Mariah Carey -Vocal Profile/ Range

mariah carey singing
Vocal Type: Lyric Soprano (considers herself an alto)
Vocal Range: 5 octaves 2 notes and a semi-tone . E2- G#7
Whistle register: Yes
Longest Note: 20 seconds - 'Lead The Way'
Vocal Pluses: Vocal dynamics are second to none: able to go from a crystal clear, high octave belt to an airy whisper within the space of a word. Has gorgeous low and high notes that are complimented by an uncanny ability to pitch an exact note without the need of vocal runs. When Vocal runs are utilised by Mariah Carey they are incredibly accurate and always sympathetic to the song's key signature, tempo and style, thus giving her the moniker the "Queen of melisma". It's a skill that can be utilised in each of the registers, as well as travelling through them. Technically a brilliant singer.

Mariah Carey's low range is dark and heavy. The midrange can either be thick and slightly nasal- See the Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel album- or airy and light, almost as if whispering. The belting voice is elastic and bright, with the lower half being more resonant- see Without you to compare the low and higer part of the belting register. As Mariah Carey's voice ascends the belting range, up into the fifth octave, its timbre begins to thin, as it's mixed with the head voice, but it remains bright and clear throughout.

The head voice and whistle register are easily accessible and can both have their timbre modified depending on what is artistically called for; being either fuller and piercing or softer and airier. As well as being able to pitch notes with incredible accuracy in the whistle register, Mariah Carey is capable of articulating words- see Bliss- and singing within the register for long periods of time without vocal fatigue-see Angels Cry Interlude.

Vocal Negatives: As Mariah Carey has aged the higher belted notes- above a C5- have become coarser and harder to maintain for extended periods of time. The lower notes are also pushed, meaning an unhealthy technique is used to reach them.

  1. There are some that claim she has hit a G2 and E2, in these clips. Share your thoughts. I am a Mariah fan but not to good identifying notes. Are these truly lower notes? or are they not properly identified?

  2. I think she has sung a G2 but I'm not going to buy an E2 until I've heard it clearly and not in "unison"

  3. fails to convey an emotional connection to songs is so wrong..

  4. Sadly, her voice is now damaged and there's no way she's retained her 5 octave range. I saw her first performance of Hero on x-factor and she was worse than terrible. Suspiciously, I can't find this performance on youtube (however her second performance is there, which wasn't quite as weak).

  5. I definitely think you need to mention her ability to use the Whistle Register. She can access it without using vocal runs, and she can go insanely high.

    ReplyDelete
  6. @lewnatic: That is a really good point. Will definitely be adding that! Thanks!

  7. Vocal negative: more runs than a bout of bad food poisoning :OD - but I know that's a question of taste!

  8. in my opinion shes the best pop singer in history - mind you i mean in mainstream music not in all the world- unlike beyonce and christina her voice is softer and so much more pleasurable to listen to
    her technique is incredible and she is so in control of her whistle register

    ReplyDelete
  9. I totally agree with the comment above. Mariah is a legendary singer. And as for her range being damaged thats is complete nonsense, you only need to youtube her live performances of MC2U to hear her full range and power in all its incredible glory. Sorry but MC is and always will be 'the' ultimate vocal diva! Stuey

  10. I am a huge - more than huge - fan of Mariah Carey. Own multiple albums and listen to many of her songs daily. But to say that the same voice from the 90's is still the same voice in 2011 is nonsense. She's completely changed her style and adapted to Hip-hop, and since her come back with the "Eman. of Mimi" I have not really heard much of her past voice. Sure, she can still go high - like nobody in the business - but her 2 last albums clearly show a huge difference in what she can currently do.

  11. Great singer! But less Chardonnay for this lady. She drinks to much Chardonnay and like a voice like hers she should preserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. haha her vocal runs are no where near as bad as xtinas or beyonce's..... they just abuse melissma

    ReplyDelete
  13. this is perhaps why her voice improved so while she was pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Voice teachers cannot seem to classify Mariah's voice into anything. You can classify her as a contralto, mezzo soprano, or coloratura soprano, but her voice has certain qualities that make it quite impossible to be placed in any voice classification. She considers her voice though as an alto. 

    ReplyDelete
  15. Are you gonna change the G2 to an E2 since that amazing video surfaced?

