All types of singing have positive psychological effects. The act of singing releases endorphins, the brain's "feel good" chemicals. It’s exactly the same when you eat a bar of chocolate. The good news with singing is that you don’t gain any calories!".
Singing in front of a crowd, a-la karaoke, naturally builds confidence, which has broad and long-lasting effects on general well-being.
Regular exercising of the vocal cords can even prolong life, according to research done by leading vocal coach and singer Helen Astrid, from The Helen Astrid Singing Academy in London, "It’s a great way to keep in shape because you are exercising your lungs and heart.
“Singing has physical benefits because it is an aerobic activity that increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises major muscle groups in the upper body, even when sitting.
Singing has psychological benefits because of its normally positive effect in reducing stress levels through the action of the endocrine system which is linked to our sense of emotional well-being.
Psychological benefits are also evident when people sing together as well as alone because of the increased sense of community and belonging.”
And as Sheldon Cooper (from Big Bang Theory) says "Live long and prosper", I wonder if he had Karaoke in mind when he said that!

If you feel led to do something in music, and to be a good singer has been one of your frustrations, think again. Here are some voice singing tips that will help. Most professional singers are not born stars.
That should be encouraging to you and not hinder you from pursuing your dreams. The fact remains constant - everyone can be a great singer regardless of age or anything. Just consider the singing tips given below that will help you to keep your enthusiasm about singing. Tip 1: Decide whether you want to hire a singing coach or just purchase some good singing software. There are always advantages and disadvantages between the two options. A guide from a professional is always better than to work on your voice alone. But, the availability and your convenience are always at stake. Now, if you know your capacity and you can learn better even without a coach, then buying singing software could be best for you. But, you have to monitor your progress alone or record every practice and later on ask someone who knows something about singing to get their feedback. That way you can track your rate of improvement. Tip 2: It's always good to get some inspiration from your favorite singer. On the other hand, if you feel sure that you want to make it in the singing industry, you have to find ways to be unique that will separate you from others. Choose songs best for your voice, your own style of music and experiment on having a different singing style that will create your own identity. Tip 3: Take care of your asset. If for example, you gain the level of being a professional singer and you really have what it takes to be a star, never ever take for granted your voice. Smoking can worsen your voice and you are more likely to increase the rate of throat cancer. Same thing with alcohol, avoid any alcoholic drinks and caffeine because there is a tendency that your voice may get irritated. Drinking lots and lots of water is best recommended, warm water to be in particular as cold drinks can also irritate the vocal cords. Last, don't misuse your vocal cords like doing unnecessary loud talking. Let your voice rest, your vocal cords deserve a quality break. Tip 4: Pay attention to all of the singing techniques and make sure you do them the right way. It's very easy to determine whether you are doing it wrong, if you are straining your voice.
Properly breathing to produce quality in your voice is always the primary concern, the correct posture, placing the tongue and soft palate in the right position, hitting the right key, improving vocal range, and many other essential techniques that every singer has to know are very important lessons that need to be taken seriously.
Tip 5: Practice, practice, and practice to master your craft. Even if you feel that you are a very confident singer. Make sure to do the warm ups properly, do the routine correctly, and never forget to do the cool down exercise right after the routine.
