Blog Profiles: Singing Blogs
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. These singing blogs are full of posts that consistently hit a high note. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
Last year, the holidays were particularly difficult for me because I lost my grandmother to Alzheimer’s just before Christmas. She was an amazing, influential singer who was passionate about music and her faith. She’s my musical inspiration, as I grew up singing with her 24/7. If I asked my grandmother for some sugar, for example, she would respond with, “Sugar, Oh, honey, honey, You are my candy girl…”
Singing helps lift my spirits and I always feel less stressed after belting it out. I believe that’s why so many of us celebrate the holidays with singing and caroling – it brings us joy. We all need a little release these days. If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to become a better singer, this one’s for you.
1. That Sweet Roar
Kim is the founder of That Sweet Roar and she’s passionate about helping other singers improve their skills. As a young woman learning to sing, she was not always given clear, understandable instructions by her instructors. She aims to change the confusing cycle of not knowing what instructions to follow so that we can all have better confidence in our singing abilities.
It’s clear that Kim is more than just a great singer and coach; she’s also a mentor for self-expression and embodiment.
I recommend reading these posts: What You Need to Know about Eliminating Tension or Fear When You Sing; Why You Should Question Everything You Know About Singing; and Why Can’t I Belt Without Squeezing, Tension or Strain?

3. Fearless Singer
The Fearless Singer blog is another excellent resource. Founded by Australian singer, songwriter, and coach Mel Lathouras, this blog is filled with incredible musical inspiration. Mel’s vision is to help you feel more creative and connected in your endeavor to become a great singer. Like myself, Mel grew up with music blasting from her family’s stereo quite often. Her positive, vibrant, and uplifting vibe is what we all need in 2022.
Did I mention Mel is in an all-girls jazz band called Yas Queen? Yas please!
