Rebecca Moore, better known as Rebecca Vocal Athlete, is a vocal coach, mentor, singer, songwriter, YouTuber and entertainer with more than 20 years of experience within the music industry. She provides ongoing professional training in reputable vocal techniques, methodologies, vocal anatomy, physiology, and voice research. Over the years, Rebecca has cultivated a massive social media following with her videos, particularly on YouTube. Her 2018 album “Black and White Sunset” is currently available on Spotify and iTunes, as is her 2020 EP “Golden Daffodils”.
Based in England, Rebecca’s fascination with music started very young; her father recalls her dancing in front of the TV when she was 2 years old. As a child, she quickly fell in love with voice, sound, music, and even doing impressions. This soon evolved into a love for songwriting and all of the ways “we express ourselves”.
Rebecca speaks candidly about her struggle with depression and anxiety over the years, and the impact negative self talk can have on our bodies. She opens up about the operation she had in 2016 to remove a non-cancerous tumor, involving the removal of one of her ovaries, and shares that the recovery afterwards was “the worst” as she wasn’t able to walk for a while. However, it was also during this time that Rebecca delved into self-improvement, meditation, yoga, and a journey to expand her platform on YouTube. With 1.14 million subscribers, Rebecca’s reach continues to grow as she helps people all over the world learn about their voices and gain confidence in their art.