    ReplyDelete
  16. She's all 3! Soprano, Mezzo-soprano and Contralto :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. she is one of the few singers that possess a whistle register, even though I think it is hard for her to hold now, she still has it

    ReplyDelete
  18. Mariah Carey has one of the best voices of all time!. She is a legend in her own right and if it wasn't for her we wouldn't have heard of Christina, Rihanna or Beyonce as she inspired them to sing and they are all Mariah fans. This women has sold over 200 million records in the last 20 years and has scored more number ones than Elvis Presley!. Her vocal range is tremendous and posses the ability to enter her whistle register when she wishes which is a signature move for her. I'd say that this women is unstoppable and her voice has changed but wouldn't yours if you had been belting it out for over 2 decades.  

    ReplyDelete
  19. Mariah is the songbird supreme! She has influenced a generation of singers, and her use of melisma is unmatched. All the singers that try to do it, abuse it and that is why it sounds terrible, which is why critics blame Mariah. Mariah knows how to do it right. I never struggled to understand what she was saying, or comprehend the lyric. She is always clear in her use and in her runs. Every note change, every whistle adds to her songs. I don't think she lacks an emotional connectivity to her material, but everyone has their opinion. She brought opera and octave discussions to pop music. No one talked much about sheer ability before her arrival. mariah is 1/2 talent and soul 1/2 technique. I know not everyone agrees but she is a phenomenal talent.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Mariah has a 5.5 range & peaks at 5.7 on Butterfly. Her voice & range are absolutely beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What has honestly happened to her voice? Patti LaBelle still sounds incredible, so it can't be age... Mariah's only 41?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Mariah Carey can definately sing an F2, here at between aprrox 0:20 and 0:24:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wX0ftbwMsw0 

    Also she can reportedly sing up to a C8. I can't find any recordings but it sounds very plausible to me.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I wish her and Walter Afanasieff would make some musical magic again..

    ReplyDelete
  24. because her voice isn't powerful at all.

    ReplyDelete
  25. There is no way that Mariah Carey is an Alto. She must be a Soprano. Alto's cannot go up to a G#7. It's just not possible!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hey Emily, I was just talking about this today! Mariah calls herself a contralto- which is why I labelled has as that initally- but she is more likely a Soprano with contralto capabilities. Will be changing that! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Her voice has gotten weaker along the years, no doubt, due to the amazing belting and the touring earlier in her career. Non stop touring places a strain on the voice, and with her being the perfectionist she is, I think she tries to give a vocally perfect performance.Burdened even more, because her songs aren't all that easy to sing either. Remember Emotion and Vision of Love? Lol. Sometimes I wish she'd try to eschew the perfection and just let herself go, as to add emotional intensity to the song. She tends to mime a lot, and not very convincingly. But I guess I can't complain. Most of the time artists tend to mime to prevent overusing their voice. Celine does it often as well, but it's less noticeable.

    I still think she has it though. I remember a post you wrote showing her singing Fly Like a Bird in Montreal. One word. Amazing. 

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yeah. Her voice lacks the thickness and heaviness of a contralto. Her voice also sounds pushed and unnatural on lower notes.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks, i was just really surprised. I remember Mariah calling  herself that. I even asked some of my friends their opinion. 5 octaves just didn't seem possible for an alto.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Because of the fragile nature of mariah's voice. She was born with vocal nodules, meaning that she had to be very careful as a singer. I think this is where her perfect technique comes in. Because she knows she is in more danger than the average person to lose her voice entirely if she slips up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Part of it is due to age. Part of it is due to the voice itself. Patti's voice has decline with age, I assure you. Mariah has what is termed a lyric voice. Her voice is lighter and brighter, due to her vocal cords being thinner. Patti on the other hand, has a more dramatic voice, and thus, thicker vocal cords. Lyric voices have a higher chance of developing vocal nodules, especially when the voice is under the strain developed by belting, which Mariah has done since the beginning of her career. Nodules form when vocal cords are constantly in forceful contact. And due to the thinner nature of her vocal cords, the forceful contact that occurs when she belts worsens the damage.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Her vocal range spans exactly 5 ovtaces (G#2-G#7) and she is a SOPRANO!

