Vocal Coach comments from The VoiceCouncil Team

That was a wonderful performance! You played the keys very well, and chose a gorgeous tone. Good job on keeping good posture throughout – something keyboard players often struggle with. Your vocal tone was right on for that sweet soul vibe with a lovely twang/cry quality, and your use of backing vocals via an effects pedal (?) were well placed and effective. Our suggestion is that you spend a bit more energy singing your phrases through to the end before you allow breath to overtake your tone. By rounding off your words clearly and purposefully you will have more impact and energy. It is easy to relax diction when singing a song as smooth as this.
