I was afraid of recording my own voice and hearing it back because of harsh self-criticism. My close friend Ken actually convinced me that I should record myself in order to improve. I remember he couldn’t sing that well but ever since 2016 when he started recording himself and really practicing his vocals to improve, his singing voice got tremendously better. (I still sing better harmonies than him ? ) I got over my fear and just started recording myself and this was the first Chinese song that I recorded.
