I sing, I sing a lot:p sometime when I was around 10 I started wanting to be on the worship team at church. As I have gotten older,I guess my singing confidence has lowered. This last fall I was involved in a choir it was amazing and I learned a lot and improved. I think the problem is that it’s hard to sing well when I am not confident. So I don’t sing to my full potential. Sometimes when I am messing around with my friends I will sing and sometimes they make fun of it or laugh so I stop singing. That makes me insecure which affects my singing ability. I feel like it’s a never ending cycle in which I get insecure so don’t sing as well people comment on it and I can’t sing as well! Part of it isn’t just that my friends laugh once in a while it’s also that no body ever really says that I have a good voice so it makes me think that I probably don’t? I don’t know. How can I sing well in front of others without the fear of messing up? Thanks(:

OK so like you I like singing a lot, and I’m also part of the youth worship team, so I can help you out on this if you know what I mean 😉 Worshiping on a worship team is so much more than just singing well, it’s having a genuine worship time with God and leading others to do so. My worship leader tells us that if you’re not genuine on stage people will tell. So I guess I’m trying to say that it should just be you and God on stage, make it all about him, sing for him and try to ignore other people. It might take you a while to get used to it but really try to remember that it’s for God and you’re singing for him! That generally helps me to calm my nerves and to sing with my fullest potential. Hope this helps 🙂

Thank you(: at the moment I’m not in the position where I can be on the worship team(due to schedule) but I can still sing for God in choir and otherwise(:

Just remember that whether you are singing in front of a small group of friends or in front of a huge audience, it’s not about you, it’s about the music. Harsh, I know. This is what my chorus director tells me whenever I get really nervous for a solo or a big audition. I have major stage freight, but this statement does help me a lot. Your job when you perform is to express the music to the best of your ability, in the way it’s written, or in the way that you feel the lyrics should be expressed. If you are truly focused on doing that, you will forget about how nervous you are or what other people think.
