If you had the choice to either be a soloist or in a group, which would you choose and why?
I love being in the spotlight, and I think would be fun to be a soloist, but I think would be even more fun to work in a group. Through experience with all the Happy!Project girls, we have disputes and arguments some times, but I’ve become to close them, so they are like my sisters! I love them, and I love working with them, and I know I can always depend and trust them. So, I think working in a group is better!
I like working in a group, you may have to share lines and the spotlight but the work that you put in it as a group is what makes it worth while. Theres alot of fun in practices and performing in a group that def. beats out being a soloist at times.
I would much prefer to be in a group than solo. I wouldn’t mind the occasional solo songs or duets, like they get in the concerts, but I definitely wouldn’t want to be a complete solo act. As a soloist, all the attention and pressure is on you alone. Rehearsals are alone. Everything is alone. With a group, you get people to perform with, people to work and help each other out, you make friends and share bonds over things that I think soloist miss out on. Having other people, even if it’s just ONE other person, gives you someone to play off of when performing, someone to share your experiences with, have fun with, and to help each other out. I far prefer being with others than being on my own.
I think a group is more fun!
Group all the way! Practicing and performing as a group is much more fun! Besides, I don’t think my vocals are not strong enough to carry as a soloist…
Hmmmm thats a difficult one! On one hand a soloist would be awesome because you get all the fangirls and boys…and you’re independant…but I think my answer would have to be group just because of the bonds you make with your bandmates. You rely on each other for support, the harmonies that i’ve heard with groups you just cannot do with a single voice…and its about friendship!! Thats the most important thing!!!
I would definitely choose a group. I don’t like thinking about the pressure that is focused just on you. With a group, you’re not alone and it would be more fun. That’s what I think anyway 😄
