( Top 132 ) Female songs for singing competition

If you are preparing for a singing competition than it is vital to choose the right song. Most vocal teachers will say that the only thing that matters is the quality of your voice. For the most part, I do agree, although if you do not choose the correct song for your voice than you will definitely struggle, and people will notice. Think of your voice as being the cake and the song as being the cherry on top of it.

The good news is that there are more female than male singers so you have a lot of options when deciding what song to sing at a competition or audition. As a general rule of thumb, it is also a good idea to already know what style or genre of singing fits not only your voice but your personality as well. One thing that a lot of beginner singers tend to forget is the importance of the song’s energy, if this doesn’t fit your singing style than you should probably choose another song.

If you are a beginner singer than you also have plenty of options, you can find a detailed list on my site. The main thing that you will notice between the songs which I recommend for males and females to sing at a competition or audition is that female songs tend to have a lot of high notes. For most singers singing high notes is their biggest problem, so if you can pull off singing a song which has plenty of high notes than you will definitely stand out of the crowd.

Although you should keep in mind that you have to sing the high notes correctly, it is not about just hitting the notes, you will have to also be able to maintain them and do this correctly. On the other hand, if you are not that good at singing high notes than you should stick with songs which have more energy but have few or no high notes.
