Confidence the Feeling...Can You Sing Confidently Without Feeling Confident?
Feeling confident is not always a reflection of your actual ability or readiness. You can look at several American Idol-type auditions to see the lack of awareness singers have and the mis-matched confidence. Some very confident singers haven't learned yet how to sing in tune, and the audition is a painful experience of them finding out that that is the case. Others have more than enough skill, but don't trust their voice enough to sing confidently when audition time comes.
So what do you do, when the feeling of confidence vanishes? Or what do you do, if you have don't the feeling of confidence in your singing at all?
