Christine Saadé
Vocalist and Producer

Bigger is better. Don’t hold back!


Participate in open mics, karaokes, spoken word, poetry jams and improv.

Have a cold? Drink warm liquids and rest before you perform.

Don’t stop just because you made a mistake. Keep going!

Drink water. Stay hydrated!

Mumblers are never taken seriously. Open your mouth and people will listen.

If you’re trying to think of what to say next, then you are not listening.

It’s not about you, its about connecting with the audience.

No one cares about your mistakes more than you.

Practice everyday in front of a full length mirror.

Exercise/energize hours before you perform. Run, swim, yoga etc.

When you perform, Smile! If you think you’ll look silly then consider what it looks like when when all you do is frown.


Listening is equally as important as singing or speaking. Be teachable!

Use stage fright to your advantage. The more scared you are, the bigger you should be.

Stage Fright

To loosen up, dance while you practice your song/speech.

Smiling opens the sides of your mouth and helps with projection.

Everyone has a talent. Many choose to ignore it.

Be teachable.

Stay focused on your goals.

Humming is an excellent vocal warm up.

Relax, slow down, take your time and don’t rush. Less is more!

Be patient with yourself and you will learn faster.

If you are talking over someone else, then you are not listening.

Practice daily in the shower. The steam helps open up your sinuses.

You can only teach yourself so much before you hit a wall.

Focus on the message and stage fright becomes less important.

Listen to yourself. Appreciate the good, fix the bad.
