Some people are very passionate about singing. While it is important to be committed to your performance and singing, try not to be too much of a perfectionist. Reject the negative thought that you will never be able to perform in front of a big gathering of people. More times than not it is all in the way we look at things. Depending on your mindset, you can either make it or break the situation. Develop the confidence you need to help you feel that that you are as good as other performers, once you prepare yourself to sing in front of audience. As long as you have prepared, you need not worry excessively about how you’re singing or trying to figure out what people are thinking while you are singing in front of an audience.
Remember, it is better for you to be yourself, rather than imitating your role model or any other singer or performer. When you sing, focus on what you are doing and stay positive about what you would like to accomplish. You might be pleasantly surprised at how you can start to overcome the fear of singing in front of an audience as you perform.
