Is there any possible way to get discovered as a singer/ actress?

I have been researching forever to try to find a way to sort of audition for movies and things like that. I have also been looking up on how to go somewhere to try to get some sort of record deal. nothing big, just something to start out with. any ideas?

There isn't really a way to get discovered. Like only 5% of actors and singers are. You actually have to go to LA to audition for movies, or go to a college that can help your skills. But you basically have to pay for a your own record. Of course you can try YouTube, but there is a very low chance you'll get discovered, but you should at least try.

5% ? Where did you get that figure? Maybe 5 in 50,000 will get noticed and some work and 1 will become successful. These figures were agreed upon as close figures of possible success in the industry by a panel at the USC and NYU Schools of Film about 3 years ago after studying the actual statistics. It was shown that a good film/dance/voice educated person had about a 45% better chance ratio within those figures and good looks added an extra/approximate 160% chance gain over that if combined with a solid film curriculum, and about 22% gain in chances of making it on looks without the education. Confusing as it sounds, sum it up as nearly impossible but much better odds than the Lottery. Film support work... the figures were much, much better but still not simple to break into. Who you know helps in this relatively closed community.
