I haven’t listed any adult songs or adult themed songs however please don’t limit yourself to singing songs even if they have adult words in them – perhaps ask a parent to help you change the lyrics of the song so that you can eliminate the inappropriate words. For example part of the Price Tag song you can change the word Video hoe to Video Girl.

These are just some ideas, if you have any other song ideas or arrangement ideas for our readers please comment below. We would love to hear from you!

HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY ARTICULATION AND DICTION SKILLS?

 

It’s not so difficult as you think. Please see below attached tongue twisters which will help you immensely. Try to read slowly but give attention to every syllable, consonant and vowel. Experiment with loud and quiet sound. Imagine that the audience is sitting far away from you and project the sound, make it clear.
