"The singer has everything within him. The notes come out from his very life. They are not materials gathered from outside." ~Rabindranath Tagore
How do you find outstanding vocalists in a sea of tremendous talent?
I almost did not make a card for Vocals Week because I thought this was an impossible task.... I mean to be a Kpop vocalist, being a great singer is a prerequisite! Duh!
So I thought about it some more and decided two things:
1. They all have beautiful voices and have the skill to use their instrument to its fullest. 2. What makes someone vocally outstanding is completely subjective!
SO IF ALL THE SONGS AND ALL THE SINGERS ARE GREAT, WHAT SETS ONE APART FROM ANOTHER?
IT IS WHEN A SINGER'S VOICE PULLS YOU INTO THEIR WORLD AND WRAPS YOU TIGHT WITH FEELING.
Once I figured that out this became easy...these are all songs where the singers pulled me in and wrapped their voice around me..like a great hug...none of these are new.. they are more like old friends.
The harmony and emotion stir my heart..
The sweetness brings a smile..
The power, the growl, and the pure masculinity brings a shudder from down deep inside...
...touches my spirit
..makes me fall in love
Sends me soaring ...
...Totally melts me
(Note.. this is a fantastic cover of Eric Benet's song...the group is w.inds (J pop) - and it's one of those that YouTube and their company no longer cooperate, so you can't play the real videos anymore :0(
There are so many more I could share ... but that gets wearing... and we all have our own special songs...WHAT SONGS/SINGERS PULL YOU IN??
