talents enjoy the idea of exploring them and where they may lead.
Some people are natural singers and can grace the stage without much, if any, development. Yet that doesn’t mean there aren’t all kinds of technical terms and skills necessary to learn in order to become an even better singer. People learn that quickly when they try to make singing a profession.
You might have heard that singers have to develop their diaphragm. It’s so important because singers have to belt out songs in full voice and annunciate. It’s one thing to sing softly and beautifully in the right key and feel as if you just might sound like Celine Dion. Yet it’s a whole different story to belt a song like her in full voice and give everyone goosebumps.
Singers develop their talents over time. It is quite clear to me that one of the biggest things new singers need to learn is confidence. Believing in themselves, and having others believe in them, helps foster this confidence that they don’t need to softly sit on their talent or just sing in the shower.
As young singers grow, they have dreams of using their talents to bless others. In today’s world, singers can showcase their talent to the world via YouTube, SoundCloud and social media, among other platforms. This gives them a chance to unleash their talents full voice and with full confidence, still with a little bit of anonymity in play.
Those platforms are a huge benefit to singers, and talent scouts monitor those videos and take notice. More and more people are showcasing their talents vs sitting on them, and singing is one of those talents. Think about all the singing competitions in today’s world and how more people are getting the opportunity to start singing careers.
Not only that, but they get to take a more hands-on approach when it comes to marketing, too. People are getting some recording studio time, releasing singles on iTunes, setting up social media accounts and even making money off of viral videos before they launch their actual singing careers.
Of course, singing is first a talent and a passion. People aren’t in it for the money. Yet some are able to launch careers that pay the bills and then some after hard work. It takes time, dedication and passionate patience.
Is singing a talent? You betcha. It is one of the most acclaimed talents, one where you can really bless millions of people if you work hard and those people tune in to you. If you are a passionate singer, I’ve got one message for you to focus on that I want you to remember. That message is this: Never, ever, for any reason, give up.
