A rising to the challenge, despite the pandemic limitations

When the media revealed that The Weeknd would be the star of this year’s edition of the show, expectations were very high. Moreover, it was supposed to be a unique performance for many reasons. One of them was that due to the pandemic, only 25,000 spectators sat in the audience. Despite this, the artist rose to the challenge. He collected many positive reviews from both critics and fans. And undoubtedly, his performance will be one of the most memorable of all time. One thing that the spectators frequently noticed was the quality of the Weeknd’s voice. But there was no coincidence about it. Why? Because the guy responsible for this part of the show preparations was Ron Anderson. The man called a professional singing teacher to the stars.

Who is Ron Anderson, a vocal coach to the stars, and how does he work with his clients?

Speaking shortly, he is an extraordinary man working uniquely. Precisely, it is what every star who has taken the classes from Ron says. Why? Because Ron is not just another vocal coach. He is a former opera singer himself. He spent years on stage performing the hardest singing parts that human culture produced. Thus, Ron had to master the techniques of performing long, powerfully, and without any fail. At the same time, he had to sing without harmful overstraining his vocal cords. Decisively, this level of mastery needs comprehensive knowledge. Mainly about human anatomy, the vocal box, and a holistic approach to vocals. And this what Ron does and what he teaches. As a classical singer, he possesses even centuries-old knowledge. Among others, about making a performance easy and pleasurable but reliable. Ron always brings out the best from anyone. When hiring him, The Weeknd surely knew what he was doing.
