5 Keys to a Powerful Voice That Won’t Burn Out

1. A Vocal Technique That Builds From the Foundation Up

If your vocal technique exercises don’t strengthen you, something’s not right with the technique itself. A good vocal technique builds your voice, from the foundation up or onto an existing technique. A good vocal technique will correct problems and issues like nasality, throatiness, and overall poor technique. It lowers the tongue, raises the palate, improves resonance, improves diaphragmatic breathing, helps you master breath control and vocal placement. It increases your overtone series which develops tone and power. As you practice technique you should feel improvements in all of these areas. If not then you don’t have the right technique or the right instruction.
Tip: When you practice vocal technique, don’t sing loudly. Save that for your performances. Vocal technique is best practiced at a moderate volume as this improves technique and precision.
2. Releasing Tensions Inside the Vocal Instrument

Imagine an athlete running a race without stretching their legs? They won’t perform at their best and most likely will end up with shin splits and injuries. The same applies to your voice. You are an athlete of the small muscles of the voice and breathing. Your voice is made up of the muscles of the tongue, jaw, larynx, soft palate, diaphragm among others. But these muscles are the most important to be stretched out before you sing and in daily practice to ensure vocal freedom and to avoid injury.
Tip: Stretch your tongue and jaw daily.
Tongue Stretch: Stick your tongue out and down towards the floor. Take 3 breaths and stretch further on the exhale. Then reach up to the roof of the mouth with your tongue and open your jaw as far as possible.
Jaw Stretch: Slowly open your jaw as far as possible (without tensing it.) Take a deep breath and open a little more. Slowly close your jaw. If you feel clicks or pops, go SUPER slow so it doesn’t click/pop. If you go slow enough – and I mean micro slow — you’ll be able to do it. If you still click/pop, visit Feldenkrais exercises for the jaw for more help (Google tutorials on YouTube.)
3. Daily Habits & Practices

The most important thing you do as a singer is to develop daily habits & practices and a daily vocal technique regimen. This is where you will experience radical results.
Practice technique for 30-60 min daily. Even 20 minutes is better than none. Work it in and make it non-negotiable. Your voice will love you for it ;).
Sing songs daily for 30-60 minutes daily. Even 20 minutes is better than none. Work on pitch, phrasing (rhythm), feeling and delivering more emotion. Incorporate vocal techniques you are working on into your singing practice as well.
4. Diet & Nutrition

Diet and nutrition plays a big role in the singing voice. Like an athlete, what you eat and how strong your nutrition is will affect your instrument.
Tips: Eat more fresh (not processed) foods. Fruits and veggies, fresh salads and fresh juices will improve the water content in your body and rejuvenate your voice. Stay away from processed foods (the middle aisles of the grocery store), and heavy meats and dairy are acidic and stress the body’s systems. They also contain chemicals, antibiotics and such which make the body work harder to process stealing your energy and vitality. Also add supplements (organic preferred) like B12 (with methylcobalamin vs cyanocobalamin which the latter is synthetic and not effective) for maximum energy and stress reduction. Take D3 to keep your immune system up and avoid colds and upper respiratory issues.) These are only a few of the many supplements that help singers, but are a good start!
5. Physical Strength & Stamina

A strong body is a strong voice. A healthy body is a healthy voice. Weight lifting (strength training), yoga, and aerobics are the 3 keys to build a strong body to support your voice. They are all components you need and compliment each other. Strength training is important to strengthen your muscles, yoga is important to release tensions that can result in injury, and aerobics are important for cardiovascular health and wind/breath. The ideal weekly regimen would be: 2 days of weight lifting, 2 days of yoga and 2 days of aerobics!

Tip: Be sure to stretch before and after weight training to avoid injury and tight muscles which can constrict your vocal instrument.

I hope this helps you commit to your vocal practice and blow people (and yourself) away with your voice!

How to Recover WhatsApp deleted messages.

WhatsApp Chat history recover

Have you ever accidentally deleted WhatsApp chats and regretted it immediately? Wondering if there is a way to get it back? Worry not, we’re here to help. We’ll share a way to restore deleted WhatsApp chats and one method to bring back WhatsApp chats overwritten by an iCloud or Google Drive backup.

If you have deleted chats accidentally, there’s a chance that the chat was present on your cloud backup. Let’s say your Google Drive or iCloud backup took place at midnight and in the morning you accidentally deleted a chat. The cloud backup still has the chat and you can restore it. Here’s how:

  • Uninstall WhatsApp from your Android smartphone or iPhone.
  • Reinstall WhatsApp and set it up with your phone number.
  • Once the app is set up, you will get a prompt asking you to restore messages from a cloud backup. This backup would be from Google Drive on Android, and iCloud on iOS. Tap Restore.
  • This will bring back the messages that you had accidentally deleted. Note that if you got a message after your most recent cloud backup and deleted it, there’s no way to recover it.

  • .
    Restoring deleted WhatsApp chats via Android’s local backup
    Another way to try restoring deleted WhatsApp chats is to recover them from local backups on your Android phone. This method does not work on iOS. If your Google Drive backup has overwritten the deleted messages, then follow these steps.

  • Go to your phone’s File Manager (download Google’s Files app if you can’t find this app). Now go to the WhatsApp folder > Database. The Database folder contains all the WhatsApp backup files that are stored locally on your phone.
  • Select the file msgstore.db.crypt12 and rename it to msgstore_BACKUP.db.crypt12. This is your most recent backup file and you need to rename it so as to prevent it from being overwritten. In case things go wrong, you can always rename this file to its original name and restore.
  • Now you will see a bunch of files in this folder in the format msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt12. These are your older WhatsApp backups, you can pick the most recent one and rename it to msgstore.db.crypt12.
  • Here’s the tricky part: you need to open Google Drive on your smartphone, tap the hamburger icon (the three vertical lines) > Backups. Now delete the WhatsApp backup there. This will force your phone to restore from the local backup instead.
  • Now, uninstall WhatsApp and then reinstall it. Set it up and once done, you will get a prompt to restore chats from a local backup, considering you don’t have a chat backup on the cloud.
  • Tap on Restore and that’s it. You’ll get your deleted chats back.

  • So, these are the two methods which you can use in a situation where you have accidentally deleted your WhatsApp chats or in a situation where you have freshly installed WhatsApp and want your old chats back.
    Before trying out the steps, do keep in mind that you can only restore chats if the backup option had been turned on in the first place on WhatsApp. This means that if you had never done a backup of your chats, then you won’t be able to recover any messages or chats that you accidentally delete.
    To turn on chat backup, open WhatsApp, go to Settings > go to Chats > tap on Chat backup. Over here, you can set up the frequency of your chat backup between never, daily, weekly or monthly, or you can even do a manual backup as well. Additionally, you’ll have to select the Google account where you’d want the backup to be stored if you use an Android smartphone.
    And if you’re an iPhone user, go to Settings within WhatsApp > Chats > Chat Backup, where you can select the Auto Backup frequency or use Back Up Now to manually initiate a backup to iCloud.
