  5. I agree with DivaDevotee because I've heard that Jill is classically trained...she used to sing 'opera' and I think has busted out an aria at a performance or two. I mean, I'm not super knowledgeable about technical things but I think this is right.

  6. I feel Jill Scott is a contralto.

  7. Too technical and needs to work on enunciation

  8.  She is a soprano. She is a dramatic soprano, she mostly uses her lower range in most of her music, giving the impression that she is a contralto

  9. Jill is a Soprano, she mostly uses her low and mixed mid high notes in most of her songs, listen to the high parts, she has the same timbre Soprano voice comparable to Kelly Clarkson and Patty Labelle's

  13. Also, Jill can't whistle, she hits "opera style" notes....Its not the same as a whistle.

  14. That's not a fault in technique, that's a fault in musicianship.

  15. But, at the same time, DD posts that as a negative on loads of people's profiles :p. Saying it detracts from the melody etc.
    *devils advocate*

  16. The C7 sounded like a whistle to me...

  17. I know this, I'm just stating that oversinging isn't a fault in one's singing technique per se but more so a fault in their musicianship. That's all.

  19. I agree with this. Dramatic sopranos are often confused with contraltos to due their dark, heavy timbre. One must check the tessituras and comfortable ranges to make the distinction. Also, even though dramatic sopranos tend to be very dark for soprano standards, their actual vocal weight tends to still be lighter than the most traditional contraltos.

  20. that said couldnt she be a soprano with a highly developed chest voice explainning her darker heavy timbre, Yes? NO?

    ReplyDelete
  21. The underlying timbre could be apparent in other registers. If she has a developed chest register, that could give her sound more of a heavy, darker tone either way. But this darkness would probably be apparent in the head voice, too, if she were a dramatic soprano. Their head voices are not as light as lyric sopranos.
