If you’re having a hard time knowing where to begin, a great place to start is recognizing and observing some of the greats! Figure out what and who you love, learn to do what they do, and then adapt it to who you are. Beware however, that an echo isn’t a copy. It still has an authentic and unique sound and place. Observe, attempt, echo, adapt.
3. Be the bird. In other words, completely buy into the idea, that whatever words, sounds or songs are coming out of Dubsmash, are coming out of YOU. Embrace the voice, embody the persona, be the bird.
