Why Singers Should Wear A Mask

Hey there, this is John Henny and on today’s vocal tip I want to talk about Why Singers Should Wear A Mask.

We’ve heard all the arguments. “Masks are intrusive.” “Masks don’t really help stop the spread of the coronavirus.” But that’s actually not true. Masks are perfectly healthy. And according to research, scientific consensus, as of right now, the masks help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

And singers, I don’t care how young you are. I don’t care how invincible you feel. You do not want this. This can give permanent lung damage. And I’ve talked to voice doctors, and they’ve told me the coughing alone can be catastrophic on the vocal cords, that the constant slamming with the violent coughing that accompanies this disease. 

So please do yourself and do your loved ones a favor and wear a mask.
