Get to know him a little... the more you know about your client, the easier it is to shoot... also, once you know more about your client, you'll find idea's pouring in...

Find the place where he/she is singing and ask permission to quietly observe and maybe take a few images from an unobtrusive place (or whatever they may let you do). Usually you can get the inspiration by watching the subject in action (peak gestures etc.).

Re: Suggestions Needed for shoot!

you can actually talk to the client himself/herself. I have management background and 10 years experience.. the main thing about every client is to find out what HE/SHE wants first and then propose your ideas after! You can create millions of ideas but none of them could be good for the client because that's not how he/she imagined it!
another thing when the client doesn't have a clue what he/she wants.. then is your prime time but singers are creative people.. they always have smth in their mind
