The effect of the debate on singers versus non-singers, which stemmed from a tweet about lip-synching, did not merely end with a series of reactions in social media coming from artists and performers. From internationally acclaimed artists to legitimately claiming to be non-singers, the debate put to test the caliber of performers. Questions as to why an actor or actress gets to receive record awards surfaced. Eventually, the debate ended with economics. The reality is that not all good singers can bring enough sales or have the charisma to attract an audience. As actors and actresses are more visible, naturally, they will have the fans who can buy their albums.
However, the positive effect of the debate is that entertainment shows have raised their game. To prove to the audience that all the performers in a show are legitimate singers, the production agreed that all should sing live for a particular number. The production wanted a spectacular opening number and singing live was the best plan to make the audience excited. The talents agreed and the production only needed to get the commitment of Male Talent (MT) and Female Talent (FT).
When MT was asked to sing live in his planned production number with FT, he said singing live was not a problem. MT readily agreed and said that since he considers himself a singer, he can do it. However, given that he will be singing with FT, he told the production to talk to FT. When FT found out that MT agreed to sing live, she said “Yes!” The expectation is that FT will indeed agree to prove her wrong her doubters.
MT and FT got the material and were expected to practice. Then, three days before the actual show, the production received a call from FT. FT said that she was not feeling well, and was losing her voice. Further, she might not have the voice needed to sing live for the production. Therefore, the number had to proceed without her.
Clearly, FT backed out of the challenge. While the production respected her decision (after all, the show can still go on without her), those who learned about FT’s decision started to speculate that something deeper motivated her decision not to continue. In her heart, FT knew that she is not capable of singing live. Added to this fear is the pressure resting on her shoulder as she has been assumed to be one of those non-singers. Perhaps in due time and hours of practice and training, FT can finally address the public clamor, which is for her to sing live. Will she be able to do it soon?
