Day 2 The Singers Instrument Good: A recap of Music Traces by MacNuel Davids

Day 2 The Singers Instrument Good

Afternoon Everyone! I trust you’re making exploits in all your daily Endeavors. Welcome to another Edition of Music Traces! Today discussion is centered around “THE SINGERS INSTRUMENT” Behind the accolades an artist gets for his performance, there are a lot of instruments blended together to produce a beautiful sound irrespective of the type of music.

All musical instruments are vital to a singer or a vocalist because the singer recognizes that they compliment his craft of singing. but that which the Singer/Vocalist possesses that is Very paramount is “THE VOICE”. The singers instrument is not the Mic he/she can control, the keyboard they know how to play with, the strings of the guitar that sounds heavenly, No! The Singers Instrument is the Voice!

The Voice is the singers Instrument. The Voice is The Music. The Voice is a singers sound, the music the singer creates is surrounded by the VOICE. Every other instrument only adds to the Rhythm and harmony which the Voice Sings out. It is therefore Expedient and wise for one whose interest lies in the musical boundaries or has vocal capabilities to nurture this VOICE, make it ready for use and present an excellent delivery when called upon. To sing like a professional, You have to be deliberate about it. You have to Earn a good VOICE to be a professional and Earning this good VOICE comes as a result of constant Handwork and Rehearsals. You cannot be a professional Artist without having excellence radiating in your voice. You cannot possess what you don’t process. To belong to the Top requires that You work your way through. Any Professional you see out there passed through processes – Trainings. If you stop at “assuming” training, you’ll never end up at having a good VOICE.

You ought to work on your self in a way creating your sound and creating your niche. Each note you practice out today, translates into a rhythm tomorrow. You can sound like someone else and be phenomenal. But you can’t sound like someone else and build your brand. This doesn’t mean there’s no place of imitation. Imitation Would always be the springboard to originality. You’ve also got to work! Just like an instrumentalist always looks out for maintenance measures to take to keep their instruments good & always ready for use, so also should A Singer should Always look out for tips on how to be vocally ready Before & after every performance. There are numerous dimensions and ways to maintain ones VOICE and these Procedures are not applicable to everyone. From the basics, you’ll you have to find out which of them works well for you and how you can constantly go through them without missing a period. Moreover, there are some universal VOICE developing techniques that works for everyone like; Drinking lots of water, exercising & Lip rolling. These techniques may look complex & difficult to constantly carry out, but gets simple when you finally decide to start. No one gets better by not trying. Results is the reward for hard work. You want a good VOICE, WORK! Don’t rely on your singing capabilities, they may fail you, YES THEY CAN!! Always look out for ways to develop your vocal dexterities to enable you sound phenomenal. To develop and groom a good voice, I’ll recommend; you constantly search for trending materials on VOICE training, practice them, monitor your voice and set up listening sessions. SEARCH FOR TRENDING MATERIALS ON VOICE TRAINING: the internet is your resource, Always Use it. Get relevant Articles and videos from YouTube. They help so well and would give you directions! PRACTICE ALONGSIDE MATERIALS: It’s not enough to get these materials. Watch the videos and do as they instruct. Also watch rehearsal clips of A-C List Artists & understand how you can apply what you learn. Read the Articles & follow the directives, it will help too. MONITOR YOUR VOICE; Always record your rehearsal sessions When practicing & pay grasp attention to your VOICE, track the growth. With these you can tell if you’re getting better or not. If you’re not, it means You probably need new techniques.

#MusicTraces SET UP LISTENING SESSIONS sometimes you can’t tell how better you’re getting. Superb if you have a Voice Trainer but if you don’t, friends & family can help out. After each session ensure to get feed backs from them & compare the feed backs to see how better you’re getting. Conclusively, Consistency is Key to Having Great Vocals. The Voice of a Singer is the Singers Instrument and for this voice to become a renown tools, it has to be developed with what is trendy, worked on consistently with all diligence. I believe you have a better understanding of the singers major instrument being the voice and constantly working on the development of the voice in a way creating your own niche.

