Vocal Range: 4 Octaves 2 note and a semi-tone D3-F#7
Whistle Register: Yes
Vocal Strengths: A technical singer, who was operatically trained. Amazing control, that allowed for effortlessly sustained notes in all parts of the range. A fluidity and a dexterity to the voice that showed she was capable of complex melisma throughout the brilliantly connected registers. Her voice had a light, and sweet timbre throughout as well as a warm colouring. The lightness of the voice leant itself to the upper register, with the chest voice being expertly mixed so that notes hit in the upper half of the fifth octave displayed no decline in the quality of the sound. The head voice was bright and resilient and could switch between a pop styling or a fuller, grander operatic tone. Her whistle register was bright and versatile; allowing for her to annunciate words in it, mimic instruments and copy intricate birdsong.
Vocal Weaknesses: The lower range wasn't as strong, or versatile as the higher parts of the voice.
