You can effectively open up or wake your vocal cords before any vocal performance by drinking lots of water, indulging in therapeutic warm herbal teas like ginger, lemon, licorice, and ginseng; having warm salt gargles, and taking lozenges such as slippery elm or Fisherman's Friends. Meanwhile, you should also avoid throat and vocal cord irritants such as coffee, alcoholic beverages, carbonated drinks, and milk or other dairy products which can trigger excessive mucus production that can interfere with your vocal prowess.

Is pineapple juice or say even honey good to have before you sing?

I am doing recordings all this week and I am recovering from a flu, hopefully healed by now. Also my vocal cords are hopefully healed from acid reflux damage. But is pineapple juice or honey good to have before you sing? Thanks

Yes, both of them are excellent for vocal cords if you dilute them in warm water and drink two hours before practicing so that the anti-inflammatory effects of pineapple and soothing effects of honey start to work. For best proportions, use one tablespoon of honey per one cup of warm water (200 ml/7 oz) or 1/4th of pineapple juice mixed with 3/4th of warm water.

Otherwise, you can mix juices (grapefruit, apple, pineapple, etc.) with water with the ratio of 1 part of juice to 3 parts of water.

How can I perfect my voice to be clear and beautiful?

What would I do to make my voice clear and beautiful

First of all, you have to learn to sing like yourself. For this, address our tutorial on how to sing like yourself. This will include your own definition of beautiful singing. Every singer is beautiful to one audience or another. There is no ultimate "beautiful voice".

As for clarity, control your vibrato first. Vibrato may take away the feeling of clarity of voice if sang too fast; therefore, ensure to slow it down or hit the note without resorting to vibrato. Adhere to the rules in the article by hydrating your vocal cords. Eat healthily and do not have any bad habits. Avoid shouting or yelling when singing and always improve the color of your voice.

It is a good idea to work on articulation by singing vowels properly by not closing your jaw when singing all of them (a good measure is an inch or two between your teeth at most times) and also make sure that the chin is pointing slightly downwards while the head does not go up. This will allow you to use this technique or even alter it with other techniques while singing beautifully and clearly.

Sing with the average volume of the voice unless you are going for a specific genre of music. The average volume has the best control.
