“The only thing better than singing is more singing.”
~ Ella Fitzgerald
American Idol started it and now there are easily a dozen singing contest shows on American television. High School Musical, Hair Spray, and Pitch Perfect popularized singing to young moviegoers and their parents and now Glee has made singing a primetime feature event.
Everyone loves to sing. Singing and listening to others sing makes us feel good. There are few forms of expression more compelling, more human than the sound of a human voice singing.
The singing contest show auditions have clearly demonstrated that not all of us should sing in public. Some of those with no gift love it so much that they are willing to risk a one-line zinger from a clever judge to try out. I suppose there is some TV entertainment value in showing those auditions, but that is not the key. These shows are dream makers.
They have made instant megastars out of unknowns like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. They have created careers for dozens of unknown singers who risked it all to hone their skills and pursue their bliss in front of millions.
Whether you have already achieved some success, you’re the next big thing waiting to happen, or you just love singing for the joy of singing, these affirmations are for you.