    ReplyDelete
  33. She is rare kind of soprano called sfogato soprano. Sfogato sopranos have a 
    ability to sing in the soprano tessitura as well as in the contralto tessitura with great ease.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow, after reading these comments, I must admit one thing, Mariah Carey is a living legend! She created these kind of singing skills and being the one and only who can do what she has created. All of my respect is on her and I just wish people are more aware of the real artist is as people nowaday are strayed from even recognising Mariah by this GaGa thing. May God bless Mariah.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I Believe she considers herself to be an Alto, not a Contralto. Alto in the choral sense which for the most part is just another word for Mezzo Soprano. She had taken Choir when in school and must have been placed in the Alto section due to her husky voice and just continued to consider herself an Alto ever since. However she is obviously a Soprano. A rare Soprano Sfogato. They are incredible Sopranos with incredible range capable of singing easily from the Contralto tessitura all the way up to the Soprano Tessitura. Plus her Nodules might help her voice reach those lower contralto notes due to their natural effect (being born with them or developing them at a young age) giving her a deeper husky voice. However her natural Sfogato voice allows her to easily reach those Eb6's and above. Overall an amazing Vocalist with near perfect technique. Her technique can be shaky and questionable at times (on occasion lowering the larynx when going for her deepest notes) but is the greatest at upper mixed belts and head voice. However it is hard to evaluate her voice currently as she tends to lip sync.

  36. Thanks for the intelligent comment! You are right about the alto thing, will change that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. DivaDevotee can you please tell me 

    1-what is the different between Whitney and Mariah's technique and which is healthier?

    2-is mixing and singing in the mask the same thing? 

    3-what is "the ring"?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know your comment was directed towards DivaDevotee but this is what my vocal coach taught me about those terms. Mixing and singing in the mask are not the same thing but they can go hand in hand. Singing in the mask is attaining a good resonance in the face and nose allowing a greater more healthy "resonant" sound to appear. Through this the "ring" can be achieved.The ringing by my understanding (I am self taught!) is the ultimate sound achieved through great resonance though I may be wrong. Mixing is achieving a good ratio of Head voice and chest voice to produce a high note that sounds belted but definitely has a lighter and higher capability to it. This allows singers to belt their highest note. Its best to resonate in the forehead when mixing because resonating in the mask has its limits. The difference between Mariahs and Whitneys techniques goes as is: Mariah generally has perfect technique through resonating in the forehead and keeping her larynx neutral at all times. She Supports all of her notes well and is capable of perfect breath control. Whitney however has a free larynx condition which causes it to rise and lower dramatically when singing. Whitney also resonates in the mask which allows her to achieve "the ring" when singing but her upper belts become thin. They are both excellent performers and vocalists but the better technique goes to Mariah. Mariah was trained at a very young age and  has near perfection in her singing. Whitneys high larynx is a really bad technique which can cause strain and damage to appear. Both overall have great technique though.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Mariah used to have alot more power than she does now, and her tessitura has gotten much higher. Her pronunciation of words have changed, her belts have gotten thinner and scratchier, sometimes they sound like screaming. Her melismas are much less smooth than they used to be, and she kind of misses notes now, though this may be stylistically done. Her voice has acquired a breathy tone, which dissipates as she belts.

    ReplyDelete
  40. her vocal dynamics are what make her one of the best female mainstream singers in history 
    i can't believe how skilled she is and how she can hit such low notes and hit whistle notes 
    i guess its something you really are born with 

    shes a rare talent and honestly the only thing holding her back is her horrible music - she needs to get some new songwriters

    ReplyDelete
  41. Why is she a lyric?  I thought she was a dramatic coluratora, due to her power in the lower notes, and agility

    ReplyDelete
  42. Completely wrong.
    Check out Vision of Love.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I believe your right cause Mariah's technique give her an amazing belts 
    especially considering that she strains on C5 when belting with chest voice alone.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Her voice is waaaay to light (we are talking about heaviness/weight) to be a dramatic, well, anything. Therefore, she has to be a lyric or maybe a spinto, but for sure not a dramatic. And it's not coluratora but coloratura, from latin 'colorare'.

    ReplyDelete
  45. She is not a sfogato ANYTHING....there are requirements for the sfogato voice that Mariah just DOESN'T have. The sfogato voice has a mezzo quality in the middle and a true contralto sound in the lower register, something Mariah lacks. Mariah's voice is LIGHT and has the color of a soprano. The sfogato can sing all roles written for the female voice. Mariah has not displayed that at all. You people need to stop misapplying operatic terminology when it's clear you have no understanding about them.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Uh, no. You can't have the "ring" and have a high larynx/thin belts. Sorry, that's not the way it works.

    Both the mask and forehead are examples of placing the sound forward. There's no "better way", as long as the sound is properly placed.

    The best mix are the ones that are most coordinated. It doesn't matter whether the vibrations are felt in the mask or forehead, just as long as they're not improperly balanced or back in the throat.

