Dear Vocal Community:
My recent blog post on “Ego and the Vocal Mask” really touched a nerve for many of you: singers, teachers, coaches, and others. I have received Facebook messages, tweets, instant messages, and phone calls from all over the world in the past 24 hours expressing gratitude for it. The post went viral really quickly and has been seen over 6,500 times in the past 24 hours.
And before my ‘ego’ jumps in here and claims credit for MY work – ha! – let me just say that I believe a deeper dialogue has opened up regarding the issue of authenticity in singing. I will continue in the next several weeks and months to encourage this conversation, and I am so grateful to every single person that has opened their hearts to me.
When I envisioned what my life would be, it was always to help and touch others’ lives; making them happier and more open and honest. I’m grateful in some small way to be of service to all of you.
Let’s stand together now, and work to bring our collective voices to the world with greater authenticity and more self-respect and love.
Humbly submitted to you with much warmth,
