Sometimes singers create a problem by singing too quietly when they are singing with a mic onstage, resulting in loss of power and focus.
This is often caused by singing ‘to’ the mic instead of ‘to’ the audience. When you sing to the audience, instead of to the mic, it maintains the projection and support involved in singing to ‘people at a distance.’ It helps maintain the emotional connection with the audience, as well.
Volumes can be coordinated with the person running the sound so the singer can do their job of giving a good performance. The idea is to sing ‘past’ the mic, and let the mic capture and amplify the voice through the sound system.
