I'm a beginner at singing. Is it normal that my singing is totally ridiculous?

I'll keep trying but I sound pretty bad. Does everyone sound bad at first?

Practice makes perfect and you should look it up on the Internet and try to do some of the different exercises. The main thing is to sing from your diaphragm which is a thing at the bottom of your ribs and it is very hard to learn how to do that but if you keep singing from your throat you will get nowhere

I'm pretty awful too, Marcus, but I found that if I have good backing I can carry a tune. Once you get behind a microphone you need to be confident, project your personality and, above all, find songs that suit your voice.

One guy I knew was basically a musician but he also sang to large audiences. I asked him how he got started and he said he started with easy numbers and gradually worked his way up.

Another young fellow who has visited my home a few times was selected for Australian Idol, but his existing contract prohibited him from appearing there. He was just the opposite. He started singing in a school play and surprised everybody by doing so well. He spent the next couple of years with a singing teacher until he became very professional. I'll add a link to one of his songs.

Good luck with your singing. It's something you'll love doing.

First thing is to have confidence.

Also, if you think your voice is really bad, maybe see a voice coach?

A singing teacher will help you control your voice and projection by using your diaphragm and throat constriction to soften your voice.

Well yea... Kind of like your first basketball or baseball/softball or football game. You will suck. But by about your 4 year you will be awesome :)
