Last week, at the 2016 #Grammys, Adele turned in a very poor live performance - she even has admitted it herself. I've seen several interviews in which she talks about the impact on stage fright on her performances. Yes, stage fear can keep you from breathing fully (so you won't be able to support your voice); your hands may shake; your voice could quiver; and you won't be able to hit your high notes. It's too bad that she suffers from stage fear - it really robs you of the enjoyment of sharing your music.
The video below is a LIVE Periscope TV broadcast I did explaining that getting rid of stage fear is a process with several levels and approaches. One of the most important is the MENTAL PREPARATION you've got to do days and weeks before you even step on stage.
Taking deep breaths before you're waiting to go on will never help you calm down and focus.
Watch this short video to learn an easy, but necessary process that will help you mentally focus on your STORY, not the audience, while creating a deep emotional connection with your song and the people you're sharing your music with.
