One of the many ways that aspiring singers have been discovered and driven to national and international fame is through the internet. The World Wide Web has become a powerful tool for people to realize their dreams.
The internet, paired with other social media platforms and applications like Facebook, YouTube, Vine, etc., has made it possible for aspiring singers to be recognized; some by accident, some by actually dedicating time and effort to increase visibility in the Web through SEO.
In fact, some of the many singers in the industry started out as music enthusiasts who happen to love recording themselves in a video and then posting it on YouTube. When people search for great covers of particular songs, their videos pop instead of the original artists, and when people love a version, they start sharing it until it goes viral and demands for international attention.
This is the reason why a lot of aspiring singers now have decided to input online visibility as a great contributor to stardom, and I for one have been harnessing the power of the internet to help me reach out to a lot more audience.
Sometimes, you won’t even need to be part of national TV. Nowadays, being a YouTube star or online star alone is already enough stardom for people to follow you and your music. This is true for a lot of people who especially sing and write songs not just for the fame but more importantly, to be heard and get messages across.
I really hope that we all get that spot of limelight soon, whether we reach national and international fame or become online sensations, as long as our voices start getting heard, then we know we are on the right track.
