I just came back from a sugandoi contest at BBcafe, organized by DBKK. Did not win any prize or place but I'm glad I tried to gain the experience to compete with all the other 14 contestant - more experience and good singer. I challenge myself to see where is my level as a singer. At least I know where to improve and what I should do for the next competition.
Stop Here?!! Definitely no! The higher the contest is the higher the criticism and stress gonna be. My fellow fight now play alot in the vocal, which I am lack of that coz I know my vocal tecnique is not that strong and firm yet. For the next round I know what type of Song should I choose.
It doesn't mean if you can imitate the original singer voice and style means you are good. Even a simple song if you know how to play with the mode you can make the song more alive.
For me, I will find my identity and what is my strength in singing. My Vocal trainer use to tell me that I can do the belting voice quite good.. Hmm.. I'm happy to hear that coz it can say a bonus for me and I really thank God for that but for me to improve that I need to seek for lots of practise.
Sometimes I just felt like life isn't only a life but is a very good journey. God give us the body, talent, strength, courage... depends on us how we make use of it. He is so wonderful, everything has a time exc 2:10 and I now one day my hard work will be paid off but not because of fame, but for good, reach out to people that is my mission in my singing
