Some artists think that their music, singing, dancing and virtuosity in playing an instrument is the most important in their career but they still don’t achive success. They are frustrated, they’re starting to have depression and other mental health problems and often they get addicted to alcohol and drugs because they work hard but their actions don’t make any effects. But maybe they are only concentrating on themselves and they don’t see what is the most important in music and entertainment industry?
Great songs with a wise message and music that evokes emotions is undoubtedly necessary to win people’s hearts but sometimes it’s not enough.

Like an amazing ballet dancer Chinara Alizade from Bolshoi Theatre of Russia said:
When you dance, you are telling your story to the viewer, and your story won’t look true without genuine emotion. Some artists, preparing for the performances, working more on the sounds or technique of choreography, forgetting about emotions.⠀
Some people believe that emotions will suddenly manifest themselves on the day of the performance. But this is a delusion! This can be if you have natural charisma and artistry. Don’t forget that going on stage in front of a big audience adds fear and excitement that will interfere with your performance.⠀
You need to think over your image, your emotions, and what you want to say to your audience. You have to be honest, not perfect. Perfection isn’t necessary to gain devoted fans. You need to be expressive and be able to express yourself through your art but the audience will decide if they want to love you.
