Myleene Klass encourages everyone to sing more

Eight in 10 adults across the country like to sing out loud – although more than half admit they can’t keep a tune.

A study of 2,000 British adults found that just under half (47%) strongly believe that singing loudly and proudly improves their mood.

The best places to belt out a hit are in the car (32%), while cleaning (29%) and while bathing or showering (25%) – although two-thirds (65%) wish they could sing better.

To encourage Brits to belt out a tune, Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park will be transformed into Singers’ Corner, where Myleene Klass and English National Opera and Royal Opera House tenor Nicky Spence will officially take the stage open.

Pictures taken in Hyde Park today (Tuesday) show the moment the talented duo opened it up to the public, with Nicky conducting free master classes to help aspiring singers add some vibrato to their vocals.

The unveiling of Singers’ Corner marks the launch of the new show Anyone Can Sing, which premieres March 30 on Sky Arts, and follows six amateurs as they discover all the joys of singing while building the skills and confidence they need for performances a live audience – in just three months.

Myleene Klass says everyone can sing – and smiling while singing helps



Myleene Klass said: “Anyone can sing, there are just different degrees. My top tip for singing is to smile. It helps to lift the pallet.

“Singing flat can sharpen the sound. When singers smile, they use a mechanism to make themselves sound better.

“People love to sing somewhere secret, in the car or in the shower. In our minds we are all Mariah Carey.

“My secret place to sing is in the shower. There’s something to it. The acoustics are unmatched without furniture. It’s the echo. We are all free. It’s just a really nice feeling.

“When we’re happy, we sing. It’s really original and anyone can do it.”

The research also found that Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” (30%) was the top sing-along song, followed by the British rock band’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” (28%).

Opera (22%), rap (19%), heavy metal (14%) and hip-hop (12%) are the most popular genres.

And when it comes to the right lyrics, almost half (44%) want to make sure they know a song word for word – only 16% make it up over time.

It also found that more than half (54%) of those who enjoy breaking out into song said it made them happy when they did, and 44% agreed it helped relieve stress.

Myleene Klass added, “Regardless of your skill level, singing is exhilarating, relieves stress and can act as a brilliant mood and confidence booster.

“It helps us stand tall, breathe deeply and most importantly, have fun. So I invite everyone to belt out a tune at Singers’ Corner today to discover all the feel-good joys of singing.

“You can improve pretty quickly with a little practice and performance, so I encourage everyone to hit the Singers’ Corner stage today.

“Regardless of how you sing, belting out a melody is equally beneficial and can act as a great mood lift.”

The study also found that almost half (45%) of Brits have at some point been told they have a good singing voice, regardless of what they think.

But despite the stress-relieving benefits of singing, three in 10 (31%) were discouraged from singing out loud after their confidence was shaken by someone who said they couldn’t carry a tune.

As a result, nearly half (48%) are embarrassed to sing in front of others and 31% prefer to crack a tune with a chorus of voices rather than doing it alone.

The study, conducted via OnePoll, found that 69% believe it is important to sing, even if just a little.

Phil Edgar-Jones, director of Sky Arts, added: “When I was in elementary school trying to get into the school choir, I was told my voice wasn’t good enough and I had to mime.

“I haven’t sung since – until now. “Anyone Can Sing” aims to unleash the singer in all of us, regardless of ability. It’s all about the joy of the voice and we invite anyone who wants to sing to come and try it.”