Recap Tweets Of MacNuel Davids Music Traces @macnueldavids

Recap Tweets Of MacNuel Davids Music Traces @macnueldavids The Music, Our Mindset; Today, We’ll get to see how your mindset influences or affects your sound and kind of music. Feel free to always tweet at me, retweet, share, comment, like, ask questions and contribute. I’m your resource, Use me. We are Set?! Lets Ride! Aside music being a blend of Notes and Chords using diverse instruments including vocal delivery. Music is an art, that conveys and expresses our personality, thoughts, ideas and Mindset in a rhythmic way. From the first note played on a song, to the last stroking of the snare, your idea & mindset finds expression on the song. This mindset that transcends into the song is sometimes also brought about by the producer’s idea about genres which is always limited. In some songs, you get to have multiple mindsets trying to dominate from the artistes zone or the producers’. Except when you have an artist do a song not written or composed by him/her, you get to have a feel of the mindset behind the song from the lyrical content. As an artist, what you do, what you listen to, where you go, and generally your ideology about life replicates in the songs you sing regardless of the genre of the song you’re doing. The style of A genre of music can never be changed. What is always usually changed is the mindset & approach of the artist on the song. That is what brought about AfroPop. Where you have a feel of the African rhythm blending with the ancient Pop music making it contemporary. You can’t have Jim Reeves do a rendition of Amazing Grace like Michael W. Smith. This is because the mindset behind their style of music which has metamorphosed into what we call contemporary today. Just same way you can’t have 50cent do RNB like R.Kelly. The point is this; The music itself does not change. What changes is our mindset to do the same music in a better and unique way. That is what makes it contemporary. if the music does not change but the mindset, it’s the duty of the artist & the producer to constantly develop what they feed on & In the process this bring about the creativity of the artist, which the producer then translates into the “creating” the song. Now How can the right mindset even be developed? -Constant Periodic Rehearsals -Exploration -Believing in your vocal capabilities -Feeding on Ethical Things -Being true to your sound -Being dedicated to creating your niche As we draw to a conclusion, NOBODY CAN SOUND LIKE YOU, YOU CANT SOUND LIKE ANYONE! Just like how Rome wasn’t build in a day, You can’t sound like Celine Dion or Adele in a day. This is only achievable through constant rehearsals. Nobody is a bad singer from birth. You only become a bad singer when you don’t rehearse and you don’t prioritize singing as a part of your “craft”! This is also a mindset that needs to be realigned. We have come to the end of today’s conversation. I trust you are enlightened & would put to work what we discussed. Don’t forget Rome wasn’t built in a day & if they had tried to, it would have crashed. The more you Change & Develop your mindset, The Better you get! #MusicTraces

This Crusade has been CFaN’s largest Crusade to date.



It was recorded that during the Lagos Millennium crusade in the year 2000, in the course of five nights over six (6) million people were in attendance, and 3.4 million decisions were also made for Christ.

CfaN in general anticipates that many decisions will also be made for Christ in response to the farewell Crusade of the great evangelist farewell message in this part of the world.

He also made known that, CfaN will be releasing information about the crusade for those who will be will to be part of this glorious gathering. It recorded that the current population of Lagos State is about 20 million people currently, which they have chosen to be the converging point in Nigeria, so the potential magnitude of this coming is breathtaking to really consider.

Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke has said “Whether I am eating or drinking, awake or asleep, the vision is ever present. Since then, he and the CfaN team have organized events in Africa that have grown from humble handfuls of attendees to the winning of over 76million registered decisions for Christ in Africa since 1987.

Today, with much gratitude for what God has achieved through him, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke shares that;

The lord spoke to him that he should go back for one more crusade in Africa. He also said he didn’t only want to see a gigantic harvest of souls in the coming crusade, but to pass my burning torch to this generation.

He made known that he came to Nigeria recently to meet with Spiritual Leadership there, and they gave their unanimous support.

He made known that he strongly believe that God will be doing something that we have never seen before in this coming Crusade.
