So I heard this interesting saying the other day:
If you can’t sing better, sing louder!
It’s funny that people actually do that type of thing all the time.
My colleagues boss told someone I know:
You’re a fake it till you make it type of person
This can apply to all sort of activities and not just singing.
— Public speaking, your job, sports, cooking, etc.
Often, people have to do things that they really just don’t do very well.
– Maybe it’s not their forte.
– Maybe they’re just not into it.
But rather than call it for what it is.
Instead, they pretend and make a show out of it.
They exaggerate what they think they are supposed to do.
Or they try to compensate with something tangential.
Hey, maybe no will notice.
But people eventually catch-on and do know when you’re lip-singing and faking your way through or just screaming out the lyrics to mask how horrible you singing is.
Better to be honest and admit what you can and can’t do.
Take some classes or get some training.
Practice, practice, practice.
Or even consider doing something else that you do enjoy and are good it.
Either way, you don’t want to be the one singing loudly their whole life. 😉
