Do you want to become a famous singer? Get a big paying record deal and perform in front of millions? Well you are not alone as there are many people of all ages and backgrounds up and down the country who want to become famous singers or music artists. People like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears and Beyonce have inspired many people to pursue their dream of becoming a famous singer and you have to know what it takes to get to the top.
Firstly, you have to be a good singer. You have to actually be able to sing to a decent level. No one will buy your music if you can’t sing at all and no record company will sign you. Take note of the fact that I haven’t said you have to be an amazing singer as this isn’t true at all. Lady Gaga and Rihanna aren’t the greatest singers in the world yet they are probably some of the most famous at the moment. You need to be able to sing to a decent level as the other key to becoming famous is in your looks and personality.
You need to be able to market yourself. If we use Rihanna and Lady Gaga as an example again, you can see that whilst they aren’t the greatest singers they make up for it’s with their looks and personality. If you are someone that is already very good looking and you can sing to a good level then you are already way ahead of the game!
Just being good looking and a good singer isn’t enough to make you famous though. You need to get yourself out there and be discovered. Record your own tracks and invest in producing your own videos and build up a fan base. You are much more likely to be signed by a record label if you already have a fan base. These days with sites like Youtube and Twitter there is so many ways to promote yourself all from the comfort of your own home.
You could even try participating on shows like American Idol or X-factor. Even if you don’t actually win those shows you will still become very famous just from being on there.
