In this video, you’re going to learn about drinks to help your singing voice sound like a celebrity and get you praises when you walk off stage.
Welcome to my channel, Learn To Sing Better, my name is Randy Rope.
In a moment, I’m going to show you a few drinks that will improve your singing voice so that you sound your best on stage.
And if you stay with me all the way, I’m also going to reveal drinks that destroy your singing voice and make you sound terrible on stage.
There is so much that goes into having a great singing voice and most singers focus on those areas.
The good tone uses clear and consistent vowel sounds.
Clear enunciation so that your words are not mumbled or slurred.
Vocal support produces a broad tone, rather than one which sounds thin and feeble.
Suitable volume so your audience can hear you.
All of these things help you to have a good voice so that your audience feels your words.
But what about drinks that are good for your voice?
Not enough attention goes into this topic.
If you drink the correct beverages, your voice can sound amazing.
However, if you consume the wrong drinks, you may have a miserable time on stage
Let’s talk about some of the good drinks you should consume to have an amazing voice.
1. Asian Pear & Lotus Root drink for voice restoration
I bet you haven’t heard about this great voice drink.
The Asian pear, lotus root, and coconut milk will coat your throat.
Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and opens up your sinuses.
The lemon reduces phlegm in your throat to help you sing better.
This recipe calls for a blend of:
- Asian Pear (1)
- Lotus Root (1/2)
- Coconut milk or Almond Milk (Don’t use real dairy- it will cause unwanted phlegm)
- Ginger Slices (2)
- Lemon Juice (1 tsp)
2. Aloe Vera Juice/Gel for hydrating and healing.
Aloe is a great plant for taking baths, your skin, and your gut.
Another great use for Aloe Vera juice is that it helps prepare you to sing and heals your vocal cords afterward.
It’s a bit thick so you may want to add a little water to thin out the juice/gel.
Sip a small glass of aloe at the end of your performance to soothe and heal any irritation or inflammation in your throat.
3. Room temperature Water is your best friend.
This is without a doubt the best thing you can do for your voice so that you have a great day on stage.
When you drink lots of water, you keep your vocal cords hydrated.
Water also keeps the thin secretions flowing in your voice, which helps to keep your vocal cords lubricated.
Start drinking water 24-hours before your performance.
4. Warm water with honey and lemon is an easy way to naturally hydrate and soothe your voice.
This mixture has a lot of advantages for your voice, especially the warm water.
The honey has a soothing effect on your throat.
The reason for this is that the thick honey helps lubricate and coat your throat.
It also helps relieve swollen throat issues and scratchy voice.
The anti-bacterial qualities help to fight germs in your throat and help your vocal cords heal after your performance.
The warm water keeps your vocal cords tightened.
This is especially important if you want to hit high notes and increase your vocal range.
The warm water also clears your throat and reduces the mucus that accumulates from excessive coughing.
It helps wash out toxins that cause infections in your throat.
This incredible and yet simple combination can do wonders for your voice.
There are lots of ways to make sure that you can treat your voice with respect and love.
But the most important is to keep your vocal cords hydrated and lubricated.
The only way you can do this is to watch what you drink and pick drinks that are good for your voice.
Now, let’s talk about a few drinks that will destroy your voice and may even embarrass you on stage.
1. A can of Soda is NOT your best friend.
Yes, soda tastes great and it gives you that extra kick.
Before a performance, you should avoid such sugary, acid drinks.
It’s carbonated, so the bubbly effect puts air in your stomach and can cause you to burp on stage.
Probably not something you’d want to happen on stage.
Soda is packed full of processed sugar that causes phlegm in your throat.
The combination of carbonation and processed sugar is a collision course for your voice.
Cutting it from your vocal performance could lead you to cut it out of your life.
Think of all the positive health benefits.
2. Milk has so many great benefits, just not for singers.
It’s packed with calcium to give you strong bones, however, milk is the #1 cause for phlegm build-up in singers.
Phlegm is every singer’s worst nightmare, especially on stage.
It sticks to the back of your throat and nasal cavity.
Then you must clear your throat as you are singing.
Sometimes phlegm can cause your voice to sound like it’s cracking.
Cracking is when air breaks through the phlegm at the back of your throat.
If you have a tendency to sound nasal-like, stay away from all milky drinks because it will make your problem worst.
Milk and singing just don’t mix well together.
3. Steer clear of Beer and wine when you dine if you want to sound great on stage.
It’s common to be given a bar tab when you perform, but steer clear of the beer and wine.
Wine is generally packed with preservatives that dry out your throat and make singing a strain.
Beer (or anything carbonated) causes bloating and gas and you don’t want either when you’re up on stage singing into a mic.
You want your stomach muscles relaxed so you can use your diaphragm to breathe.
When you’re bloated, you feel tight around the mid-section and your breathing will suffer.
And as for gas? Well, it speaks for itself.
If you’re singing into a microphone, the audience can hear every little noise you make.
It’s uncomfortable trying to stop a burp during a romantic ballad.
