Singing a song is about telling a story. Connecting with your audience to convey an emotional message can be a tough gig. Firstly, you need to connect with your song, and then connect that song to the audience. So how do you begin to develop a connection with the words you are singing? Take some time to break down the song. Ask yourself ‘What is the story here? What is the point? What does the music add to the words? What do you want to impart in your audience?’ No two people express an emotion the same way, and it’s the same with music. Even your audience will respond individually and as long as your performance is thoughtful, honest and candid, your story will be compelling to those who hear it.
