Thread Name: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean?
Subject: RE: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean?
It's very hard to li9terally sing in your own voice i.e traditional Irish lyrics by the way they're written just tend to make a non Iris voice sound Irish, similarily Country lyrics and many pop lyrics tend to sound American, trad English more an English accent. The only literally 'own voice' singers I hear are those to sing in dialect such as Black Country, Liverpool, Geordie and the like. But I've always taken the term to mean do it your own way, not just copy the sound as is done in Karaoke. Use the lyrics as a frame work and put yourself into your interpretation
