THE QUALITIES OF A GREAT SINGER!

Updated: Aug 21

Singers with a great voice have strong vocal control! Yes, it’s all about control, being able to express your emotional through your voice exactly the way you want to with complete control. This enables a singer to use vibrato in strategic places, hold a note solid (without vibrato), being able to articulate runs and riffs, singing with power or singing softly (or even breathy) in just the right places. The most noticeable factor with a great singer is complete control when singing.


Having great vocal control means you are able to sing and stay on pitch; it means controlling the pitch of every note accurately without going sharp (above the note) or flat (below the note). A singer with good vocal control is able to sing each note distinctly in a melody or even harmonies. The vocalist is able to leap to other notes accurately, not jumping too far or not far enough. They are able to hit the notes high or low. A great singer is able to move through the registers without a shift in their vocal sound, they are able to smoothly transition between the head, middle and chest voice. This requires diaphragm and breath support.


Every singer strives to sing with control and power in their voice, very few start out that way. It takes time and work to achieve your vocal goals. Listen to the amazing vocal control of Koko Higa (at age 13) singing “All I Ask” as she sings runs, riffs, vibrato, vocal power (chorus) and softness when needed for the emotional impact.


JOKE FOR THE DAY:

What's the difference between a banjo and an onion? Nobody cries when you chop up a banjo.
