Vocal Type: Lyric Mezzo-Soprano
Vocal Range: A2 - A5 - E6 (3 octaves, 4 notes)
Whistle Register: No
Vocal Strengths:A powerful, dark, rich and sturdy voice that has a trademark vocal grit within its flawless placement and superb vocal control. Pink's voice can cut through the roaring instrumentation of her music with its incredible and effortless resonance [U + Ur Hand]. The voice carries a heavy, wide vibrato that is controlled and never laboured.The voice is also capable of melisma- though it is under utilized [Love Is Such A Crazy Thing].
This Diva is known to be a top-echelon emotive singer. For example, Family Portrait sees her approach the soprano tessitura as she uses her coarse pulled belt to communicate angst and pain; Who Knew has her purposefully cracking and breaking the vocal line to accentuate the heartbreak of the lyric; while Please Don't Leave Me sees a lyrical, supple tone echoing the song's vulnerability.
Pink has a near-perfect lower range that is excellently supported and greatly projected, holding a dark, full timbre even at the lower end [Bad Influence]. Due to this, she's able to effortlessly phrase here [Don't Let Me Get Me]. The vocal placement is always stable, and as a result, the sound created is controlled, healthy and extremely audible [Crystal Ball].
As she ascends into the mid-range, it exhibits a far smoother quality than the lower range. However it maintains the richness and ringing timbre of the voice. Here, there is a spunky tone that is often accentuated by the unique style of phrasing the Diva tends to adopt [Just Like A Pill]. Thanks to the fluid, easy transitions within Pink's range, she can use the mid-range to access the upper and lower regions of the voice with ease [True Love].
The mid-belts can be effortlessly phrased with a slicing, powerful and clean tone [Get The Party Started]. The voice, in general here, is known for its incisive, earthy and confident tone, which is bolstered by the Diva's empathetic singing [Try]. As noted, she can pull the belts into her throat for a rougher sound, however if not purposefully pulled into the throat- and mixed with the head voice- the sound is well-placed, supported, bright and resonant. The voice has a surprisingly elastic character as a darker mezzo-soprano, and can ascend to the top notes with ease [Blow Me (One Last Kiss)]. As a whole, the belting range is what makes Pink the vocalist she is.
The falsetto, although laboured, pulled and lacking the control of the rest of the voice, does carry a breathy, light timbre. However this can be more fuller and controlled [Sober]. Pink can also add a "rockiness" to the timbre, giving it an edge [Misery] that is sympathetic to the rest of the range. Due to consistent under usage, it's found mainly within harmonies and octave unisons [Timebomb]. Even then, she’s able to phrase effortlessly within the range and utilise a sing-talk styling [Stupid Girls].
Overall, P!nk is a vocalist known for her dynamic, robust and emotive voice that carries exemplary musicality- demoed through her usage of harmony and octave unisons - and flawless breath control.
Vocal Weaknesses: The grit can become overbearing at points within the upper chest, and the falsetto is disconnected, laboured and lacks control and easy access.
