Have you ever wanted to sing on stage? It’s possible! Very soon, I’ll be performing a song on stage with a LIVE BAND! And I’m so excited!!
It’s been a fantastic journey of self-exploration and mental, spiritual, and vocal growth while participating in an 8-week singing transformation program with Breakthrough Performance Workshop! And this is something you could do too, because Breakthrough offers 8-week programs on an on-going basis!
As many of my family and friends know, I’ve been singing most of my life, both during my youth and years in church–and I really love karaoke! And in recent years I’ve sang alongside my songwriter, guitarist/bassist husband at restaurants and home parties. But, I’ve never sang on stage with a live band and backup singers!
This transformational program is not just geared for people who have sang for years though, the classes are designed to open you up, and help you find your own authentic voice–even if you aren’t sure you can sing–Mick and Tess are there to coach you! You can do this!
This is abSOULutely a bucket list thing to do! And when concert time rolls around, it’ll be an outrageous show!! Keep reading for my upcoming concert date and how YOU can get tickets!
There are many reasons I never thought I’d sing with a band on stage:
- I didn’t think I wanted to be in the limelight (While it seems empowering, it’s quite a vulnerable position to be in)
- I had experienced some different forms of rejection in the past (for singing)
- By nature, I’m introverted – more of a writer than a performer
- I didn’t feel I was physically or vocally fit enough to perform for an entire evening, so why even bother rehearsing with a band for gigs when I didn’t think I could do it
When I signed up to take part in the Breakthrough Performance Workshop, I wasn’t sure I could sing on stage (without my husband), but I really wanted to challenge myself! And there were subconscious reasons to sign up that I didn’t even realize, until I began the 8-week program!
The Breakthrough Performance Workshop website states that the program is,
A ONCE IN A LIFETIME PEAK EXPERIENCE A FUN, EXCITING, EXTRAORDINARY WAY TO DO PERSONAL GROWTH RELEASE FEARS AND STEP INTO CONFIDENCE UNLEASH, RECHARGE AND EXPAND! A MUSICAL JOURNEY TO BREAKTHROUGH LIMITATIONS AND REALIZE YOUR POTENTIAL.
Certainly, the Breakthrough Performance Workshop has been a huge amount of FUN, and profoundly empowering! I love Mick and Tess’s therapeutic style! I have found such gracious, loving, and supportive beings–and enjoying every moment! And we have such an amazing group of program participants this time; they’re all so open and willing to stretch, feel, change, and grow!
In January 2016, I made a commitment to myself to live this entire year for myself, in joy, and–in a variety of ways–fully express who I am, mind, body, and spirit. This is definitely a highlight! Myself, and the eight others who began this program have been, and are continuing to, breakthrough lifelong fears that limited us.
Won’t you come out and support us? We would love to pack the house FULL on April 16th, 2016!! You can get your tickets here online (buying online allows us to know how many of you will be showing up)! We’ll be singing songs as a group, and each of us will perform a solo–I promise our show is going to kick butt!!
I have learned so much through this program! I’m telling you that singing improves our attitude and health in countless ways–by opening to the energy that sustains all of life, and moving your breath and authentic voice through the body.
Singing has helped me relax, find relief from work stress, and many consider it to be a natural remedy from many ills–and I agree! One night at group, a participant had a toothache, by the time she sang her song though, that tooth had quit hurting completely!
I will continue to sing boldly and powerfully every day for the rest of my life! Come play with us! And–if at all possible–come to our huge show April 16th, 2016 at First Unity church in St. Petersburg, Florida and watch each and every star I am so very proud to know!
