In this Preshow Rituals segment, the pop artist, Bianca Gisselle, shares what she does before every show. You can check out her rituals, after the break.
My preshow ritual is all about grounding myself while simultaneously getting hyped for the show. So normally while I’m doing my hair and makeup, which I find relaxing, I’ll be listening to a motivating playlist. One of my favorites is the Feeling Good playlist on Spotify that features timeless classics from The Jackson 5 to Otis Redding to Stevie Wonder. Normally what follows is lots of ridiculous dancing around the room and lip syncing with the best of them.
Now that my body is warm I move to vocal warm-ups for about 15 minutes. Usually, my vocal chords are warm from the soundcheck so these warm-ups are just a little more stretching and breathing exercises. And yes they sound funny and I make funny faces while I do them.
Finally, if it’s not a solo show, right before we go out we’ll do a circle up to reconnect with each other. I totally believe that this allows us to sync up together so the show is even more cohesive.
