Honestly, I can match LeAnn Rimes almost to a T. So that would be my pitch, I spose. Which I think would be mezzo soprano after what I looked up, but I could be so wrong. I took Choir in 4th and 5th grade, so I’m just going off the knowledge I read today. I can also sing “Memory” from CATS pretty well, even the very high pitched parts sung by Jemima (but now that kinda strains me, although I can still do it)
Peggy Lee, so far sounds more like what I was going for - pitchwise, so thanks for that
I like Billie Holiday too, I’ve heard her before like on Forever Young (the movie with Mel Gibson), I have to be in the mood to hear her though, as with any easy listening type stuff.
:shock: I love the Bette Midler ones! This sounds like something I could sing to… I never even thought of really checking out Bette Midler before, - I guess I underestimated
Ella Fitzgerald too, I had heard of her before, but I never really checked her out before, I think I could sing along with her too.
Nina Simone is real deep for my voice, but I like the music
Rickie Lee Jones is more near me too
Carly Simon is a bit too deep for me too, but I like it
Joni Mitchell is alright, not exactly my taste.
ooooh Karryn Allison is EXACTLY what I was looking for. So far I really like her, Peggy Lee, and Bette Midler To sing along with, anyway
Diana Krall is awesome, but she sings a bit deeper than me too, I don’t know if my voice will get to that pitch, but I really like it.
I think I can dig Carol King too…
Dar Williams seems more like my pitch, but the music may not be exactly my type, I could dig it.
Renee Flemming’s CD has some good songs on it, but I can’t preview them on amazon, so I’m gonna have to look around some more on her.
Judy Garland rocks my socks, but I dont think I’ve given her much of the time of day either…I also like another singer from the movie " At War With the Army", a Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis flick…I dont know her name tho, I need to check on that.
Barbra streisand from the 60s sounds so nice, I can try to sing with that too. Seems my pitch. the song “Why did I choose you” is what I sampled.
oooh Natalie Cole is a good singer too I think I can sing along with her.
the MAry J Blige one isn’t exactly my taste as of now, but that CD sounds pretty cool. I think I would’ve really liked it when I was 7, but it exceeds my expectations of her.
Everything but the girl sounds pretty nice too, although not entirely what I was looking for, and a bit deeper than I sing.
Got anymore jazzy/swingin/operatic singers…or anyone really - woman of course, since this is the point of the thread, throw them at me Thanks so much guys! My wishlist of CDs is growing, and it’s been so long since this has happened!
