Ciara- Vocal Profile/ Range

Vocal Type:  Mezzo-soprano
Vocal Range: 2 octaves 3 notes and 1 semitone. C#3- G5
Vocal Pluses: Sweet, soft voice that works best in its midrange and head voice. It has the ability to take on a light, breathy timbre that has a pleasing quality about it that harmonises easily.
Vocal Negatives:Voice becomes nasally and whiny in the chest register.


  1. I love her voice. I think the breathy feel to ir makes it special, and Ciara knows how to use it, not to mention she's an amazing performer.

    CIara, is a soubrette Mezzo-Soprano. And her vocal range Spans 4 octaves,
    Vocal Fry/ Low Notes
    Modal Register
    Belting Register
    Falsetto/ Head voice Register
    now does she possess a whistle register? not yet, but if she gets the vocal training that she needs it can be possible
     *the (A2) harmonizes in "Ride", (Bb2) harmonizes in "Switch", (B2) live on web-cam, (C3) live in concert during a low melismatic slide. The F#5 belt was harmonized in the song "Tell Me What Your Name Is", The (A6) was a chirp in the song "I'm On"

  3. Howdy Patrick, I've just listened to Ride and couldn't find a note anywhere near an A2, could you tell me where it is.

    I agree with the soubrette prefix, but I haven't used it here- though I used it on Britney's profile because people were going nuts- because that's more to do with a role that someone with that kind of voice would play in an opera and is not classified as a vocal fach in itself .

  4. I really like the breathy feel too her voice. Will amend the profile to include it!

  5. I just want to say, I've never beena  super huge Ashanti fan, but you need to add her on here. Check out the cover of The Bodyguard songs she did, especially I Will Always Love You.
    Obviously, she's not Whitney, but impressive none the less, especially for someone who I don't usually associate with having great pipes-

  6. hey thanks for that  link here is the comment I left there

    "I think Ashanti did a great job, but her tone is a little too weak to
    really do these songs justice.Though to be fair to her not many people
    would be able to compare favourably to Whitney Houston. I think her take
    on “I will always Love you” was better as it had individual flourishes
    and style added to the vocals that made the song more her own. I totally
    agree with you about her voice maturing though, it definitely sounds
    stronger than before."

  7. Ciara has hit an A5 in her head register

    okay i am back! Ciara is a Soubrette Mezzo-Soprano, (Bb2-C6)
    Lowest note (Bb2) harmonized in "Switch" and "Click, Flash"
    Highest belt (F#5) in "Make it Last Forever"
    highest note (C6) live in interview with wendy williams

    hello i listened to it again, and it was an (F3-A3-C4) thats the harmony, my bad. but her voice goes lower than (C3) and higher than (G5). If you dont include her exclaimations, (C#6), (D6), (Eb6), (E6), (F6), (F#6), (G6), or (G#6), then she would still have a 3 octave vocal range (B2-C6), just look at the video where she hits a (B2)

  10. Ciara is a Soubrette !! 
    Ciara gives the sixth eighth notes in some songs, for example the album: FantasyRide

  11. Ciara's actual vocal range is about B2-B5. That video is extremely dated. She's hit B2 in lower harmonies of some of her songs like "Click Click Flash" here: , B2 lower harmony of "I Run It" here: & a B5 live performing with 50 cent at a club here: 8:22

  12. She sings G5 -c6

  13. If Ciara practiced better control, and had cleaner runs/vibrato, she'd have a great voice. Her tone is very sweet and unique, but her vocal control is pretty bad. I mean, she has improved over the years but not much! Amazing performer though!

  14. I think she's a good . It really surprised me was that she sings while dancing and that's tough. Very few can do it! Seriously most people mim.

  15. This needs to be updated Ciara is an airy soprano now
