[Vocal Profile] Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello

Vocal Type: Light Lyric Soprano
Vocal Range: 3 octaves and 1 note and semitone C3- Eb6
Vocal Pluses: Camila Cabello's biggest strength lies in the intrinsic character of the voice. From the lows to the top, it retains a nasal, youthful and girlish quality. With this placement, she is able to transfer inflections and tics that are present in her speaking voice, allowing for her to stand out and be identifiable whether in a harmony (Good To Go) or over a heavy production (Work). The voice is agile and capable of melisma (more so at the top of the range than anywhere else) [Sledgehammer (live)].

Despite being a soprano, Camila has a comfortable lower register. The notes here sound to be supported and well connected to the range as a whole. They're also variable in timbre: being able to take on a gravelly and gutteresque quality [Never Be The Same] or be rounded and pleasant with a weight that isn't present elsewhere in the voice [Real Friends].

The belting range is tonally very similar to what proceeds it before, carrying the traits of the Diva's spoken voice. It is light-weight and clear (in the studio) with a tinny, almost colourless tone to it [She Loves Control]. These qualities are further enhanced as it climbs, but the youthful nature of the voice is heard even right at its top [Crying in the Club].

The highest part of the range is sang almost exclusively in falsetto. This means the voice has a timbre that is light, airy and soft [Never Be the Same]. Being comfortable in this part of her range, the Diva can switch between it and other parts of the range effortlessly and quickly [In The Dark] and sing phrases in it without fatigue [Havana]

Vocal Negatives: The belting range lacks resonance and support, which is most easily noticeable in live showings.
