sipping water is good for the voice. my other advice is learn from this in the future

Drink a load of milk, that'll probably soothe your throat.

wrong wrong and wrong. coffee. hot coffee. ok, maybe some milk honey or lemons now, but not anywhere close to the gig! your throat will be soothed but coated in gunk that you can't sing through. hot coffee. dont chug or anything, drink as normal. between losenges. i hate this problem. do you smoke?

Listen to YOUNGBLOOD but make sure you don't drink any close to the show or you'll produce extra mucus and it will make it more difficult to sing.

I find that when it's hard for me to talk if I do talk (even though it's harder) my throat loosens up and it becomes easier to talk.

EDIT: And yeah, it's just turning to Autumn (or Fall) here and I caught a cold (which turned into a sinus infection, as they always do with me) about a week ago so I haven't been able to sing for about a week. I should be fully recovered in a day or two.

I never get sick, lol but it sucks when I do. Its fall here I love the fall. I'm not so worried tonight about my gig, because I don't have to sing if I don't want to, but about the date- cuz I can barely talk

drink lots of water and don't try to talk for half the day should heal a little faster that way

you know what, he might actually be right. it COULD help....maybe. but if you want a safer alternative by some of that "crystal clear" vocal spray stuff. its made to help your throat in these situations.

I would stay away from anything with too much caffeine in it or milk aswell. I would stick with ice water and lemon or raspberry tea.

get some warm water, like not too hot but not too cold. a little more hot than cold though, and then put a ****load of salt and mix it, then go to the washroom and start gurgling it. Try doing it wihtout making any noise, then like a really low whisper, then high whisper, then start using ur voice making a low note, then slowly go higher, then higher, remembering to spit it out and use some new salt water sips. keep like gurgling while doing different things with your throat, so that it will clean it up all over. do this a lot today. and also drink some warm stuff like tea, no cold ****. and honey is your best friend too. and also if you want, try eating some bread. like just bread, or some kind of cake, but some kind of thing that gts all sticky in your throat, it can kind of help it out cuz i remember my dad told me to eat some bread and i did and it felt like it was scraping out all the **** in my throat when i swallowed it. not rlly but it kind of helped .

and if u feel like something is in your throat, then like do a thing where you're screaming, but don't scream properly, that way it wil come out. don't do this too often though cuz it will get the mucus out which is a good thing but a lot of times it will just hurt u even more and if ur throat was just bluffing and nothing comes out, then it's like you're hurting yourself and not helping yourself at the same time. if yellow stuff comes out then it's helping

I have a slight suspicion that, that may have something to do with the fact that he has alot of money oh and a very sexy mole. I mean wich girl doesn't find that sexy.

I knew that would be the answer. In that case, i think you should cancel. So you miss one gig, big deal. Unless theres like a record company representative there, just miss it.

Don't listen to me though, I is a n00b.
