Billboard just released the 2012 Power 100 list, which ranks the 100 most powerful people in the music industry and I bet all of them take singing lessons in Los Angeles. The list reveals that the industry is changing! The power has shifted from the record labels to the artists, their managers, and the people who are booking them. Here at The Golden Voice in Los Angeles where we teach singers how to become stars, we encourage our students to be more than just singers, they need to be hip on the business happenings of the music industry. Having a voice coach and taking singing lessons is just the start, but until you understand the business that your in, you can’t excel.
