12-12-12- Hurricane Sandy Concert Review

Did you see the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert last night? We here at Dot's Voice Studios support when artists unite and make music for a good cause.

Overall, I thought it was an entertaining evening full of good-spirited musical legends. It's amazing to consider how artists like Paul McCartney, at age 70 still sounded phenomenal, sailing through 3 octaves like it was nothing, from fast-paced hard-rock, to the peaceful ballad "Blackbird." And that is proof that the voice gets better with age if you look after it.

  I would like to highlight a legendary artist with amazing presence, physique and vocal ability... the first few moments of his solo performance gave me chills...but then I started to wonder about his voice. Was he compensating because he couldn't hit the notes?

  • People tell you it sounds good when you sing, but you’re not sure if they’re just trying to make you feel better or if they're delusional. 
  • Deep, deep down, you think you’re a genius, but there's another very skeptical part of you that just doesn’t know for sure if that's really accurate. And if it is—you’re aware that the notes you think in your head when you sing don’t always come out the way you want them to.
  • You might still be holding onto a few “vocal wounds” from childhood, when your parent, sibling or friend told you, “You're tone deaf!” or to please, “Be quiet!
