Michael Jackson's Vocal Lessons

One of the things that distinguishes a superstar from a star is the amount of work they put in. A star may be able to get by on superior talent alone, but a superstar strives to be the best, which takes constant, incessant work.

Below is a video of the late, great Michael Jackson having a voice lesson with celebrity voice teacher Seth Riggs via phone. Supposedly Michael warmed up for several hours and had a voice lesson before almost every vocal recording session. Of course, we all know the results.

"Funny, I don't know why your singing 'Ah' instead of 'Uh.'" Quote of the clip.

I know growing up I always had this impression that people like MJ woke up in the morning ready to perform. I never realized the hard work and dedication it took to get to that level. It's something I wish I would've learned many years ago. Bobby, if it's one thing I've learned from your blog, it's that I can set higher musical goals and have a fighting chance of achieving them. Thanks, Bobby.
