What are some things I could do to prepare for singing a solo?

Question by Shannon: What are some things I could do to prepare for singing a solo?
In church, I am going to sing a solo.
Sometimes, my voice is not very clear, or precise.
The solo is to be sung in a sweet, clear, pretty voice,
which i have when i have the right preparations.
Is there something i can do the night before, or the day of to warm myself, and my voice up?
I heard somewhere that salty foods helps your voice.
This is an odd question i know, but i would really appreciate the help !

the most important thing is to visualize the performance from beginning to end!!!

Next, you just need to relax the throat….try not to be uptight or the throat muscles will not work properly. Drink lots of water….DEFINITELY NOT MILK OR ANYTHING that coats the throat.

Hum gently before church begins.

When it comes time for your solo, enjoy it!!! Sing your melody to god!!! Make him pleased and the heck with everyone else.

“Prepare the Way, O Zion”, St. Bartholomew’s Church

#65 from the Hymnal 1982. Closing Hymn on the Second Sunday of Advent at St. Bartholomew’s, an Episcopal church in New York City on December 4, 2011. Words: (Swedish) Frans Mikael Franzen, ca. early 19th century; (English) composite translation, ca. mid 20th century Tune: ‘Bereden väg för Herran’ from “Then Swenska Psalmboken”, 1697. After a long hiatus involving the accidental breaking of my camera, I contribute another video of the music of St. Bartholomew’s Church. As you can see, since this summer, a second altar has now been added to the center of the church, and all of the chairs are now in, replacing the pews. St. Bartholomew’s is on its way, transforming itself into a more flexible and intimate place. This beautiful and simple Swedish hymn references the readings for today, which were Isaiah 40:1-11 and Mark 1:1-8.

Do you need to prepare anything when you are to visit a Roman Catholic Church for the very first time?

Question by Solina: Do you need to prepare anything when you are to visit a Roman Catholic Church for the very first time?
My friend has been considering to attend to a Roman Catholic Church’s mass for the very first time. Obviously, since she has never visited a Roman Catholic Church before, she was not baptised nor confirmed. In her first visit, what should she prepare or bring, so that she would not feel awkward by making a crucial mistake?
