Do you want to become a professional singer? Let's look at the gospel industry to get an idea of what steps you may need to take to get into this career. Gospel is a very popular field of expertise for a singer. If you want to become a professional gospel singer, attend events such as Dove Awards, Bobby Jones Gospel, and others to network with professionals in the gospel industry. Also, you may want to join organizations and associations such as Gospel Music Association (GMA), National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, and others to get access to the resources you will need to advance in your career. Once you decide on your area of expertise, you should get to know as much about the industry as possible. As a professional singer, you will want to have the following people on your team:
1) Public relations (PR) – They help get your name to the public. They work with imaging to relate a certain picture of you to the public. They look at you throughout, such as your hairstyle, dress, language, weight, and they may suggest changes as needed.
2) Booking manager – Someone who will answer telephones calls and schedule your appointments.
3) Manager – Almost the same as a public relations person.
4) Agent – They negotiate your contracts.
The professional world of music is greatly competitive and demands so much from the artist. For this reason, the artist must take care of his or her voice. Too much stress on the vocal cord could cause it to swell and become damaged. If this occurs, please contact a doctor or speech pathologist. These medical experts will recommend treatment to help the vocal chords to return back to its normal shape. So, put those voice lessons to work and start today singing for money.
