Technique for singing jazz ballads called Crooning using Bel Canto technique. Demonstrated here in a Piano/vocal cover version of The Nearness of You.
I agree with Sinead and her integrity regarding the Bel Canto approach. The real beauty and value of Bel Canto singing is in it’s honesty and purity. As your voice gets freer and more pure, it can’t help but reflect the emotions unique to you in your individual life experiences.
This honesty is further enhanced by song choice. Once you get your natural sound fully vibrating, then you will know what songs most suit your voice, making it easier to create your own unique interpretation organically, naturally. You are a work in progress, as we all are and to feel and express lyrics and melody deeply and honestly is true art. You will feel it from the depths of your being and so will your listening audience.
