Michael Jordan V.S Karaoke Singing - The Top Myth

Sep 10, 2008
It is really common for someone to think that they weren't intended to be a singer - they just "weren't born with it." There is a primary group of individuals to blame for this myth: the ignorant.

For someone to say "singing is something you have to be born with" is like saying "swimming skills are something you have to be born with." Tell Michael Jordan that it is something you have to be born with. You all know the story. Michael Jordan got Disregarded from his high school basketball team.

He didn't take that very well so he commenced exercising all day every single day. Then he made the team. Then he attained a spot on one of the most respected college basketball squads in the nation. Then he was draughted to the NBA and went down in history as one of the unsurpassed to ever play the game. Basketball accomplishments aren't something you have to be born with, and neither are musical skills.

Anybody can learn how to sing.

There is something else to blame: the popular culture's hit show "American Idol." The show is Planned for entertainment, it is a BUSINESS. How do they get money? They sell all of the fledgling vocalists to America as a kind of entertainment. Also picture that those vocalists are specifically picked out because they are the worst case scenarios of singers who don't know how to apply their articulation and have no control over pitch. That can be changed.

Back to the ignorant. Masses who don't recognise anything about singing will say that all of those inferior American Idol auditioners are tone deaf. If you believe they are all tone deaf then I am glad you are reading this. They aren't tone deaf. They just don't know how to utilize their voice. Tone deafness is in reality very unusual. The real trouble is a lack of vocal knowledge. I was in the similar spot as those "tone deaf singers." Anybody who seen me sing would immediately point the finger and judge me as "tone deaf." I am NOT tone deaf. When I met Eddy, he took me through some pitch valuation practises and it was clear that I am not tone deaf at all - I just didn't recognize how to use my voice. I could hear the tune and pitches absolutely clear IN MY HEAD, but as soon as I tried to render it into vocals, I didn't know HOW to do it - therefore it SEEMED as if I was tone deaf.

So the next time you hear a singer that you would label as "tone deaf," think again. They in all probability just don't know how to use their voice.
