Just practice and put it to work. Take vocal lessons, join choir or chorus. Start a small band in your home or at your school. Anything in general.

ive been practicing and practicing A LOT since i was 4 or 5 and ive made alot of improvement. 1 big example of that is going from singing in my talking voice to my actual singing voice. i've done a total of 9 singing/vocal lessons as of now and my CASA's going to get me 5 or 6 more soon i think. my school doesnt have a choir or chorus so idk about that. idk i feel like i cant do much.

Find a local talent search or contest. Get noticed. Sing in a local church or organization. Someone will recognize a good talent and help you get noticed. Good luck

what do u mean by organization? and yes i think getting noticed (or discovered) is the next requirement that needs to get done. where could that be that i can do? and i go to this church every 2nd sunday of each month,but idk how i can do that
Report as
County or state fairs, fund raisors, nursing homes. The places are numerous. Talk to your pastor about singing a solo sometime. Getting noticed will help to get singing gigs and request.

Does your school have a choir? You should try to join that. It's really fun, and you get to sing with others. You can probably get solos.

If there is no choir or other singing venue (like a church) for you to join, invest in a tape recorder, or an MP3 player that can record; I have one, and they're not too expensive ($20-30).

If you can find access to a computer, you can plug the MP3 player in and save your recordings on a file (if it's a public computer, you should also get a USB drive and save your recordings there).

Find a friend who has a computer and internet access. Maybe they can help you with a YouTube account and help you upload and stuff. Maybe they might have a web-camera.

I wish you good luck.

While I'd love to offer you encouragement and hope, you do realize that you can throw a rock and hit 12 people who want to do the same thing. It's not easy. There are a lot of talented people who never make it and there are a lot of no-talent people who rise to the top despite their failings. Ya never know why some make it big and others don't. Here's the thing.....if you enjoy what you're doing and you're good at it, you don't need the rich and famous part. You'd still be doing what you love to do.

To become a famous singer, start of at your local coffee shop or with a group of friends form a band. You have to work your way up to get to the top. You cannot just get there.

It's not that easy... Millions want to be famous. Only 1 in a million get to be famous. half the people that are famous don't even have a high I.Q. Like a person mentioned before..be a dentist. WE NEED MORE OF THOSE. There was once an interview and a star didn't know what the Sistine Chapel was..That's sad.
