Vocal Coach comments from Janine Le Clair

Its certainly obvious you enjoy this style and are in your element. And this song choice shows off upper range nicely! I would love you to hang on to the ‘s’ of “new”, “blues” and , and ‘k’ of “York” – meaning, to keep the mic up longer so we hear these vocalized consonants. Also, be aware of the energy/power in your long high notes being held, for example the last note of the song, where you accidentally waver the pitch to sharp.
I suggest doing repetitive pitch exercises on long notes to help keep your pitch on target for future long notes, as well as exercises where you increase volume on one pitch
without deviating the pitch. Great job!
