If you want to sing like your favourite artist, then in this video I will show you one singing method that you can use to start sounding more like your favourite artist, no matter who they are or what your vocal ability is.
Many singers start out with an idea of the type of voice they would like to have and copying established artists is one of the best ways to learn. In fact, it is how many singers learned their craft before singing lessons and online singing sites like this one were readily available.
Even today I listen to tracks from different artists I admire and I ‘have a lesson with them’ using this method.
Watch the video now to find out how you can start singing like your favourite artist in no time.
- Pick a track by one of your favourite artists that is not too difficult for you to sing [spacer height=”20px”]
- Play a few bars of the song, press pause, rewind and then sing that section with the artist. This isn’t as straight forward as it sounds – what you need to do is to sing EXACTLY like them. This requires a lot of listening. Are you holding your notes for the exact length of time that they hold theirs? Are you hitting your notes straight on or does the artist slide up to her notes?
To get this exactly right does take time. You will need to listen and rewind the song over small sections at a time until there is no difference between your notes and the artists. Yes you will still sound like you BUT this exercise will teach you phrasing.
No I’d love to hear from you. Did this method work for you? Were there any parts of it that you struggled with?

How long should you do this for?
Till you get it. You should choose a singer that is in your range also take online coaching to sing correctly so you won’t ruin your voice. If you are a baratone for instance but you want sing like Pavorotti. The sheer mechanics won’t allow you. There are limitations.
I always wanted to sound like John Denver when I was a kid When I went through puberty I THANK GOD was allowed to keep my high range but I got this low bottom end that reaches to bass D I tried to thin out my voice to sound like John Denver. My music teacher in school told me that I don’t at all sound like John Denver but you sound like Johnny Mathis. I never heard of him then… and indeed I do. I used his music to tailor my singing and now I sound so so much like him, even my speaking voice sounds like him. So this article is true and as I said in a previous comment you must possess the range of your favorite singer or in my case discover an even better singer and your voice fits. If you are a man and you have a baritone but you want to sing like Joe Feeney that classic Irish tenor sound. you just can’t but find a baritone singer you can like as much. like say Ed Ames or Lou Rawls or Bing Crosby or the opposite if you are a tenor and you want to sing like Bing Crosby won’t happen. PLEASE learn how to sing or you can ruin your voice which may take months to regain. or longer
first of all, I REALLY LOVE YOU, and you know how to teach plus convincing. best video ever.
