PLACE your Voice in the Mask | Sing with Forward Placement | #DrDan ????

What is Vocal Placement? “Sing into the mask!” “Feel the voice behind your eyes,” “Sing on the lips!” You've probably had a singing teacher or heard someone here on YouTube giving similar instructions to these. So what’s actually being asked of a singer when these directions are being given and can this kind of imagery be helpful when learning to sing and improve the voice?

0:22 What is Vocal Placement?
Placement is a metaphorical term we singing teachers give to the sensation we experience as our sound travels along the vocal tract.

1:43 The Tongue plays a crucial role!
Your tongue’s overall position in the mouth determines the placement of the resonance.

2:30 Vocal Placement Singing Exercise
Forward placement is a really efficient way to sing and more often than not produces a better contemporary vocal sound.

The myth of bringing your full, authentic self to work | Jodi-Ann Burey

Visit to get our entire library of TED Talks, transcripts, translations, personalized talk recommendations and more.

Calls for authenticity at work ask for passionate people with diverse, fresh perspectives who challenge old ways of thinking. But too often workplace culture fails to support the authenticity of professionals of color and other underrepresented groups, leading instead to backlash and fewer opportunities. Writer Jodi-Ann Burey outlines steps toward exposing privilege and achieving true equity on the job -- and implores those in leadership positions to accept responsibility for change.

How The 1960s Changed Shopping Forever | Turn Back Time: The High Street | Absolute History

In this episode the shopkeepers move into the swinging sixties, and big changes hit the high street. Every shop has transformed completely - 1960s mass production of meat, bread and clothing means the bakers find themselves running a milk bar, the butcher sells hardware and the dressmaker is now running a hair salon. The grocers has become self-service, bringing a more modern shopping experience to customers. The bakers have to produce milkshakes and burgers, while the dressmaker turns her hand to bouffants and beehives. The butcher finds himself in direct competition with the grocer.

As the shopkeepers struggle with the changes in their trades, the town sees first-hand why Britain turned its back on traditional shops and embraced the supermarket. At the end of the week, history dictates that, for some, it is time to leave, and customers realise just what they're losing.

Why you should not bring your authentic self to work | Jodi-Ann Burey | TEDxSeattle

In this 2020 TEDxSeattle talk, Jodi-Ann Burey explores the nuances of what professionals of color and other underrepresented groups face when they are told to “bring your authentic self to work.” Many who do so may face backlash when navigating company cultures designed around white privilege, exposing themselves to penalties for not conforming to the dominant culture. Burey calls for people of color and other underrepresented people to focus their energies on realizing their own imaginations for racial justice on their terms. Separately, Burey outlines steps toward achieving more equitable and just workplaces, and implores company leadership and people with privilege to accept accountability for changing their cultures.

2:49 - “Professionalism” as code for white cultural norms and standards
6:44 - How authenticity masks the need for systemic change
9:30 - Shares how gaslighting works to deny the realities of people of color at work
11:34 - Explains the work people of color have to do to mask themselves at work
12:54 - A call to action for people of color to create their own spaces for authenticity
13:19 - A call for those with power and privilege to take on the work of changing workplace culture

As an avid speaker, writer, and equity advocate, Jodi-Ann Burey is on a mission to disrupt “business as usual.” Her goal is to achieve social change through the lens of historically underrepresented communities, their experiences, and the systemic intersections that address inequities.

Burey holds a cautious optimism for our future. She explains that “as a Black woman in America, it is always better to be born in the future. There is no place in the past that was better for Black people. I would always want to be born in the future. Though, a portal has been opened to make racial justice and equity possible. There is no promise of that, but it feels good to be in the moment now, when things are shifting.”

Burey prides herself on being a cool auntie, a twist-out queen, cancer survivor, adventurer, and reluctant dog owner. She’s currently working on her first book and podcast called Black Cancer, which explores stories about women of color and healthcare.

The biology of race in the absence of biological races: Rick Kittles at TEDxNorthwesternU

Defining race continues to be a nemesis. Knowledge from human genetic research is increasingly challenging the notion that race and biology are inextricably linked, engendering tremendous ramifications for human relations, identity and public health. It has become fashionable for geneticists and anthropologists to declare that race is a social construction. However, there is little practical value to this belief since few in the public believe and act on it. Thus race is mainly a social concept which in the US has been based on skin color and ancestry. Yet biomedical studies continue to examine black/ white differences. Kittles discusses why using race in biomedical studies is problematic using examples from U.S. groups which transcend racial boundaries and bear the burden of health disparities.

