Thread Name: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean?
Subject: RE: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice'
"Sing in your own voice" is essentially meaningless (unless you're subject to that whole class/accent nonsense in England).

When I sing trad folk, my voice sounds in a way that's (I hope) appropriate to that style of music. When I sing rock&roll, it sounds different; bluegrass or old-time, different again. But in each case it is my own voice. You sing to suit the material.
