Want To Become A Pop Star?

Many aspirant amateur singers want to become pop stars. Are you one of them? If you are, do you have what it takes to become a pop star?

The transition from an amateur singer to become a professional can be a very frightening experience and this is even more so in careers such as singing where you need to perform in front of big audiences scrutinizing your every move and looking for any mistakes that you may make.

Well, no need to freak out just yet. This is because there are thousands of amateur singers turning pro everyday and so why not you. If you are well prepared and have taken the right lessons and training, have practiced really hard, then your dream of becoming a pop star is within reach.

want to become a pop starMany people believed that all you need is to have a good voice to be a successful singer. They can never be further away from the truth. No doubt having a good voice is great, but to be a successful pop star means so much more than that. It is the total package which includes looks, dress, feel, confidence, charisma and even magical X factor that woo your audience.

Forget about being pop star if you can't sing well. Yup, you don't have to tell me this is sheer common sense, but many amateurs are living under the delusion that they are really good singers. They don't even know that they can't sing!

Singing well means that you can hit the notes easily without straining your voice, have a comfortable and pleasant vocal range, your sense of rhythm is perfect, you can deliver the song with its message that moves your audience and many more tangibles and intangibles.

You also have to be a great performer and personality to connect with your fans. Let me put it more candidly, you need to be trained. Even the biggest pop superstars are trained and that is why they are so good at it!

Never and I say it again, never make the big mistake of believing your friends and relatives when they say that you are a good singer. Just how can they give you an honest assessment when they don't want to hurt your ego?

want to become a pop starLook at the many American idol rejects during the audition phase of the singing reality show. Almost all of the idol wannabes who were eliminated in the early part of the show remarked that their friends or mom and dad often praised them about their singing abilities. However when they open their mouths to sing, you can see that most of them can't even sing at all.

The way you present yourself to your audience is also very important. This alone can make or break your singing career as your connection with your audience is the cornerstone of your singing career. Your road to being a successful pop star hinges on how you are perceived by your audience. They either take a liking to you or hurl criticisms at you. There is no middle path unless you are mediocre.

You must also perfect your audience interaction skills because you need engage them and banter with them now and then to establish connection with your audience. As such, your shows must be well rehearsed and these rehearsals should include introducing yourself and your band, about the songs you are singing, the jokes you are going to tell and the theme of your bantering.

So having a good voice is not enough to make you a pop star or an overnight sensation. Therefore do a due diligence on yourself and see where you can improve and who knows, one day you may just be the super pop star of your dreams.
