There are those precocious kids, who, from the time they are born are destined for greatness as some of the finest singers of their times. Voices for the ages serenading us into eternity. All singers are gifted but for the 99% of singers who make it to the top, success and fame come at a price, they also know how to sing typically without training needed. You will need to have the right mental attitude that allows your talent to sprout and which allows you to fully exploit your gift. You will also need grit, determination and the right connections to catapult yourself from a talented dreamer into a superstar. What does it really take to be a famous singer?
You Really Have to Want It
As you think, so it becomes. To sing your way to fame and success, you really must believe in your abilities and have the hunger to pursue your passions. Without that relentless passion to improve on your vocal cords and vocal range, to grow your singing talent and depth and to pursue singing as a career and not as a hobby, you are probably going to end up like the millions of other heartbroken singers who dreamt about fame in music but never really mastered the grit and self-belief to follow through with their dreams.
Work on your voice and the lyrics
No amount of marketing and connections will take you to the top if you simply don’t have IT. As an aspiring superstar, you must spend a good amount of time working on your voice, style, and beats. Every singer has their trademark. Spend those remote years building and refining your voice and lyrics so that when you burst onto the scene, you really take the world by storm. Good singers always get better with time but only if you are willing to put in the hard work in growing and refining your music.
Seek out collaborations with other singers and music producers
With virtually millions of aspiring singers in the world, being a breakout singer is not easy. If you are just starting out, you could ride on the shoulders of other singers who have established fame so that you can gain your first taste of visibility. It is very easy to take it to the next level if you have had a high level of exposure.
Find a Reputable Music Promoter
Make friends with reputable and professional music promoters. If you are building your music career from the ground up, brick by brick, then you will have to do it one show, concert or performance at a time. The only kind of people who can give you access to those important shows are the music promoters, DJs and other leading players in the local and international music scene. Once your music is being heard beyond your shower or circle of dose friends, then the possibilities for fame and success are endless. You can also make friends with a few entertainment journalists so that they can begin covering your music shows.
Once you have established a footing in the industry, start doing it big. Pull the strings and enter big music performances and concerts. Have your own music promotional company and use tools such as Youtube to take your music to the public.
These tips will not always guarantee fame and success but if you have a golden voice and talent for singing, they are most likely, gradually, going to take you to the top.
