Designed to soothe dry throats & hoarse voice, but is also a great tool to PREVENT them.
HYDRATE YOUR THROAT with ENTERTAINERS SECRET Throat Spray!
Keeping your voice and vocal cords from getting dry is very important. Use this product for hydration when water just isn’t enough! WHY NOT JUST DRINK WATER? Drinking lots of water is good, a healthy and a smart idea for many reasons. Before extended periods of vocalizing one should drink a lot of water. But the water passes through the esophagus into the digestive system and must get into the circulatory system before it can be delivered to specific dehydrated areas such as the throat or larynx. Very little ingested water comes into direct contact with these dehydrated surfaces. Plus the body’s mucous-secreting glands often just can’t produce enough replacement moisturizing materials quickly enough to keep up with the increased need. Learn more at EntertainersSecret.com.

The vocal cords can dry out easily due to a variety of facts; including singing, talking, smoking, stress, drinking caffeine products, or alcoholic beverages, and using certain over-the-counter voice sprays and cold remedies. Your voice is a machine that must be oiled in order to run properly.
Many singers don’t realize how important it is to keep the vocal cords lubricated. You must drink plenty of water throughout the day in order to make this happen. But water generally takes at least 20 minutes before the vocal cords receive any lubrication. So I recommend at least 1/2 gallon of water daily to keep your machine oiled. There are still times when your throat is dry or hoarse, and you could use a little help. When your throat is dry, the quality of your voice will suffer; your voice will sound husky, with little resonance, and your upper range will shrink, causing unnecessary stress in your throat when you are trying to sing high notes.
Fortunately for us, there’s a fantastic product called Entertainer’s Secret Throat Relief. This product was formulated to moisturize, humidify, and lubricate the throat and larynx. It mimics the same natural lubricants of the throat for an instant moisturizing effect. It is the vocal spray of the stars, with users such as Jon BonJovi, Lyle Lovett, Jerry Lewis, Glen Close, Alan Campbell, Tom Petty, Debbie Gibson, Wynonna Judd, Pat Summerall, Brooke Shields, Barry Manilow, and many others.
Entertainer’s Secret Throat Relief was the result of the collaboration between KLI CORP and Richard Quisling, MD, a Nashville, ear, nose, and throat specialist. Their goal was to develop a product that could protect the voice, as well as restore and maintain voice quality and comfort without doing harm. After trying various combinations of different ingredients, Entertainer’s Secret Throat Relief was born. Entertainer’s Secret was designed to resemble the throats natural moisturizers, and to help restore vocal quality naturally, safely, and effectively. It is very soothing, and comforting to the throat, with a honey-apple flavor that is very pleasing to taste.
It is made up of Sodium Carboxycellulose, Aloe Vera Gel, and Glycerin, all of which resemble a different type of mucus (globular, strand, and sheet). Another major fact that separates this throat spray from others is that it does not contain any numbing anesthetics, alcohol, antiseptics, a nalgesics, antihistamines, decongestants, or anti-inflammatory agents. Any throat sprays that contain any of the above will dry out your throat, and a dry throat is an unhappy throat. Anything that numbs your throat only masks the problem. If you try to sing when your throat is sore, by numbing the pain, you risk the chance of permanently damaging your voice. Just because you temporarily don’t feel any pain, doesn’t mean you aren’t hurting your throat!” Entertainer’s Secret does exactly what a throat spray should: Soothe the voice, without drying or numbing the throat.
It can be sprayed directly into the throat or sinus passages. It adjusts the thickness and flow of the mucus in the sinuses and the passageways of the throat. The nose and throat must maintain moisture in order to moisturize incoming air. The sinus passages are lined with tiny hairs, called cilia. Cilia act as tiny filters, protecting the lungs by continually flowing back and forth to remove unwanted particles such as dust, smoke and other pollutants. If the sinuses are dry or congested, the natural flow of cilia is halted. Spraying Entertainer’s Secret into the sinuses helps to re-establish the flow of the cilia by moisturizing the sinus passages. Entertainer’s Secret is like hand moisturizing lotion for the sinuses and voice.
Entertainer’s Secret is the spray coaches recommend to students. You will find it very useful when I am singing in a venue filled with tobacco smoke. Smoke will dry out your throat and Entertainer’s Secret will help to re-moisturize your voice in a smoke filled environment. Personally, I use a technique called mist-inhaling, which I describe in more detail in my book RAISE YOUR VOICE. Basically, as you spray Entertainer’s Secret into your mouth, slightly inhale into your lungs. By inhaling as you spray, you coat and moisturize the vocal cords. The moist air must pass between the vocal cords before it enters the lungs. From my experience with this product, I guarantee it will make a difference in the quality of your singing voice, and help to maintain your vocal health for a long-lived vocal career!
