Have you seen the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” yet?
It’s about the life and death of His Majesty Freddie Mercury and his band Queen.
I watched Bohemian Rhapsody yesterday. And quite frankly…I was disappointed.
You see, Rami Malek who played Freddie obviously studied his role inside out. The moves, the looks.. he had everything in place.
Still…I couldn’t fight the feeling it was all just made up.
I was spoiled. Because as a life-long Queen fan, I’ve seen dozens of live performances and interviews of Freddie…
Up to a point where I just couldn’t watch Malek’s acting performance objectively. Because the real Mr. Bulsara came constantly popping up in my mind.
That’s why my overall impression of the movie wasn’t that good. Yet I was wondering about one thing all the time…
Who the heck did the vocals in the movie?
Because they were spot-on and reaaaally good. And while they had a touch of Freddie’s timbre…I’m sure it wasn’t his voice.
Didn’t find the time to google it. But that would be interesting to know.
Speaking of Freddie…
Everyone agrees that he was one of the best rock voices in history. Outstanding power and laser-sharp tone that would easily cut through the noise of a raving crowd.
But it wasn’t always that way. In fact, his band mates revealed some struggles Freddie had in the past …
Like how Freddie had a pretty wild vibrato which he couldn’t control…
Thus sounded like a squeaky sheep.
On the other hand… he had an unreasonable desire and determination for making it B.I.G.
In his mind there was no doubt at all…he wouldn’t be a famous singer.
Eventually, it was the self-image which showed him the path…and even transformed his voice along the way.
What does this mean for you? Everything.
Because, you have to be wary about what you think of yourself as a singer.
And if how you see yourself doesn’t match with who you want to be….Change it.
Through daily visualization.
Simple as that…
Picture yourself as the singer you want to be.
And so be it.

P.S. I’ve talked about this book before. And let me get this straight. I don’t get any money for recommending it. The reason why I picked it up again…it can extremely help you and shortcut your way to the voice you want to have…and the singer you want to be.
