“The Voices” of Empty “Idols”

The video below generally sums up the feelings of us who are not fans of singing competition shows like, “American Idol” and “The Voice.”

We don’t need future musical “idols.” We need singers and bands that are a combination of musicians, performers and storytellers who start from the ground level in a garage or music room in a school and work their way up to as big a venue as fans demand. This is a process that takes years and years of dedication, endurance and dealing with a variety of struggles in the real world of music, not weeks on a television show.

How can you distinguish between great bands/singers and competitors on, “The Voice” and “American Idol?” You can hear it in their voice.
