5 Common acts to show you have potential to become an artist!

1) Sing the passion of music from the heart 2) Eyes of determination and willingness to learn 3) Motivation to get a hold of whoever's necessary to chase there dreams 4) Sets goals all the time and try's to achieve them 5) Belief and Confidence Synopsis: You walk into a store to see someone singing/rapping a song. They show the passion of music from the heart. You talk to them about that song and you can see the fire in there eyes. In the conversation they tell you they like all genres of music . They have determination in there eyes and willingness to learn. You give them your cd's to check out and they say "Oh I do music myself but, I need to record more" If music is really there dreams they will have the motivation to get a hold of you. Now if act three happens and you are working on music together. Do they set goals and write them down? Do they talk to you about them? Even tho act five is the most important. It is not necessary to have right away. The artist must believe in there self/team or that there dreams are possible in order to succeed. When they gain confidence and have belief then, they control there Destiny!!
