Stage fright can kill a performer's next stage appearance. The first time is important in order for it to lead to another try. Each time you go up on stage is a different experience. This article will help you survive every stage experience.

Three items that you must NOT forget in stage singing

Many people sang MANY different songs all through out their lives. The thing in this section is about 'Singing on stage' and how to 'survive' it with confidence. I have been on stage twice already and I have to admit my knees shake and it feels like all my guts dried out.

But let me give you some tips...

When singing on stage,


I witnessed a karaoke contest in my community a few days back and this is what some singers LACK. They just sing the music but they don't feel the spirit of the lyrics on it. To make other people feel the emotion of the song You, yourself must feel it first. What's the use of singing a sad song if you're smiling all throughout? What's the use of singing a fast song if you're not even moving and being energetic?

The point I'm stressing out is:


Don't just stand there! Move!

It's either you move around the stage or make hand gestures. You must walk or clap your hands. Just 'Standing' there makes a happy song dull,boring and lifeless; so make sure you communicate the message of they song by using hand gestures so that your audience can feel your music.
I asked my Biology teacher once: "Why do you keep doing weird hand gestures like putting your hands up in the air and moving it in circles?" Her reply was, "So that even though the lecture is boring your attention will still come to me because of my weird hand gestures." Now I know why I don't fall asleep in her classes.

The most important one of all....


This is very important especially in singing songs that you know. Many has experienced it. (E.G:When I was your man,White Horse, We are never ever getting back together)

Sometimes in singing,

**How you deliver the song
**How you feel the song
**Your Voice
