Vocal Coach comments from Leontine Hass
Good work girls. You both have lovely voices and have done a great job with the harmonies. You also have a good feel for the lyrics, a nice gentle connection to the text and the emotions in the song.
I want you to consider the fact that you never really “go for it” vocally. You often flip into ‘falsetto’ or breathy singing. Even on the sections where you could get into some real belt or a stronger and more powerful vocal connection, you are under-singing.
The girl on the left – you have a strong voice. Use it! The girl on the right with plats – if you have a look at the video you are sticking your neck out and lifting your chin up a little. This makes it very difficult to tilt your thyroid cartilage and makes reaching high notes more difficult. It is more of a belt position but, rather than go into a stronger vocal connection, you resort to breathy singing.
To sum it up, you both need to use your voices more powerfully. You are capable of it so don’t shy away. I also feel the pace is dragging. Even slow songs need a sense of forward motion and rhythm. A very good effort though. Sing more, practice more and make another video!
We are two Girls (Julia(15) & Martina(14) who love to sing songs together. We were only singing songs on birthdays and weddings of relatives before we decided to record it and upload it to YouTube. We are happy about every single click and comment :)
