A large number of people desire to start a gospel singing career but are scared they might not be successful, maybe they’ve heard rumors that gospel singers don’t make good money or they feel like the competition from the secular artistes is too high. The first thing I would love you to note is that whenever God is leading you to start something, it’s for two reasons: to bring glory to His name and for you to put food on your table. Let’s take a look at some of the successful gospel singers.

Gospel artist Sammie Okposo, Frank Edwards, Nikki Laoye, Sinach and many more gospel musicians are really successful and most of them are earning more than $420,000 collectively. They have gone through a lot of effort and hard work to become who they are now, you can make out time to research their stories which should motivate you on your journey to being a successful gospel artiste. Here are a few tips that can also help you in your journey:

1) TAKE SINGING LESSONS: Taking singing lessons will help you learn how to properly warm up your voice and breathe properly. Even if you’re a Nightingale when it comes to singing, the lessons will really help you in your singing career. Although majority of singing lessons involve learning how to sing classical, opera style music, you must realize that mastering the techniques taught will improve the strength of your singing voice and vocal range.



2) HAVE A SUCCESS MINDSET: Not having a success mindset is the biggest killer of success in gospel music industry. With the wrong mindset, a truly successful long term music career is impossible. I had the opportunity of knowing Da-music, and one of the things I’ve learnt from him is the mindset he has, not for once has he doubted his success. He had a success mindset and that is something every gospel music artist should have.

3) HAVE GOALS: The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life by knowing precisely what you want to achieve, and where you have to concentrate your efforts. You’ll also quickly spot the distractions that can, so easily lead you astray. Outline your lifetime goals, then break them into smaller goals. Create a one-year plan, six-month plan, one-month plan and even daily plans of progressively smaller goals that you should reach to achieve your life time goals.









4) GET OUT THERE ONLINE: If you’re trying to break into the business side of music, social networking is essential! Your direct line to someone who can help you get a foot in the door might be a tweet or Facebook update away, just seek for God’s direction and He will surely direct your path to your destiny helper. Have a website where you can control your identity completely and build your “brand”.
Life cannot be conducted from behind a keyboard. Music industry success can have a whole lot to do with who you know, and you certainly know God as a gospel artist, but you still need to put in your own effort so that God will connect your paths to your destiny helpers. The people who can help you aren’t going to come over and ring your doorbell, don’t be afraid to take chances and don’t be afraid of getting shut down.

5) SING SONGS THAT YOU FEEL: Gospel music is meant to be felt by the listeners, while vocal precision always matters, it doesn’t always matter the most in gospel music delivery. Attempting songs that you don’t connect with will reduce your ability to affect your audience. Choose songs that complement your personal experiences and singing talent, instead of songs that only showcase your vocal skills.

6) LEARN AN INSTRUMENT AND DO YOUR RESEARCH: Learning an instrument helps you play underlying notes in songs which can give your performance a unique audition. It’s also important to learn an instrument so you only depend on yourself to perform and make sure you do your research of some of your favorite singers, how they connected with their audience as this will help you have background knowledge as a gospel artist.

Go out there and be the amazing gospel artiste you are destined to be! Shine on!