    And Whitney's control of her larynx was spectacular. Her sound was ALWAYS open, well-enunciated, stunning clarity and resonance all the way to her top.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I never said that the ring could be achieved with a free larynx. Whitney HAS demonstrated great control of her larynx position but there have been many times I have seen in particular (after her drug abuse) that her belting power would become strained and her larynx would rise. 

    ReplyDelete
  48. Then what would you consider her? With how powerful she is throughout her entire five ovtave range I would never consider her a lyric soprano.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Mariah doesn't really have that much power in the lower register, ease yes but she is not really strong down there. (For power in the lower register see Vanessa Amorosi, Stevie Nicks, Nikka Costa, etc.)
    In her prime you can see performances of her pulling her larnyx down to hit just an Eb3. Overall though she is good at hitting low notes (above C3 anything below that she usually pulls down on her larynx a good bit)
    She's just a lyric with a lower extension.
    Wonderful vocalist regardless though.

    ReplyDelete
  50. those are common traits found in sfogato sopranos but they are not required. 

    ReplyDelete
  51. The same thing can be said for Mariah, and many other singers, in their later years.

    ReplyDelete
  52. You said "Whitney also resonates in the mask which allows her to achieve "the ring" when singing but her upper belts become thin."

    That is not true. Whitney had probably the most balanced scale of all the divas in her belts.

    The high larynx thing can be said for Mariah, and many other singers, whether in their later years, or certain periods. There have been many times where Mariah's belts have been strained. So for you to sit here and claim that Mariah keeps her larynx neutral at all times (when that is not the case) only makes you look bias.

    ReplyDelete
  53. "Vocal dynamics are seconds to none" and "low and high notes that are complimented with an uncanny ability to pitch ...etc" what does that mean? and does "as well as being able to pitch notes with incredibly accuracy in the whistle register" mean that she can the same notes as the studio with going sharp or flat? because she always go flat on the C7 in "emotions" and she did go sharp in a couple of "emotions" performance and the "i wanna know what love is" on the x faxtor?

  60. DIVA im curious just how many registers does she have 
    she has a whistle register and a whisper register what else

    ReplyDelete
  61. There's no such thing as whisper register lmao.
    That's just a phrase Mariah coined for her airy singing manner (most of which is falsetto or she is just whistling at a quieter pitch and softer so that the air escaping can be heard more easily)
    She has a lower register, an upper chest register, falsetto (she rarely uses headvoice) and whistle register. Same registers as everyone else.
    Everyone has these registers or can access them. 

    ReplyDelete
  62. oh ok i thought for women it was considered head voice and falsetto is only a term for male singers 

    ReplyDelete
  63. Women have the capacity to use falsetto just like some men have the capacity to use head voice. Not everyone though for both cases.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't think she is a soprano at all. Her head voice is weak as fk and not impressive. Leona Lewis or Nicole Scherzinger have way better head voices.

    ReplyDelete
  65. She's not a lyric soprano...lyric sopranos cannot to the second octave!!! The lowest is high third octave. Mariah is a rare type of soprano called sfogato soprano who is able to have dramatic contralto abilities as well as coloratura soprano abilities. Which is AWSEOME!!!!:D

    ReplyDelete
  66. You must be kidding, Leona doesn't use head voice but falsetto. Mariah actually uses both. And you clearly have no idea about voice types if you think that just because she doesn't use head voice a lot she's not a soprano!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I never said Mariah wasn't a soprano because she didn't use head voice a lot. Where did you get that? Lol

    I know Mariah can sing in head voice and falsetto. And actually Leona does use head voice. I've heard her sing in falsetto and also in head voice. That isn't hard to believe as most women should be able to access their head voice.

    You're putting words into my mouth without even fully comprehending my comment.

    ReplyDelete
  68. She is NOT a soprano. Her tessitura is way too low to be a soprano. She is correct that she is an alto. When she reaches her belting range, that's considered the tessitura for true sopranos. 

    In this case, she's just the alto that could.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ok, so you don't think she's a soprano but you don't say she's not? And how Leona's head voice is better than Mariah's?

    ReplyDelete
  70. I meant you think she's NOT a soprano but you don't say she's not? 

    ReplyDelete
  71. Her tessitura is was too high to be a contralto. Listen to some belts by real contraltos like Toni Braxton, Etta James, Tina Turner or Annie Lennox. Their voices are much heavier, darker than Mariah's whose belts are bright and light.

