Hum, sing do-re-mi, do some lip trills, and try some tongue twisters for about 10 minutes before you jump into singing R&B.<ref>https://ift.tt/2ZVzbBL>

#Sing off of the beat. In typical songs, lyrics and phrases are sung on the beat. In R&B, sing with the beat of the instruments as well as off-beat. When you first start singing, don’t come in with your voice right away. Let the instruments play a couple of notes, and then come in.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_ATwl2uvfA&feature=youtu.be&t=37</ref>

#Practice improvising with your vocals. Singing rhythm and blues includes a lot of scatting, when you sing nonsensical words, and riffing, when you repeat a chord over and over with your voice. Listen to instrumental music and practice creating your own melodies to go along with it. Keep the music in mind, but don’t feel boxed in by what you are hearing.<ref>https://ift.tt/2AIcBRj>

#Use vocal inflections to convey emotions while you sing. When we talk, we use our tone of voice to portray excitement, sadness, and confusion.
