Confidence is so important in all walks of life. It can mean the difference between standing up for yourself or letting others take the lead; communicating effectively or never getting your point across.

It’s never too early to start encouraging children to believe in themselves, and performing on a stage, though scary at times, can be the first step to forming self-assured, positive personalities.

Take a look at these singing sensations who have formed successful careers after starting out on the stage at a young age. Without that early start, who knows where they would be now?
