Singing With Energy Vs Emotions

  • Energy
  • Emotions
  • Confidence

Genres Are you an empathetic singer? An empath is someone who can intuitively relate to another person. Empathy is an important skill in acting and singing.

Your ability to act the character or empathize with your character is what gives your character life. This is also true for stage presence with singing.

In music, emotions are not to be confused with energy. Try to listen to songs closely to hear inflections and tones.

This will help you determine the right approach when singing different genres or songs.


Genres When determining the energy of a song. Always look at the slope. Ask yourself some questions.

Does the song start with a lot of push? Does the song start Soft? Does the verse start with vibrato or is vibrato slowly introduced?

Start listening closely to songs so you can decide how to approach a line.

For example, if a song starts relatively soft, singing it strong would technically be an alteration to the original. This is how we can have a unique cover of a song that still keeps some of the song’s great qualities.

That being said, singing the song stronger will mean using more air. So taking bigger breaths before you try that will help. These are just some tips when working with songs that have altering levels of energy.


Genres The emotions in the song will be what you feel as you read each line. If you are singing a really sad song, you want to mentally bring yourself somewhere sad. So that way you can sing from a place of understanding and feeling.

In Beyonce’s song Me, Myself, And I she says “I can’t believe I believed everything we had would last, so young and naive of me to think she was from your past”.

She sings that verse from a place of betrayal and pain. This song talks about dreaming of falling in love with someone who hasn’t been faithful.

So when you sing a song like this you want to think of something equally sad and use your voice to sing as though this has actually happened to you.

Most sad songs are like a declaration to somebody. Try this exercise, think of someone as the focal point for a song, then pretend like you are singing them a voicemail.

Try to use this perspective to get into character and sing from a place of feeling. If you are not good at improvising, this is a good way to develop skills that allow you to be more vulnerable when singing.


First, you need to understand energy to be able to use emotions properly. A song with good energy but bad emotions will always be missing that vulnerability.

A song with good emotions but bad energy control, can use too much of one thing at different times. You need confidence to allow yourself to be empathetic.

If you don’t believe in what you’re singing you will have a hard time making anyone else believe. Treat every song you sing like a soft musical.

Meaning, you are acting out each line and you’re able to be confident in where you wish to take it. This will build your believability and authenticity as a singer.
