Don't Rush Your Bow!
Beth Lawrence Viva La Voice "Inspiring The Artist In Everyone!"
You've worked hard to prepare for your gig. You've studied your lyrics; understand the emotions behind the words; and have developed your voice so that you can tell your story and not be distracted by vocal challenges.
You take the stage and share your music authentically, making a sincere connection with your audience. They feel your music and when your set is done, you get an ovation! Here's my advice - don't rush your bow! Enjoy your moment, you earned it!
Many times when I work with insecure or inexperienced singers they always have a problem with this. The moment they're done with their song they practically run offstage! Not taking a deserved bow robs your audience of the satisfaction of publicly thanking you. It also shows your audience that you feel unworthy of their praise.
Being confident before, during and after your performance will demonstrate that you have arrived as a powerful, masterful singer who isn't afraid to take the stage with no apologies.
