Vocal Coach comments from Kathy Alexander
I really enjoyed the sound of your voice and I can hear your passion coming through. You chose a beautiful song that works for your voice. I really wanted you to sing more to me (i.e. the camera) so I could feel a connection with you. I wanted your movements and eye contact to show me that you really are this man, singing to his lover who is gone. I like the breathy quality that you bring into your voice – it adds intimacy and it is sexy too! A constant breathy sound can dry out the vocal cords, so I hope you practice those passages with a pure, ringing tone as an exercise. This way you can be sure you use the breathy sound only when you want to. Take a look at the position of your body at 0:07 when you sing “Vuelve” then compare it to 0:26 when you sing “Vuelve” the second time. What I see at 0:26, is good body alignment and a grounded posture. What I hear is better intonation and tone. You made a small correction to your own technique as you progressed through the song – well done!
