1. Persevere and don’t let your determination wane. Determination and patience are very important if you want to become a famous singer. Why? Because the competition is intense and ever increasing. You may have to spend years refining your singing skills and accepting low-paying and meagre gigs until you shoot to stardom.

Get used to singing in front of people by singing on a stage or when in a car with your pals. You can also buy a Sonos Play 3 speaker, invite your friends over, and dance to the music. If you do this often enough, you’ll have no problem dancing in front of a large audience.

You shouldn’t even bother writing your own song if you can’t since the quality of your voice is more important in establishing yourself as a professional artiste a becoming famous than your song writing skills. Select 10 to 15 cover songs that you can sing well and practice with them.
Regarding your selection of songs, it should be a mixture of obscure and popular songs. Also, make your cover versions noticeable by changing the tempo, instrumentation, and tone extensively.

Frequent dance halls, clubs, and other places where people in the music industry meet and cities where music is most prevalent. This will increase the likelihood of a veteran contacting you in order to work with you or linking you up with an agent.