    ReplyDelete
  72. shes a dramatic coloratura soprano

    ReplyDelete
  73. Patrick Castillo199411 May 2012 18:32

    i would say that she is a Coloratura Mezzo-Soprano? It is a voice type, and it seems to match her voice.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Yes I do agree that she could be coloratura mezzo soprano. Her tessitura matches a coloratura mezzo. However she has really high chances of being a sfogato soprano and diva devotee i think there is NO way she could be lyric soprano! Lyric sopranos don't have such big ranges...I think u should change her voice type..it's probably coloratura mezzo,coloratura soprano or sfogato soprano

    ReplyDelete
  75. Her Tessitura is surprisingly high even though her capacity for low notes is impressive. She can go down to a B2 but her control in that area is weak and her lows are breathy. Her Upper range and Headvoice is where her voice truly shines. It becomes very bright and resonant, clear, and powerful and her ease and control there is a true testament of her status as a Soprano. She is a Soprano with a great lower extension due to a combination of great training and perhaps her vocal nodules.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Well first of all, alto is a vocal range it's anything from baritone to mezzoish and it does not describe voice timbre and quality ...I think Mariah Carey considers herself an alto because in choir , she was probably placed in alto 1 or something because of her rich low-mid quality. Alto 1s are just mezzo sopranos with a slightly darker tone . Alto 2s are where u find either very low mezzos or actual contraltos. So basically, Mariah means she's a mezzo. She's just most comfortable in mid range and is able to go low because she is a mezzo. The reason why she may be coloratura mezzo is because she can hit those crazy high notes.

    ReplyDelete
  77. ok..we all satisfied to her rediculous and awesome voice...IS SHE WORKING FOR A NEW ALBUM???

    ReplyDelete
  78. No alto are really called a contralto witch is the lowest female vocal .thin its sparano thn its mezzo sparano. contraltos sing f3- f5 sparanos sing c4,-c6 ,mezzo sparano.sing a3-a5 &males are tenor ,baritone &bass tenors sing c3,-c5 ,baritones sing f2,-f4 bass e2,-e4

    ReplyDelete
  79. Mariah sing all those from.alto -mezz sprano

    ReplyDelete
  80. @anonymous no alto is just a range not a voice type. It does not describe vocal weight or timbre. In choir,usually altos are low mezzos . True Contraltos can be found in alto 2. So what Mean is Mariah probably meant mezzo soprano not contralto u know...

    ReplyDelete
  81. Mariah said that:
    "I have nodules on my vocal cords. My mother says I've had them since I was a kid. That's why I have the high register and the belting register and I can still be husky. 
    I don't get it can someone explain it to me

    ReplyDelete
  82. Nodules can have several effect but the most prominent being a reduction in vocal stamina, missing notes, a change in texture, and a darker or "Huskier" tone. When you listen to Mariah's speaking voice it sounds very airy and raspy in texture, dark in color, almost tiring. However her singing voice is very light, bright, and full. Her natural voice is very bright, however due to her Nodules she has a very low raspy "Husky" voice. So im not exactly sure if the nodules add on to her range but they are the reason her voice sounds husky but she is still has a technically "Bright" singing voice.

    Her note in lead the way seems to be shorter than the note in we belong together. Lead the way is around 18 seconds while We Belong Together seems to be at least 20.

    1. Not exactly. U can think of nodules as callouses and polyps as blisters. But both of them are usually caused by vocal abuse...

    If you listen to her natural voice , you can actually see how comfortable she is in her low range .
    Her voice is naturally low , I'd definitely consider her as a Contralto .
    She's just an amazing technically brilliant singer, with a great grasp of her voice , that's why she can sing with such an incredible vocal range !

    ReplyDelete
  89. Ehhh I wouldn't say that. She struggles most in her lower register. Although it is supported (most of the time at least) it is still very airy. A contralto would be able to hit the lows very solid and rounded. Her voice rings the most in the head and belting register and her capacity for head voice (being able to go anywhere from an airy falsetto to an Operatic Head voice to a Piercing whistle) definitely shows a stronger tessitura in the Soprano range rather than Contralto. Her natural voice is low because of her vocal nodules that she was born with. She has slipped up and lost control of her voice a few times when singing low (like in her performance of "You and I") however I have not yet seen her fail a belt or Head note. She is really a Soprano with a great lower extension to her voice, possibly given to her by her nodules.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Are you joking ? XD
    She has slipped up and lost control in the belt and head notes as much as she did in the low register ( Look at the performance for Obama , when she sang hero . )

    ReplyDelete
  91. Okay? You got one example. That definitely shows that she has messed up upper belting a lot. I never said she never has I just said that I have not seen her mess up yet. If you had more examples than you would be more credible.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Also what are you speaking about? Her performance at the inauguration ball was almost flawless. She changed the vocals a bit but she didn't mess up anything.

