Help Singer's Allergies with the Viva La Voice Tonic!
I just attended a Conference where several people were weezing and sneezing. One woman even lost her voice, her poor vocal cords were so inflamed! Since it's Spring, lots of singers are suffering from allergies, because there's so much pollen in the air. I've had bad allergies most of my life, and they are not fun.
A great way to ease the effects of allergies is to drink my Viva la Voice Tonic for Singers. It soothes inflamed vocal cords; cleanses the system and gives you a great dose of Vitamin C! You can get it for free here: ENJOY!!

A common problem for singers is pushing too much air through their vocal cords when they sing. This not only robs you of vocal power, but causes you to push too hard to get more volume.
When the vocal cords are pushed apart because too much air is being forced through them, they can't vibrate together as they should, and therefore, your voice is weak and breathy. So you compensate by straining to make more sound, ending up with a harsh sound, and ultimately a damaged voice.
To get rid of that breathy sound, simply think of 'aiming the sound BACK' rather than pushing it FORWARD with a lot of air coming out. I talk a lot about this in my book From Shower To Stage....7 Easy Steps for Singing Like A Pro! and you can also see a demonstration in the video below.
Do you feel like you're at the dead end of a Cul-de-Sac and can't get out? If you are having voice problems or challenges, and aren't able to fully express yourself confidently, that affects all areas of your life!
I have a few tips for how to get back to that free-spirited person you USED to be in my April Voicegram. If you're tired of your groundhog day existence, it's time to rediscover some of your silliness!
