In this Preshow Rituals segment, the singer-songwriter, Dani Prieto, reveals what she does before taking the stage. You can check out the rituals, after the break.
Before performances or concerts, I always get drowned with excitement because I get to be where I am most comfortable, on stage surrounded by amazing people! Usually, I have a very optimistic mentality before a show, but every time without fail, I always wake up with a scratchy throat and a runny nose. I don’t know if it’s just because my body knows that there’s a show that day and decides to freak me out a little, but my mom always makes me the best home remedy before any show (warm water, a spoon of honey, and a spoon of lemon); this does the trick for me <3 Before the show starts, I always shake my right arm 4 times, my left arm 4 times, each leg 4 times, and I scream a big woooo! just to get the last jitters out and I go in with a “let’s do this” mentality. Performing and being in that environment makes my heart smile every time.
