    THE ARTIST SERIES: THE GOODS Pt. 1

    Barbra Streisand, Robert Plant, Marvin Gay, Karen Carpenter, Chris Martin, Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, Alison Krauss, Carrie Underwood, Joni Mitchell, Paul McCartney, Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain, Tom Petty, Elton John, Carole King, Beyonce... they have it, they found it. And while they are all incomparable in musical style and vocal ability, they all have one common thread... ORIGINALITY. They are distinct... identifiable within seconds, their tone, style and extraordinary ability to let their soul be heard through the power of their voice, through the message of the song is what sets them a part from the rest. Though it is fundamental, It is not merely enough to just sing on pitch technically well. Voice lessons can help us develop healthy habits, improve our pitch, and explore the capabilities and range of our voices and strengthen them, but it is my own belief that there is only so much that can be taught. Tone, unlike hair color, cannot be altered, whether it is obscure, silky, gruff, smokey, delicate, bold or clear as a bell, it is ours, it is what we are born with. This is the basis of the gift, along with other important components, but not the end all... that "tone" must marinate in life experience, be used, worked, loved and expressed and challenged to truly become something spectacular... I think it is what turns an amateur into an artist, and gives a performer a persona, and turns a singer, into a star.

    ^Funny that the "woman" of the year is a little girl wearing princess outfits and living in a fairy tale, singing about enchanted princes and castles. lol

    Take away all the props, princess dresses, circus theme, dancers, etc (that detract from her horrible vocals and keeps her little kid fan base occupied) and it is just her and her band---and what do you have ---NOT the woman of the year--but a wannabe artist that jumps around on stage awkwardly like a giraffe and can not sing worth crap who would not be able to sell out a small concert at all.

    Most likely Brooke White already knows what Carrie can do, herself an AI alumni. No surprise Joni, Karen, Carole Kings on the lists, theirs are her favorite genre. Sad though, Brooke kind of music is no longer popular or she could have gone places.
