Singer in the Spotlight: Ella Glasgow Binion
This gal right here has a story to tell!!
She’s a formally trained singer with an impressive resume, and then…
…her voice started acting up on her. She noticed it was harder to make sound come out in her middle range where it used to be effortless. She felt as though her middle range was constricted and she was tiring out very quickly – like, after just one song.
In October, I offered a seat at my monthly Master Class inside No Limits Academy to anyone who signed up for my priority notification list for the release of my new book, Never Lose Your Voice Again: The SECRET to Unlimited Vocal Health™ for Singers, Actors, and Speakers. Ella was one of the first to sign up for that because she was hopeful I could help her out.
She came to class, shared her struggle, and I asked her to sing a couple lines. I heard and saw the problem instantly and asked her to try it again making a small change in her technique. Her answer made everyone laugh: “That’s ALL we had to do??”
Yep. That’s it. That tweak in her technique – which will need to become part of her muscle memory through practice – was all she needed to get the strength and power back in her voice as well as giving her the endurance she once had. I checked in with her recently, and after telling me the technique adjustment we made was “LIFE” and that her performance that weekend went really well, here’s what else she had to say:
“Can I tell you what the last vocal instructor I worked with tried to tell me a few months ago? She basically looked at me as if I’d never had any technique in my life and said it would take MONTHS…maybe a year to get it back together. She never once said tuck in the session I had with her (nor did the other coach I worked with for a few more sessions). They never looked at my support. Clearly, imma just be callin you from now on…”
Then she added:
“Thank you. I honestly felt so low after that happened and I’ve felt so depressed about my voice in this last year and a half knowing it had to be something simple that I was missing. I was too close to see it myself. That part I knew. The best thing is, I’m actually considering singing again…”
You guys, this stuff WORKS. It’s not always a simple little fix (and even simple fixes take time to master and become part of your body’s muscle memory), but it CAN be fixed.
If you want to make your vocal fatigue struggles disappear like Ella, let’s talk.
