Having to share air and personal space with others, while trapped in a giant metal container hurtling through a tunnel under the damn ground is awful enough. Add someone trying to do anything but sit quietly and get from point A to B in the least bothersome fashion possible, and you have the makings of a nightmare scenario for me.
And as it turns out, I'm not the only one who feels this way. Watch as "Vocal Bible" Brandy gets pretty much ignored as she subjects her fellow
Truth be told, I only managed a minute in before the cringe became too much and I had to switch it off. Y'all can do better! But after reading this helpful advice one fan left in the comments section of the video, I'm thinking the reception didn't get much warmer:
Hey Bran-Bran... if you do a re-do, here are some tips from a New Yorker perspective.
1) Turn around and sing to people so they know you are performing and not just rehearsing... or a loud ghetto bird disturbing everyone. (That is how we New Yorkers think... lol)
2) If you want to perform on a train and get a captive audience, ride an express train like the A or D and go from 59th to 125th where people are stuck and can't avoid you for 10 to 15 minutes. Perform, finish and get a response before the train stops. (All the people who heard you sing in this video got off the train and left when the train stopped before you turned around to ask.)
3) If you had done this on the A or D that went to Harlem (where we Black people live...), the whole TRAIN would have recognized you and you would probably have gotten a standing ovation. (Altho you might not want try that when you have security... lol)
Sage advice for us all.... that or DON'T SING WHERE PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY TRAPPED WITH YOU!
