"To know oneself, is above all, to know what one can sing!" (or something of that nature!). At the start of a new year, take some time to identify the type of singer you are. Here are some singer types, along with song suggestions, to help you have the karaoke of your life!
You’ve been described as a loud mouth and the sheer power in your voice force others to take note. You’ll choose pop, broadway musicals and Disney over country or jazz any day. You combine your chest and head voice with ease to create a pleasant-sounding yell.
The Raspy Rocker
Your hoarse voice isn’t reserved for just after you wake up. The scratchy sounds that you emit charm and mesmerize your listeners. A voice like yours is few and far between and while singers can (dangerously) imitate the sound, there’s nothing like the real thing!
The Vibrato Vocalist
Your vocal chords just can’t help playing catch with volume and pitch and you enjoy that extra special ending in your song rendition. A tip from the experts: take care not not to force vibrato, it can can strain your voice and can leave your karaoke rendition seeming fake.
The One-Note Wonder
You can easily switch from shrilling like a teenie-bopper who's just spotted Justin Bieber and a deep-gut based scream of a rocker. Simply put, you hit the highs and lows without struggling like an over-hopeful The Voice contestant. You've got range (fancy lingo for the number of notes you hit). An added skill, you can hold your breath for long periods of time making scaling up and down that much more impressive.
You can’t help busting a move when the time comes. You believe the show is as important as the music and you're ready to shimmy and shake at the first note.
