How Far Can Someone Fare In Music Without A Good Voice? by Vesuvius(m): 4:21pm On Apr 30, 2016
Some musicians have had wonderful piece of music within them, waiting to be released (lyrics great sounds, good outlay of songs and all), but without a good voice to finish the job. Someone like Barry White encountered same problem and that's what later gave birth to baritone voice in music. I know his' was a rare case, but I feel there should always be a way so far there's a will.
Voice training can help I know, but if it fails, how else can a gifted musician who has other packages but lacks only voice to convey it get helped to unleash the sounds within?

Please I need educativel contributions here, thanks!

How? I can't say for sure but it is important to keep keeping at it.

Training and truly understanding the rudiments of vocal dynamics will help one in discovering one's true voice and style. Of course, we have those who don't even have 'vocal talent' to their voice that are out there but in the international scene, it is mostly those with that have found that unique factor that are truly remarkable and remembered.

R. Kelly possesses a sweet and sonorous voice but hardly pitches or goes beyond a particular scale; he is revered as one of the greats (of the newer age anyway). Anita Baker was a victim of several rejections specifically for her deep male like voice... today , we know where she is placed in the Hall of Fame.

Not everyone will be an Aretha Franklin... you can be a Louis Armstrong.

Okay. U are right on working on oneself. Life can be funny, what people may term unacceptable today can become a vogue tomorrow. I am working towards a special genre of music in fusion with the best voice I can belt out. Writing songs and coming up with melodies in my brain is my stronger point though. Am working towards a genre that will have a cross between nostalgic melodies like New age kinds of sounds (Yanni/Enya) spiced up with vocals and instruments maybe beats ala African sounds like Lionel Petersen (am talking about conga drums, flutes, bells, whistles,, keyboards etc). Complete with rich lyrics (Christian music). And I will have my own kinda arrangements lyrics wise. As a matter of fact, I already know what I want, I just need a seasoned producer to let's make hits. By God's grace I will get there. wink wink