    ReplyDelete
  93. this is to whoever reads this... mariah's lower range is dense and dark its not strong its more airy as said but strong when she uses her vibrato, she is more of a contralto when she started out. listening to her early tracks, and watching many years of her wide performances, u can see that she was def more comfortable singing mid-range tones then her notes above c5 but she was still able to hit them and SUBSTAIN THEM. no one in western music can sing like her. so taken that into granted i would call her a dramatic coloratura, or a soprano sfogato. she can sing dark (stevie wonder you and i performance) and she can hold light with such power (miss you most at christmas time)

    ReplyDelete
  94. her voice is not at all light in her notes above c5, its able to use vibrato in her head voices, which makes it darker, and it's not at all light. and even if u wanna argue that fact. not every dramatic coloratura is just as heavy. dont compare her to maria callas because thats opera.

    ReplyDelete
  95. The color of a persons voice does not define their vocal type- it just merely describes the color of the singers tone. Mariah's capacity for low notes is incredible for a Soprano but her comfort there is lacking. She becomes shaky, her larynx begins to lower, and she releases too much air hence the incredibly breathy sound. However Head Voice and Whistle registers are true to her status as a Soprano due to her incredible ease and breath control in those areas. She has the most creative control over those areas as well being able to change the vocal textures and colors of them however in her lower range she is stuck with that raspy husky "Dark" tone. From the beginning of her career she was always a Soprano.

  96. I agree, everything about her voice, even up to this day screams soprano, the nodules have helped keep her husky contralto depths. But yes her upper registers are where the magic really happens sonically!

  97. Listen , Mariah is my FAVORITE singer , but I can't deny she has messed up upper belting a lot !I have few more examples ..
    But I want to show you something before .

    Look at this performance , and see how comfortable she is in her low register .... She had some problems with hitting the high notes so she changed the vocals a bit to make it easier for her ...
    That's what I love about mariah , she has the ability to sing in all - low , mid , and high registers , and feel comfortable .

    ReplyDelete
  99. Emotions has barely any low notes in it... and I would say her struggle is due to the cold climate and high altitude. You also always have to involve environment in an evaluation if the performer is in a harsh one. And She hit all of the Whistle notes find. The only issues she had with that performance where her belts which sounded a bit coarser. And if I recall correctly she had a live concert in Morroco and she sang Perfectly. Show me a performance where she has ease in the lower register. I Swear you will not find one. You can find one where she sings in it. But its impossible to find one where her lows are easy, rounded, and solid.

  102. Really, Mariah is a remarkable singer. I wouldn't consider her any real voice part, given the ease she seems to have with her lower register as well as the upper register. It almost makes determining a voice type impossible, as well as pointless and stupid to argue about it *cough cough*, seeing as she sings pop and not classical music. While she pushes a little for those very lowest notes, she still has remarkable control and ease down to about C3 (which would be a bitch for anyone who wasn't at least a low mezzo), and thanks to nodules can ascend to ridiculous heights. Truly fantastic, and an inspiration, along with Whitney and Celine for anyone who has ever wanted to sing popular music but didn't want to let go of their musicality to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  103. She is a contralto I have a similar range to her, and her voicee is so-called deteriorating because she kept singing outside her range using the wrong technique even she said it!! Just listen to her belt for example is doesn't have that light almost silky sound that sopranos have. case closed!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Everyone's vocal colors and textures are different. There are Soprano's that have dark voices (dramatic). Mariah's voice is very light and Bright in the belting register and her technique is actually really good. She was trained by her mother who was an Opera singer after all.

  105. @Brain most of them people in this forum don't even wanna try to understand what you trying to tell them...I just have one problem. And that is why did Whitney Houston get the title as The Voice when clearly she only had the most powerful voice ever. And Mariah has more flexibility, high,etc...She has much more 2 over vocally then Whitney had. Mariah would be able to pull of any Whitney song. But not the other way. So why was the title as the voice been given 2 whitney. It doesn't make sense. Whitney's voice was awesome and I love her to bit even to this day. But still shouldn't that title have gone 2 the person the has more 2 offer to the world vocally ? Please I would like to know what's you have to think about it.

