Hey Everybody! How's it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! I've got more behind the scenes goodness for you all today! Here's the story of recording the voiceover to the promo for my debut single, "Ms. Victoria (There She Goes)". As I was preparing to release the single, one of the most vital part, in my opinion at least is a promo, so using my broadcasting background I set out to record the voiceover and promo to my debut single, "Ms. Victoria (There She Goes)". It turned out to be a little more difficult than I had originally anticipated, more difficult than writing, performing, and producing the actual instrumental of the single. The length of time it took to record the promo wasn't the issue, the issue lied in the fact that I am a total perfectionist and kept flubbing and mispronouncing the words to the promo that I HAD WRITTEN! In addition to that I was recording for pretty much the whole time at one speed, high energy, uptempo, excited, and happy for the entire length of my first recording session, which lasted about 3 and a half hours, and because of that, I started to lose my voice! Towards the end of the first session I could feel and hear my voice start to go, and it wasn't as strong as it was at the beginning when I started recording. My voice was becoming VERY HOARSE, which when you do any vocal and voiceover work for a living is NEVER a good sign! So taking precaution, I decided to call it for the night, end my recording session, sleep on it, rest my vocal chords, and get right back at it the next morning, which I did! So, after waking up the next morning, the first thing I did was grab a bottle of water and get right back to recording this promo! To my surprise, recording the promo after sleeping on it for a night was SUPER EASY! It came together with no issues, no problems, and I was ecstatic! On a side, the recording session this time only lasted about 20 to 30 minutes, and sounded so much better than any of the takes from the previous recording session the night before! In all, I'm happy that the single, "Ms. Victoria (There She Goes)" has been released and is AVAILABLE WHEREVER DIGITAL MUSIC IS SOLD! I'm happy that sleeping on the recording session for a night happened and was a good idea, and most importantly, I'm happy that the recording session the following morning went SUPER, SUPER WELL AND EVERYTHING CAME TOGETHER SO EASILY! Thanks everybody! Hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes story! Talk to you all again soon.
