Lizzie asks…

R&p: Musically speaking, when was the last time you felt overwhelmed?

For example.. I always feel overwhelmed when im trying to discover a new genre, so many artist I have never heard of, and I always want to chose the right ones for me, because if I don’t like what I hear, I might be turned off by that genre… the last time I felt overwhelmed was when I was trying to get into Krautrock… All those funny band names, and I did not know which artist’s to start out with! So, after listening to some Krautrock essentials, I overcame my sense of being lost.

How about you? it does not have to be how I explained it above.. it could be any musical scenario where you were “overwhelmed”

New Niche Finder answers:

I feel overwhelmed when I’m trying to decide on a favorite song by a band like, say, Queen. So I’ve decided not to. I literally CANNOT pick favorite songs.

Also, I’ve felt the same in the situation you mentioned. That, or a new artist. I don’t know where to begin sometimes.

John asks…

How can I make Justin Bieber mine? help!?

I love him, he’s funny, sexy, young, my thing.

I know all about him, advice?

Justin Drew Bieber[7] ( /ˈbiːbər/ bee-bər, born March 1, 1994)[1] is a Canadian pop/R&B singer, songwriter and actor.[2][4] Bieber was discovered in 2008 by Scooter Braun,[8] who came across Bieber’s videos on YouTube and later became his manager. Braun arranged for him to meet with Usher in Atlanta, Georgia, and Bieber was soon signed to Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG), a joint venture between Braun and Usher,[9] and then to a recording contract with Island Records offered by L.A. Reid.[5][10] Bieber’s debut single, “One Time”, was released in 2009 and peaked in the top ten in Canada and charted in the top thirty in several international markets. His debut album, the seven-track EP My World, followed in November 2009, and was soon certified platinum in the United States (it was later reissued with two bonus tracks). He became the first artist to have seven songs from a debut album chart on the Billboard Hot 100.[11]

Bieber’s first full-length studio album, My World 2.0, was released in March 2010. It debuted at number one or within the top ten in several countries and was certified platinum in the United States. It was preceded by the worldwide top-ten single, “Baby”. The music video of “Baby” is currently ranked as the most viewed and most discussed YouTube video.[12] Bieber followed-up the release of his debut album with his first headlining tour, the My World Tour, the remix albums My Worlds Acoustic and Never Say Never – The Remixes, and the 3D biopic-concert film Justin Bieber: Never Say Never – which had an opening weekend gross that nearly matched the record for the biggest opening weekend for a concert-film. Bieber released his second studio album, Under the Mistletoe in November 2011, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Bieber has received numerous awards, including Artist of the Year at the 2010 American Music Awards — and has been nominated for numerous awards, including Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards.
I’m gay too, so no problem!

Daniel asks…

Questions For singers?!?

I have a couple of questions for you.

Who inspires you? Any old/new artist? Why?
Can you teach yourself how to sing? If yes how?
Do any of you have stage fright? Or did you in the begging? If yes how do you get rid of it?
How old were you when you discovered you want to be a singer?
Can everyone sing?
Is there any way you can self teach your voice naturally?
I heard that everyone can sing but not everyone can control their voice so that they can actually be good enough. Is this true?

I like singing to myself but that’s only cause i know that i cant sing, but that something that ive always wanted to try out.

Thanks! (:

Lady gaga, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Paul Stanley, The who,
OHHH & the pants on the ground guy!!!!!!(:

Can you teach yourself how to sing? If yes how?
Yess(: Just simple voice exercises & loads of practice!

Do any of you have stage fright? Did you in the begging(beginning)? If yes how do you get rid of it?
Not really, but I was a bit shy to sing in front of my parents. Not anymore though, I just kept singing in front of them & I finally lost my fear of it(: & I’m not stage fright, but I get realllllly excited & a bit nervous(:

How old were you when you discovered you want to be a singer?
6

Can everyone sing?
Of course!(:

Is there any way you can self teach your voice naturally?
Hmm.. Like scale pitches? If you can’t sing very low in the bass clef, then sing more of it! & do some exercises. Same for the treble clef!(high notes)

I heard that everyone can sing but not everyone can control their voice so that they can actually be good enough. Is this true?
Nahh anyone can learn to sing. Some just don’t practice enough!

Good luck & make all your dreams come true(:
