Dicen por ahí que cantar es fácil… Desde mi percepción cómo Vocal Coach no hay nada más lejos de la realidad. Hay un conjunto de factores que deben conjugarse para que la magia se haga presente en tan sólo el momento de aproximarse al micrófono.
They say that singing is easy... From my perception as a Vocal Coach, nothing could be further from the truth. There is a set of factors that must be conjugated so that the magic becomes present in just the moment of approaching the microphone.
First of all you have to be fully present, that is aware of the stage, its area, the microphone, the monitors...sometimes adapting to a confined space, unfamiliar faces and disturbing looks. The mere fact of strongly manifesting your presence creates the atmosphere of a stage.
Then be comfortable with what you are projecting as an artist and reflect that certainty. Then begins the most important part which is breathing and connecting with that greater force that makes you face that maelstrom and keeps you firm in your purpose of sharing your music, your great passion, what singing means to you.
Maintain serenity at all times because you know you have rehearsed so much that it gives you the confidence to know what you are doing. Forgetting about yourself and melting into the story you are telling with careful diction and without losing the rhythm, the intonation, the lyrics.
No, it is not easy to sing. It is an act of faith to bare your soul in front of an unknown audience, to feel vulnerable in the face of any hint of insecurity, and it takes courage.
Achieving that high pitch that was so difficult for you and at the same time making the audience feel all the emotion that your being is experiencing is not an easy thing to do, and even less so in approximately 4 minutes that for an instant are an eternity. It is an art that deserves all the respect.
Talent is useless if it is not accompanied by hours of rehearsals, vocalization, stage aptitude in order to make those minutes... an unforgettable moment. And so much work for what? Simply because it is priceless the adrenaline that every artist experiences on stage, for the pleasure of demonstrating his art, and definitely for the applause and feedback he receives from the public. Finally, the greatest motivation: recognition, which makes all the sacrifice and effort worthwhile.
