A good song-writer can become famous without having a singing voice because writing songs is a different art from singing. There are several good songwriters who became famous without singing any of the songs written by them since the songs written are sung by singers who have good voices but cannot write their songs. A songwriter may acknowledge that they can’t sing, so they look for talented artists who need people to write songs for them because said artists don’t know how to write or have busy schedules. A contract is usually signed between the singer and songwriter where both parties agree that the music copyright belongs to the artist but words sung are copyrighted to the songwriter.
Acknowledging the writer of an artist’s music at their beginning or end helps viewers know about these songwriters through a music video. This helps clear the assumption that all rights of music belong to the artist and give recognition to the song-writer. Recognition by other singers who may need a good songwriter puts a songwriter in the position to be given more contracts with famous musicians. Song-writers can work with more musicians since they’re not tied down to a single artist or label. Working for several musicians increases recognition chances that bring fame to a good song-writer. Continuous practice helps perfect their song lyrics, which increases the chances they’ll get to be signed under famous record labels that could market a songwriter’s work to known celebrities for possible collaborations.
