  1. you need to update your facts. Afterglow live has over a 25 second note. Her vocals have cleaned up also.

    When did you write this?

  2. Mirrorball live has her sing a 30 second long note (D5) on possession.

  3. Thanks "Anonymous 21 October 2009 20:49" I'll check that out and amend asap.
    As for "Anonymous 18 October 2009 23:57" (btw im not sure if you're the same people) I am in no way, or in no way claim to be, an expert. Neither do I have every song/album by these singers and that is why i welcome comments to enlighten me. So if you are going to make suggestions please be specific to a song.
    Thank you both :D

  4. She is clearly a sopano. And how is yodeling a negative when it is an artistic choice? This site is ridiculous sometimes.

  5. If you do these based on live performances, listen to this.

    She and her back up singer hit some EXTREMELY high notes throughout the entirety of the song. There is a bit of clipping with the audio, but you can still hear the vocals pretty well! Thanks!

  6. Its obviously biased. Didn't even bother to write anything about her.

  7. How is she a soprano? All her high notes are in pure (disconnected) head voice. Where is her full voice upper extension? Does she even have the registration of a soprano? She's very comfortable in the mid-range.