  108. Can anyone dispel my doubts? On Lady Gaga's profile it's denied that she has a range of 4 octaves and 1 note since, according to the author, "screams and exlamations" don't count. Well, I'm not a professional but in my opinion in the video above Mariah "screams" just like Gaga does. Therefore, I don't quite understand why Gaga's screams don't count while Mariah's do :) Honestly, I'm just a curious Gaga's fan; don't treat me like a troll or a complete ignorant :)) And forgive me my English, I'm not a native...

    ReplyDelete
  109. If you listen carefully to Lady gaga and then Mariah you would hear that Mariah almost never grunts, yells, or screams. Gaga although known for pretty good vocals have done all three numerous times. Mariah belts using a high nasal resonance technique and mixes her voice. Gaga for the most part belst or yells chest dominant and doesnt always mix.

  110. My only criticism of Mrs. Cannon is that, aside from lacking any genuine soul (which of course is subjective and only really applicable to the ears people who enjoy and know soul and gospel music), her voice isn't well connected AND the tone, to me, in the lower and middle sounds scratchy (always...since day one). Whereas I love gravelly tones like Gladys Knight and Etta James, I feel like there was never any space in any notes when they sang, but Mariah seems to always have spaces within single notes or between them. Other than that, she strains like any other pop singer, when she sings live, but aside from a single period in her career, it was never too unpleasant. She is def one of the best and greatest singers alive...a living LEGEND! Second only to the late Whitney Houston.

  111. Not everyone can use head voice
    ? I'm pretty sure everyone has that, but not necessarily whistle register--or rather, the ability to access it; or falsetto, because it can be a pain to use properly.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I realie this is incredibly old to respond to, but why, exactly. Alto, soprano--it mostly refers to vocal weight, or tessitura and comfort level, so why couldn't a singer be an alto and have some skyrocketing notes--Annie Lennox, for example. Not a five octave range, but she can sing at least a C6, which is one of the core markers for a sorpano easily, yet her coloring and weight make her a contralto.

  116. aging will not affect your vocal range in singing, in her case, she had reached high notes using an unhealthy technique that's destroyed her voice nowadays. she still can sing but not as great as Celine. Celine can still belt higher notes from the start of her career until nowadays. Celine sings effortlessly, using whistle for a lifetime would not be possible. and the end has come to MC.

  117. The voice is a muscle. And just like everything else with your body It Ages. This could mean a decrease in timbre, quality, AND notes. Name one singer (non operatic) who sounds the same and can still sing the same as good as they did in their debut. You wont find one.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Agreed. Aging most certainly can alter the voice. Depending on a number of variables (whether good technique was used over the course of a career, whether the singer smoked or drank heavily, whether there were any nodules or vocal disorders sustained over the years, whether the person is in good medical shape, etc.), the voice can change significantly. Some singers maintain dexterity as they age and most of their range appears to be intact. However, other singers undergo significant vocal transformation, sometimes with their voices actually becoming of a different vocal type altogether. Makes me think of Joni Mitchell. I am pretty certain she was a mezzo-soprano with a sweet, sincere head register at the start of her career. She's a contralto now with a smoky, darker voice.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Lisa Fisher, whistle register can actually in any classification, now rather a singer octives are completely connected is another thing. But it is possible for even a contrallo to have a whistle register. Whistle register is something that black women are more prone to having a whistle register.

  121. Cher has a top shape voice at 66. I would even say she sings a lot better than in her youth. I guess she has taken extreme care of it.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Ehh compared to her original voice although her voice is healthy it has changed a lot since her first debut. Her voice has drastically deepened and Darkened with age. Not that its necesserily a bad thing. Her voice has become so dramatic now that it can very much be confused for a mans voice to the average listener.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Actually yes her voice has changed, but it is not damaged. I think the main reason it's so different is that now she lowers her larynx a lot for this sound. But when I listen to her earlier recordings her range sounds so limited. Maybe she didn't know how to mix? But since the 80's she is much more of a vocalist, making the most of her deep contralto voice. If you hear her recent interview you can hear that her tone is really lighter and not like her singing voice so it's most likely a lowered larynx.

    But to come back to the topic, Mariah's voice is really amazing, now and then :).

    i would agree with everything besides your initial statement. mariah has always been a soprano. as she matured and learned better to control her voice, she began to employ her upper tessitura more frequently and dynamically (e.g., emotions). a dramatic coloratura for sure!

