Ok, so you have a passion to sing, but you need that special "something" to give you an edge to be the next Celine Dion or Charice Pempengo. Using the Basic Fundamentals of Singing is what will give you that edge.  It will give you a more polished performance and take you from being a karoake singer to a Vocal Performer! Let's get started!

Step 2: Posture: The Correct Way to Stand While Singing

We'll start with the first thing people see when you are singing: your posture.  Your Mama always told you to stand up straight and Mama was right! We all know what proper looks like but let me show you how to achieve it.  First, stand up as tall as you can, feet flat on the floor, reaching your arms as high above your head as you can. Next, gently and slowly let your arms fall back to your sides leaving your back and chest where they are.  THIS is proper posture.

Step 3: The Diaphragm: The Power Behind Your Breathing

You cannot breathe properly when you sing unless you use correct posture because your air has to move through all the channels of your torso, stomach, chest, back and neck, before it carries your words out of your mouth. Breathing and Posture work closely together. The correct way to breathe is from your Diaphragm, a muscle in your stomach area that powers your breathing as you sing. Singers like Celine Dion and Michael Bolton cannot sing the big, powerful notes they do without singing from the Diaphragm.

I somehow think you are not addressing those of us who honestly cannot hear when our voices are not singing the proper note or not. Someone was once convinced he could cure me and help me hit the right note, but it did not work. I just cannot.
