Comments for I Won't Sleep Tonight
but I'm sure that I know what I like. So Sharon: I like the song and the way you sing it!!!
There are several fine female composers and singers here, not just one. How to help without offending someone, or sounding bossy or cutting is always taking a chance, but worth it here because of the obvious tonal beauty, ability, development, and talent, Sharon amply demonstrates. Over the years, a keen sense of the vocalization is developed extending the effective singing years by eliminating strain through developing good posture, support, projection, and tonal production. The strenuous sound on stressed notes is something to look at, for the singer to decide whether or not to change. I only make suggestions about things like that. Others only offer compliments, but no timely constructive insight. I suppose that's easier, but the successful working musician with decades at it has to be honest as part of musicianship that is indispensable in giving something back to other aspiring artists
Protecting voices from vocal strain starts with noticing changes in tone from any source that pulls the voice off pitch, or makes harshness, and can be heard as shouting lyrics instead of singing them, not necessary with good sound equipment. It's important for a singer to have some voice left at the end of the set, and the next day, week, month, year, career. So choosing the right key and accompaniment, Vocal coach, mike and shields, mix, settings, and monitors all play a part. Knowing how to get the sound without damage is an art developed the more we sing in a way that works personally. Only a few can sing constantly straining the voice as Pavarotti did when he discovered how to get that huge tone when he had a cold
The principles work across the spectrum for all styles of vocalization. To last decades like Tony Bennett, and Smokey Robinson have, for example, is a goal for any singer to aim for, regardless of genre.
