Begin by sitting down and making a list of qualities that will allow you to reach the height of fame. Be honest about your singing abilities, appearance, will power, drive and determination. Measure this list against your qualities that you need to overcome or work on that could get in the way of you becoming a singer.

Hire a vocal coach to help you hone your singing skills. Locate a teacher using a local newspaper, the Internet or school programs. Find someone who is both accomplished and whom you can work with on a personal basis to begin helping you with your formal vocal training.

Take any opportunities to sing in contests or on a commercial level. Network with local labels and recording studios. Look for someone who would be willing to let you record a demo after you have received sufficient training and experience.

Record a demo of four songs that showcase your personal style and talent. Get those demo tapes to major record executives in any way possible. Take any opportunity to sing at nightclubs, talent shows, karaoke bars, choirs and commercial opportunities as talent scouts frequent these locations. Maintain an image that fits your personality and stay consistent with the stage presence you wish to project to potential music scouts.

Be persistent in pursuing a recording deal. Distribute your demo to any and everyone who is interested and follow up after you have distributed your recording for feedback and criticism to help you with your search. Establish yourself on a local level to catch the attention of larger entertainment entities.
