Vocal Coach comments from Jaime Vendera
Mmm, mmm, mmm what soul! Your tone was so smooth and rich and I was watched you sitting there singing, I could tell you had your skills down so well that it was second nature. Both your breathing and support were spot on; no reaching for notes or gasping for breaths with a heaving chest. All relaxed and easy as you glided from note to note with this silky, yet smoky tone. Love the blues grit towards the end too, but I must admit, you’re teasing me with just that little bit if it. If I had a request, it would be that you play around with a bit more of that grit and even slip in a bit more range on the higher AND the lower end of your voice to make it even more your own. I can just hear it in your voice, can hear these jazz runs go lower and higher than what you presented in this song. Ha-ha, you’re probably saying, “yeah, Jaime, I do that in every other song…” That’s good because I KNOW you can do it.
Why I chose Motolani as a Finalist
I really appreciated the sense of soul Motolani brings to her music so I am recommending her to move forward in the VoiceCouncil competition.
My name is Motolani and I am a soul/jazz singer/songwriter. I have been in a gospel choir for a few years. Music for me has always been a form of an inner expression. I enjoy harmonies and vocal arrangement.
Currently I am working on my own material and aim to share it with the world in the near future
