1. In your practice:
2. In the band:
Don’t neglect the backing vocalists! -If you are a worship leader, I know you have the whole band to think about and a lot going on, but though it’s tempting (especially when juggling the whole arrangement) try not to ignore the backing vocals- they tend to get the least comment, feedback and direction and they can really make or break the worship!
The human voice is immensely powerful in communicating the message. Make time to experiment with harmonies and using backing vocals as another instrument to add dynamic and colour. Also try varying from time to time; sometimes use just one BV, sometimes use two or even three for different effects. When organizing the rota try to figure out which voices blend best together and who is great at singing alone etc. If you are booking two BVs then pick one who has a higher range and one with a lower range etc..
