Should I start singing? Review my singing.

I have never sang before, or have taken it seriously and do not know how to sing properly. I don't really know anything about singing because it's something I never do, but my sister kept on playing 'Dangerous Woman' and the whole song got stuck in my head, so I sang to it. It's only 10 seconds of audio, but that's what memory was left on my phone. Do you think I have some talent? Is it something I should take up? I don't really have any hobbies so that's why I ask, kind of want to start doing things but I am only assessing where my strengths and weaknesses currently are at.  Thanks for your response!

There's far too little in that recording to determine if singing comes mroe naturally to you or not. However, it's not about talent, rather it's a decision. Unless they have some sort of physical impairment preventing them from doing so, anyone can learn to sing well.

Is it something you want to do? If you want to learn to sing, then do it. There's an incredible program linked on this site called The Four Pillars of Singing. There are also a lot of vocal coaches here, including myself. 

As for choosing a hobby in general: Is there something you really enjoy? Is there something you're naturally attracted to? Is there something you have been told you have a god-given natural talent for? As I said before, it's not really about talent, but rather about making a decision. However, if you have a natural gift for something you know you enjoy, then pursuing that thing can be a real pleasure too.

Do you want to learn how to sing? It's not something that most people can just do. They practice. Talent is developed.

 

I haven't heard the song, but I assume that's by Ariana Grande. She has one of the most impressive voices in mainstream music today. I've been following her for like 9 years. She developed that voice. She has been singing since she was a kid. She used to actually perform for her parents every few days. She's also had lessons for years. See that? Even she recognized the importance of training.

 

You start out with the desire and then practice to get better.

Hate to sounds trite and cliche', but if you want to become a singer, odds are... you can. Most people can learn to sing if they train and a very large % of that group can actually learn to sing great. MOST people can learn to sing great with enough time and practice and some study.

So like anything in life, you have to be willing to do the work and make the sacrifice.

Hum; let see; what dose talent actually mean

The Cambridge English dictionary states it

(someone who has) a natural ability to be good at something, especially without being taught:
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/talent

 

So I guess that would mean no one on hear has any talent what so ever

That definition sucks in my opinion. It makes no sense. If someone trains to become really good at something; singing, gymnastics, dancing, investing, painting, etc... they have not developed talent? This definition seems to suggest that you can't develop or enhance inherent talent. If that is their meaning, it's absurd. There is inherent talent and there is developed / trained talent.

Neither of which you won't be able to capitalize on if you don't train regardless.

The word to me is not a real word it is just a made up word, made up by our masters so they can lie to use like they lie to us about everything ells in life!

The teacher I have now (Matthew) is a professional baritone opera singer and has all London bachelor degrees and everything. Any way I was talking to his mom and she mentioned someones name who was a talented X-factor finalist (cant remember his name have no interest in silly little pantomime shows like that) but if your a fan of that kind of thing then this guy is now some kind of celebrity. Any way this talented armature who had no previous experience or training (so the show claimed) had trained with Matthew and sang in the same opera house as Mathew for 4 years prior to this. I mean you could just not make up a bigger pile of :QuestionFox:then that really could you. Never-mind.

Well on the bright side of things. this false pretence of 99.9% of people don't have talent when infact 99.9% of people are capable of learning to sing well. Keeps out competition;)

 

But there again this is most probably why the OP (like so many other newbe's) will not return
