Sing something from Wicked. It’s relatively easy to learn, it’s in a good range, and you can be theatrical.
or if you are looking to Broadway type music try looking up Ingird Michaelson, her songs are quirky and in a good mid range.
The massive stage fright thing is incredibly normal. The more you perform the less and less being on stage will scare you.
My advice is to practice practice practice. Practice so much you are dreaming about practicing. lol
and then right before you perform…relax.
I usually get very Zen.
I sit and tell myself. “Lauren…you are superior.” Telling yourself what you are makes your subconscious do what you practice so you can be flawless.
All of this stuff helps me.

That’s a lot of information! Thank you! (:
I’m actually considering doing a musical number/broadway now!
Yeah, I’ve actually been gradually getting over it, ever so slightly.
Haha. (: I’ve actually been trying to get a lot of practice in, but not too much so I don’t kill my voice.
I think deep breathing, and trying not to think too much about it too terribly much helps me cool my nerves a bit.
Hmmm…I think I’ll try that. (:
But I’ll still be needing some song choices, because, being me, I’m a very indecisive person. heh.posted over 3 years ago
Sing something classic , Amy Winehouse is good , DUFFY is classic , Look at Youtube videos of Brit/Americas got talent and look at what songs the judges enjoy , in British version they have banned some songs LOL
Good luck -Dont be rude to the judges at all , otherwise they always go MAD (like Hulk)posted over 3 years ago
I don’t think I could sing an Amy Winehouse song too well. O.x
And I’ve been searching for a song they haven’t heard as much, for the unique factor.
Thank you, haha and no worries, I’m not a rude person. (:posted over 3 years ago
I wouldn’t classify amy winehouse as classic…..
get on itunes and browse songs without buying them. that;s out I figure out what I’m looking for usually.posted over 3 years ago
Maybe try Corrine Bailey Rae, Lily Allen, or maybe even P!NK’s song “Misery.” It’s very soulful and sad.
It might also be interesting to take a song that’s poppy and cover it with a more soulful sound, or, in other words, make it your own.posted over 3 years ago
@laurenkay:: heh. i was hoping i wasn’t the only one.
hmm…that sounds like a pretty good idea.
i’ve actually been stuck on oldies music for a while now, hoping that maybe my perfect song would come one.
@crayola4kids:: oh! lily allen sounds good.
yeah, i’ve been thinking of ways i could maybe make a song more…my own.

i was thinking maybe a classic oldies song, but at the moment all i can think of is cindy lauper.posted over 3 years ago
think something unusual that they will not have heard a million times over , i think they appreciate that.
But you will have to consider wht song you can handle , Beatles , Marvin Gaye , Jackson 5 , Alicia Keyes , ? Maybeposted over 3 years ago
@ SONIAP :: I agree. I think they’d probably get pretty annoyed, if I sang a song they’ve heard over a hundred times in under twelve hours.
I’m actually thinking Alicia Keys might be a bit too much on the popular side.
I was considering doing a Beatles song, possibly Jackson 5.
Thanks for the suggestions. (:posted over 3 years ago
