Linda Davis Boosts Confidence for Aspiring Singers
For Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, the crazy life of a successful country music star is old hat. She grew up in the music business, sitting at the side of the stage while her mother, singer Linda Davis, performed. Linda rose to fame in the late '80s and early '90s and hit the top of the charts in 1993 with 'Does He Love You,' a duet with Reba McEntire. Now, Linda is putting that advice and knowledge to good use by hosting workshops for aspiring performers.
Having more than 20 years of experience, the veteran performer recently launched the consulting firm, Stage/Performance 101, to direct and guide new entertainers using techniques in helping an artist find their comfort zone on stage. "My objective is to allow the artist/client to be an individual, to always be themselves, not say what I would say or move across the stage like I would move across the stage," Linda explains on her website. "The repetition of our work together is the key to each client having a boost in confidence once they walk on stage at their event and know that their show will be better for having made the effort with Stage/Performance 101."
Linda, who holds five to six workshops each month, has clients ranging from an 8-year-old girl in a talent competition, to a pageant contestant who wants to win at the state level and the new recording artist who needs a 10-song set to flow seamlessly for 45 minutes. She will hold her next workshop on Thursday, July 22, in Charleston, S.C.
