Hi, I am in a touring theatre show where I play Don Everly of The Everly Brothers. I have to sing for roughly 2 hours, 5-6 nights a week. Recently, I have been really struggling with my voice! I'm finding that songs I used to be able to sing easily are now becoming difficult, and songs that where high for me before and now near impossible! I'm currently taking a little time out just to rest my voice but I think my technique needs some work and would really love some advice! It almost feels like there's a barrier and I just cant get up to some of these notes! I also seem to be experiencing voice breaks while singing which I never had before!

But be warned that just sing does not devolop your voice. Good vocal exercises do!! And I'm not talking about warmups before your show, I'm talking about 30 minutes to 1 hour per day, six days a week training lip trails, tongue exercises, open Ah vowel...
If there isn't another way, I recommend to rest your voice all day long, drink water, and do good vocal warmups before the shows and sleep to rest your voice and your body.
