The Singing Tips by Benita Charles Show celebrates a successful year!

On Sunday, April 9, 2017, NY-Vocalist Benita Charles celebrated one year of giving beginner singers tips to become professional singers with her live-internet based teaching series called Singing Tips Live by Benita Charles. The show airs on Saturday evenings at 8 pm on Facebook Live, Periscope and Instagram Live.

It started with an idea and a dream to share her wealth of knowledge of singing to help beginner singers become seasoned and professional while sharing their gifts to the world. While the show focuses on singing and show business, it has become so much more as it has inspired people of all walks of life to live their dreams and perfecting them.

The inspiration behind the show was inspired by the 2014 movie, Get On Up (The Story of James Brown), starring Chadwick Boseman and Dan Aykroyd. There was a particular scene in the movie where James wanted to take a more executive role in his career and his manager (portrayed by Dan Aykroyd) said, "This is show business. You take care of the show and I'll take care of the business!" James replied, "No, I will do both." That's exactly what he did. Not only was he the greatest entertainer, the hardest working man in show business and made great music, he was also a shrewd business man. 

The movie inspired Benita to design her show to have a "Show part" and a "Business Part."
"The Show" Part is divided into sections such as Your Talent, Your live Performance, Your Original Music and Your Image. The "Business" Part includes Your Marketing/Promotion, Your Gigs, Your Original Music and Your Business. There are 10 tips in each section. Recent topics discussed include but not limited to equipment every singer should own, performing live in front of an audience, performance tips, writing your own songs and how to find your personal style for your our image.

 In March 2017, the Tuskegee Television network started airing special 15-minute episodes of the Singing Tips by Benita Charles Show specifically designed for the network. The difference with the live show and the shows for the network is greater content. Watch on charter channel 181 in Tuskegee public access station, and on Youtube: Tuskegee Television Network Inc.