  138. She's kind of an anti-sfogato, if there is such a thing. A soprano who can sing contralto notes. And not all sfogato can sing all the roles for female voice--Callas herself only did mezzo and soprano roles, though perhaps she could've done contralto. A sfogato can have the coloring of either a contralto or a mezzo--it needn't be both, though a contralto-sfogato (for lack of a better term) probably would be able to pass as a mezzo too.

    Also, Mariah may sound dark in the low range, but there's no way she could project that with a microphone. That darkness is almost all breath.

    ReplyDelete
  139. The greatest vocalist/singer of all time to me.

    ReplyDelete
  140. The first minute of her song So Cold I think shows a 4 or 5 octave range (and at the very end the background part she sings is probably whistle register.) I'm not a great singer but am studying different people's ranges. I also think towards the end when she says "you're like the evil in disguise" is probably in the 7th octave when she says disguise.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Oh, dead, dead wrong. Mimi actually had very healthy technique- it's just that, in order to produce sound at all, she had to use constriction. This is because she has nodules. In any case, as she aged, she's had to use more and more constriction, resulting in the deterioration that is audible today.


    In any case, she still sounds pretty amazing. Your statement is pardonable because it was written four months ago, and you weren't witness to the belting done on LTT @ Australia.

  142. Honestly, due to the tonal changes and the obvious lack of ease belting, this profile is in need of a few fixes.

  151. mariah carey is a dramatic coloratura soprano because She can make phrases and words in the whistle register and easy sings a
    C7 and well above effortlessly. Her whistle register sounds exactly like
    a flute or piccolo. She is a Dramatic Coloratura Soprano. A Dramatic
    Coloratura Soprano has the agility, flexibility and range of a Piccolo
    Coloratura Soprano but the power and the lower register of a Dramatic
    Soprano, which to the untrained ear sounds like a Contralto.

  152. Before the lambs and stans attack me, let it be known that I adore Mariah Carey's voice and I believe she is immensely talented and has great musicality. She is one of my vocal inspirations. No matter what one believes her voice type is, it is hard to deny that she does not have one of the best tones, techniques, and ranges in U.S. pop music history.

    I don't understand the confusion. Her voice has very little vocal weight (with much of the perceived weight being due to her nodules), she is most comfortable in her belting range, and it is the most resonant part of her voice. In other words, everything about her screams soprano. Yes, she is has quite the lower extension, but it is often muddy and lacks the resonance or support of the upper parts of her voice. The sheer lack of vocal weight allows her to easily execute fast and accurate melisma, thus making her a lyric coloratura soprano. Songs like "Honey," "Fantasy," and "Forever," best showcase her ease in her belting range.

    She is NOT a soprano sfogato or soprano assoluta as she is a soprano. By definition, she CAN'T be a soprano sfogato, as it is defined as a mezzo-soprano or contralto who has an extension into the coloratura soprano's tessitura. She is a coloratura soprano, not a mezzo who just happens to have an extension.

    While she has great technique, it is definitely perfect. When she performs, she seems to be very tense, especially in her jaw, which can make it difficult to keep an open tone. It also could be that she is trying to keep her folds abducted to produce clear and resonant tones despite her nodules. Further, I have noticed her head voice isn't very strong (note I said HEAD VOICE, not whistle). The notes between her belting range and her whistle register (A5-D6) tend to not be very strong. Perhaps that is where her nodules lies.

  176. lol Mariah cannot glide through all her registers. In fact, she cannot go from Head to Whistle, she has to jump into whistle Register; she enters the whistle register, a disconnected register around Eb6. Also her belts especially her upper belts are very scratchy because she overly constricts in these parts of her range. Her lower register is very husky only because of her nodules and the fact that she constantly misplaces her larynx in this area.

    How can a voice sound like it has weight but actually doesn't? That part doesn't make sense to me.


    Also, her head voice isn't strong... because it's criminally underutilized.

  191. Brian, are the notes at the end of "If We" head voice or falsetto. They sound like head to me.

  192. It sounds like a Falsettotone to me. Its basically a reinforced falsetto. Almost headvoice but not quite there yet.

  193. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!


    Look into my homepage Abercrombie Et Fitch

  194. I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your blog.

    It seems like some of the text in your posts are running off
    the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them
    as well? This might be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen previously. Many thanks

  196. Actually, that video's audio is slightly out of sync, so if you can find a better one, you should watch that instead haha.

  197. Range is all the notes you can sing. whistle counts. I mean how would it be possible to have a 5 octaves range without the whistle?
