Mikalyn Hay

Vocal Coach comments from Janine Le Clair

Mikalyn, you have a beautiful, breathy tone with which you connect so well. It was such a pleasure to listen to you!

I’d suggest to add some diversity, you work at developing the thicker tone qualities throughout your range as well. While doing this, you can focus on growing the strength of the song as it moves along, getting bigger in intensity and dynamics. Another small technical tip would be to lessen the ‘perfection or proper-ness’ or your articulation at times. Ex: ” I found what I’d been looking for” –
the delicate pronunciation technique you’re using airs on the side of classical and I feel you could experiment differently for this song. Great job!
