Is there really a difference between vocalists, singers, and entertainers? I for one considered myself all of the above. I had approached other artists in the past, and they all introduced themselves as one of the obove expressions. What are you ladies?

Hi there,
I'm definitely all three of those! I hope...:-)
You go girl!!!!!
I try, as many of you do, to do it all - I am a singer, a vocalist & an instrumentalist. But I find I get into trouble when I actively try to separate one part of my performing persona from another... for me it's best to let each aspect bleed into the next, flowing without boundaries... then the music really comes!!
Beautiful! I like this answer very much, Thank you for sharing!
Thank you Sally! For your opinion! You are right is best sometimes to let every talent flow naturally!
My husband and I had a similar discussion. He said I was a vocalist not a musician. Then I had him check out the dictionary. We are all one in the same. Don't you entertain when you sing? Don't singers vocalize? I am them all!

Thank you for sharing KoKe!
I have very distinctive ideas about what a vocalist is and isn't. A vocalist is someone who takes their craft seriously and it shows in their delivery. A good vocalist doesn't really need showmanship because they will connect with the audience through the emotion delivered through their interpretation of the music. A good vocalist touches you deep in your soul and leaves an indelible impression. There must also be versatility in delivery otherwise, it just gets monotonous.

An entertainer doesn't have to necessarily be a strong singer. Their dynamic personality and ability to personally connect with their audience is what gets them over. They dazzle you and make you smile. You sing along, clap, dance and laugh out loud. The fact that their skills may not be as strong as others slips right past you and they too leave a lasting impression.

We hear singers everyday on the radio, that's why I don't listen anymore. (LOL)

I consider myself an entertainer.
This is what I think also there is a difference between the two! and at the same time you can be good at both. Thank you for sharing! You are probably a great entertainer! GOd bless!!!!

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
