I recently saw a TV Show were singers are regularly invited to sing one of their songs alone or with the host in a small pub like location with a much more intimate acoustic than a concert location.
Last time Sting was there…and as much as I like his voice from his albums…to hear that voice over TV in that small space compared to other singers’ voices there opened my eyes what kind of power and uniqueness the voices of such artists have. Hard not to cry by emotion in the moment he just sings the first word.
So I thought about which voices that mean even more to me would cause more than goosebumps in my case when heard in a moderate sized room instead of a concert place.
This would be Don Henley or Cassandra Wilson. Imagine hearing those voices around the corner, phew. This was of the living ones…of the dead ones it would be Billie Holiday.
Which is your favorite very unique voice that would make you drop dead in this way?
So “what’s your favorite voice” doesn’t necessarily mean “what’s your favorite singer” in terms of great songs he(she composes or sings. This is just about unique voices you go crazy for.
