#indieID 5 Tips for BET Sunday Best Auditions – DC

26 Mar


As a performer your goal is NOT to sing or play perfectly… YOUR GOAL IS TO COMMUNICATE!


Taking singing lessons will definitely help you be ahead of the game. Having natural talent is great but if you rely on natural talents (alone) you make find your overall performance lacking.


Sing the best part of the song. Show exactly how amazing your voice is. Select the song that best shows that off.


It is essential that you know something about the show. Do your research and look at the songs people are singing. Do any of these songs fit into your range? Could you rock that song better than someone on the show? What are they wearing? Use the show as a resource to prepare you for the audition.


Though you may have to wait in line for a while, you need to ready to go at any second. Drink lots of water, do some humming and keep your voice warm, especially if you will be waiting in line outside. Do everything you can to be well-rested before the audition. This is your opportunity to shine!

5/SUNDAY BEST is literally looking for “SUNDAY BEST”

It may be obvious, but there is something particular that they are listening for. While they don’t tell you what that exact type of voice is, you get some insight into the fact that you may be phenomenal but still not the “right” voice for the show.

DISCLAIMER: The content in this post does not reflect the views of BET Networks/Sunday Best or any of its agents and representatives.  I offer advice based only my professional experience as a former Casting Judge of BET Sunday Best Season 2 (Washington, DC) and my ongoing work and experience in the Gospel Music Industry.
