Singing Issues - Is it normal that not everyone feels what you are singing?

Hi KTVA,

Currently I have been thinking about something that I am dealing with lately. Sometimes, it admittedly bugs me a bit if a friend of mine or someone I know does not 'feel genuine emotion' from my singing although there are others who do. Even though you know it is just their opinion, sometimes you wonder if this ever happens to any of you, even professionals. This often creates that never-ending thought of whether you can at least make it to a semi-pro level as a singer, because at the end of the day a good singer touches audiences.

If that has ever happened to you, how do you deal with such issues?

Regards,
Tim :)

    Haters gonna hate. Some people see life and the world through negative lenses. People who thrive on negativity cannot resist bringing someone else down in order to try to elevate themselves.

    Disregard haters.

    There are many people who find my voice unpleasant.
    Does that matter to me? No,because I like my singing.

    I much rather having a voice that no one but me enjoys that the opposite.

    If you try to please others instead,you might end up having a voice you can't stand.

    There are many singers out of there who try to please the biggest amount of people they possibly can,whereas there are some whose main vocal goal is to sing the way they want.

    Choosing your vocal goals is up to you.

    Yep. Totally normal. Ultimately you sing for yourself. It’s part of who you are. If people don’t like it, that’s on them... their loss.

    In my language we say: "The best revenge is a nice life." - Let them feel their hare. Enjoy your progress you will have by constant practice. I practice singing for myself. And I never thought how good it is for my soul. Every time I come back from practice session from the basement I feel so relaxed and satisfied. Progress will come by itself if you keep practicing as perfect as you can.

    My 2 cents,
    Doc

    There are also times when even professional singers have a hard time connecting with the audience. I have been to many where I thought "hmmm, not the best from them" but now that I understand the work that goes into singing I can appreciate the effort that they put into the show and the performance, instead of just being disappointed (although I'm very aware of technique now as well 😅)
    I try to connect the song to myself, not possible with all songs of course but if I feel it then I'm happy.
