I've been observing and singing on worship teams for over 20 years and I've noticed that there are some consistent mistakes that can adversely impact a worship set.
Here are 7 common vocal problems that I've seen kill a worship set stone dead.
Imagine you buy the latest album from your favourite Worship Leader? You're settled down in a quiet place to soak and meditate, you're praying and you press play to start the track. What you hear are terrible, incoherent pitchy noises playing back in your ears. What you expected to hear was a sweet, dulcet and melodious voice, singing worship that you can easily listen to and sing along with, but instead its mumbling, incoherent, discordant and distracting.
Now imagine that the worship leader is Matt Redman? Kari Jobe? Dante Bowe? Chandler Moore? CeCe Winans?
Let's be honest. A mumbly, pitchy and incoherent voice is not what you really want to hear from your worship leaders, especially when you've spent money.

The Voice is an amazing piece of body tech!
It has the power to pull you in or push you away.