Rick Kittles, PhD, received a BS in biology from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1989 and a PhD in biological sciences from George Washington University in 1998. He then helped establish the National Human Genome Center at Howard University. Currently, Kittles is an associate professor of medicine in the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), as well as the associate director of the UIC Cancer Center.

Kittles is well known for his research of prostate cancer and health disparities among African Americans. He has also been at the forefront of the development of ancestry-informative genetic markers, and how genetic ancestry can be used to map genes for common traits and disease. His work on tracing the genetic ancestry of African Americans has brought light to many issues, new and old, which relate to race, ancestry, identity, and group membership.

TV Air Date: February 17, 2019

A clear look back on our history—the history of socialism, and ultimately the history of mankind going back to the garden of Eden and the fall of mankind into sin—would dispel quite a few myths, including the false utopia continually promised by mendacious politicians, and lapped up by the next naive generation.

Why is a false view of human nature ultimately harmful? Dr. D. James Kennedy takes a look at that vital question in his message, “Where Did We Go Wrong?”

Can anyone sing? Do you have to be born with talent?

*** Visit for more info. ***
Voice Lessons with Madeleine Harvey

*** Can anyone sing? Do you have to born with talent ***


I wanted to take a minute today, and talk about one of the most popular questions I get in my lessons. And that is, “Do you have to be born with talent? Or can anyone sing?”

To be honest with you, I’ve never liked this question, and I’ll tell you why. For most people, it tends to reinforce the popular belief that there is some element involved that is beyond your control. As if you are either born with some magical ability…or not. And for many people, this is all that they can see. That there is some group over here of insanely talented people, and they are over there. So that space between is all they can see. Many people end up giving up before they really get started. They may not believe that they are not over here with the talented people, so why bother. But don’t be intimidated by that space.

Try not to get ability confused with hard work, and dedication. Remember, everyone starts somewhere. There was a time that even the best singers today sounded very different when they were just starting out. Unfortunately, I am also willing to bet that every successful person in the entertainment industry has been told somewhere, sometime that they just don’t have talent. That is a painful truth in this business. The difference between people who are successful, and those they simply decide to do something else is commitment. People who succeed in this business are not willing to give up their dream. They use this feedback as a stepping-stone to get from here, to there. All they knew is that they loved to sing. And that love kept them improving.

So if you’re feeling like you may not be over in the talented group. Try not to see that space in between. First of all, acknowledge the simple fact that when you see someone who has a truckload of “talent.” What you are noticing is that you have excellent taste! This is your preference calling to you. What you are actually seeing is your potential being reflected to you from another person. Otherwise, they would not get your attention at all. So don’t fault yourself for not being the ultimate expression of all you can be right now. This gap is where growth happens.

Dig a little deeper. Ask yourself, “What is it that I love about singing?” “Does it make me happy?” “Does it make me feel alive?” “Does it bring me joy?” Well then, singing is for you! The truth about love is, when you love something, you want to explore it, spend time with it, and master it. It feels good, like you’re being your most authentic self.

Remember, if you can talk, you can sing. What makes a great singer is not the ability they were born with. Natural ability is only going to get you so far. I would say, every successful singer today, have a combination of these 3 traits.

1. Passion! Instead of using the word talent, lets use a different word. Passion! Your passion, and desire to communicate is the #1 thing you will need to be the singer you’ve always wanted. It is the wind in your sails! It’s going to keep you exploring new possibilities, stretching your potential.

2. The ability to bond with the audience. In my opinion, this is the most desirable trait an entertainer can have. It’s the reason why I love the artists I do. They pull me in; make me feel like I’m apart of the story. And I love them for it!

3. The love of learning. When it comes to singing, there is always something new to explore. A new feeling to express, a new note to hit, a new artistic style to master. You, as the singer are always evolving, and so is your voice. It is an athletic process that works with tiny little muscle coordination’s. So stay in shape, and continue to push yourself past your limits.

Before you go today, I want you to think about something… If your voice were as free as you’ve always wanted it to be. What would that feel like? What would you do? Who would you be? If you can imagine it, you have the potential to live it. Passion is contagious! So keep exploring yours, and make it real! You can do it!
