Attention Vocally Injured! Lose Your Vocal Injuries and Become “The Biggest Loser”!
More and more professional artists end up with the vocal injuries.
Nearly every week, we hear that various concerts and tours have been canceled and the lead singers (either a soloist or band lead singer) just about to undergo a vocal cord surgery.
Why does it happen and why it happens to so many artists? Is it because they are overworked and over-stressed? I think that definitely the above are the factors. However, if their technical merit of their singing had been intact, less tragedies and cancellations of their performances would take place.
So, human being puzzle (in a manner of speaking), like any puzzle, has many components and pieces, which have to fall into the right places. Those singers’ lifestyles, naturally, are very active and filled with a lot of appearances, interviews and performances.
Due to the above, their immune systems become weakened; and thus, as well, they could much easier pick up any viruses or any sicknesses for that matter. In their busy lives, their voices are in the most used mode; and thus, for them to get any vocal injury is literally not too difficult.
The other aspect of it is a lack of knowledge of how to power their voice with no pain or strain on their vocal anatomy. Also a lack of knowledge of how to work smart and not hard; and with the minimum effort achieve the maximum result.
The latter will assure “The Biggest Winner” rather then “The Biggest Loser”; however, if they manage to “lose” their vocal injuries, or better yet, not to acquire them in the first place, they will become “ the biggest loser” (in the better understanding of that word).
I could compare it with a TV show, In fact, named “The Biggest Loser”. That show is about the struggle of very obese people who forever have been struggling with their excess weight. They obviously have been unable to lose that much weight on their own, and they also realized (some of them just in time) that they need professional help not only to lose their weight, but also to save their lives. Was that easy for them? Not at all! But majority of them claimed their lives back; and some of them just simply saved their lives.
Yes, they became “The Biggest Losers”; but in reality, They Are The Champions!
The band “Queen” performed an all time well-known song called “We Are The Champions”. This song is indeed very inspirational and it is applicable to all of us!
So if you, my reader, also have any vocal issues, (speaking or singing), become inspired to learn how to avoid vocal injuries. However, if they have already occurred, learn how to fix all of your vocal imperfections and acquire a whole new application of voice, using all together new parts of your anatomy to save, protect and prosper your voice to the foreseeable future!
