How to Make your Performance Look Real by Internalizing the Lyrics.


Internalize: Give yourself a few seconds to ponder on the meaning of the lyrics. For example, Willie Nelson’s lyrics, “Crazy, I’m crazy for feeling so lonely …” could invoke a variety of thoughts. When Patsy Cline sings “Crazy,” we can feel the yearning in her voice. As the singer, you make the song your own by choosing how you are going to internalize those lyrics; loneliness, foolishness, sadness, vulnerability, etc. As you take those seconds to internalize the lyrics, your face and your entire body will begin to communicate that internalization to your audience.


See you on stage!
