Enya Vocal Profile/ Range:

Vocal Type: Mezzo-Soprano
Vocal Range: 1 Octaves 5 notes (G3-E5)
Whistle Register: No
Vocal Strengths: Predominately breathy, warm and light voice with a soft and airy quality to it that extends throughout. The voice can also be more solid, and rounded in tone- though could never be described as weighty. When this fuller tone is used in the fifth octave it can produce a light, operatic like colour to it. As stated the voice harmonizes brilliantly and layers well to produce unisons that retain lightness, warmth and the voice's intrinsic ethereal character.
Vocal Weaknesses: Her voice, due to its airy quality, can be seen as as having a weak tone.
Must Hear: Orinoco Flow, Far and AwayThe First of Autumn, May It Be, Only If, Only Time and Long Long Journey

Lily Allen- Vocal Profile/ Range

Vocal Type: Soubrette
Vocal Range: 1 octave notes and a semitone  G3-Eb5
Whistle Register: No
Vocal Pluses: A light, warm and sweet voice that has a pleasant, effortless tone to it in part due to her voice never being pushed or strained. Her head voice has a pleasing quality about it, and is accessed reasonably lower than most female singers, starting at the top of the fourth octave.
Vocal Negatives: Her real skill comes from her lyricism, attitude and not her voice. Her range is limited and doesn't have any strength in its chest register or its lower extremities. Overall, her technical proficiency as a vocalist doesn't seem to be too high, if her skills are to be judged on the musical output so far.
