Heard about this chick in my voice class.



Full belief.


Not that we don't see enough of this inner game stuff here lately but this is at least enjoyable to watch.

I don't watch those kinds of shows nor do I care about opera but that was one of the most impactful singing I have ever listened to, and I'm sure 99% of people just watching her in the beginning thought she was gonna tank.

Definitely an inspirational video.

Uh...she doesn't sing well because of sheer inner belief, it's because she actually has singing skills.

This is just like how picking up girls isn't just about believing in yourself, it's also about ACTUALLY HAVING VALUE!
Haha good analogy.

Fantastic singing skills + full belief = Susan Boyle

Awful singing skills + full belief = William Hung



Some people are born with the ability to sing well, but anyone can learn to get girls!

 I loved her singing, my little sister and dad kept stereotyping her and thinking she was lip-syncing it :P Not nice but at least they're honest...

She probably worked on her voice for a while... I've been working on mine for a couple weeks, and I've actually gotten a lot better :)

I think anybody can sing well, but only some become great.

Evenstar - I didn't say she sang well because she had full belief. I said she had full belief.

Personally I think her singing could be better. I didn't post this because I thought she sang well.

Full belief is the best point that's been made about this, and while I do thank you for linking the video, what was said and the link to Willian Hung's video was important as well.

Both were completely unaffected, on national TV with people who are quote "celebrities" thinking they're failures, in her case beforehand and in his case afterwards, and held their beliefs 100% still... now that's powerful.

Yes...
she does a fantastic job. As an opera singer myself I can say that she sung very well, maybe not as well as the really great stars of the musical stage, but the fact that she is so unlikely, a real underdog, and shows absolute belief and commitment is what's most inspirational.

She also seems pretty much in her own reality and unstifled too, just letting her eccentric, bubbly nature shine through.
