Christina Grimmie

Post  CrazyNinjaFish on Thu Jun 06, 2013 12:31 pm

WORK IN PROGRESS, NOT NEARLY FINISHED

Voice type: Mezzo-soprano
Total Range: D3-C♯6
Sung Range: D3-G♯5

(Note, many of these notes are in her covers of popular songs, though some are hers.)

Significant high notes:
C♯6 ("Forget You", "Just a Dream")
G5 ("Advice" live)
F♯5 ("Advice", "Titanium", "Stay", "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark/Girl On Fire", "I Will Always Love You")
F5 ("Titanium", "Some Nights")
E5 ("Stay")
Eb5 ("Titanium")
D5 ("Set Fire to the Rain", "Somebody That I Used to Know")
C♯5 ("My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark/Girl On Fire", "I Will Always Love You")
C5 ("Set Fire to the Rain", "Somebody That I Used to Know", "I Dreamed a Dream", "Some Nights")

Significant low notes:
B2 ("I Will Always Love You")
C3 ("Stay")
D3 ("I Dreamed a Dream")
Eb3 ("Baby")
E3 ("Bad Romance")
G3 ("Titanium")

Please feel free to add songs, also, since the majority of her videos have been temporarily taken down, I'm guessing on a lot of these. Thanks Smile

E♭5s and some jumps to F5 and F♯5 in the chorus lines of "Titanium"

G3s in "Titanium" as well.
C5s and D5s in the harmonies of "Somebody That I Used To Know".

She is by no means a contralto. Her timbre is that of either a mezzo-soprano or an alto. Contralto is only used on here for very low-placed women.
Range isn't necessarily a factor, but the weight of the voice and the distinctness of registers.

An alto on here would be Hope Sandoval: http://therangeplace.forummotions.com/t1029-hope-sandoval?highlight=hope+sandoval

A song by Mazzy Star (Hope Sandoval is the vocalist):




A contralto on here would be Lisa Gerrard: http://therangeplace.forummotions.com/t970-lisa-gerrard?highlight=lisa+gerrard

A song by Lisa Gerrard & Pieter Bourke:

Alto, not Contralto

Saintish, thanks for clearing that up! I was a bit confused, and I was looking around on the internet for the distinctions between those terms, but I couldn't find anything too definitive. Even in one wikipedia article it said several different things, haha.

It does to a lot of the "well-established" people on this website, so I thought I should just try to help avoid all the bickering.

Since she's an alto, you can start her significant Highs at about A4 if you wish.

Highs

F♯5 (''Stay'', ''My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark/Girl On Fire'', ''I Will Always Love You'')
F5 (''Some Nights'')
E5 (''Stay'')
D5 (''Stay'')
C♯5 (''My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark/Girl On Fire'', ''I Will Always Love You'')
C5 (Some Nights'')

Lows
C3 (''Some Nights'', ''Stay'')
B2 (''I Will Always Love You'')


Her voice is actually stunning btw.

Thanks for the notes! I can't believe I forgot about the fall out boy/alicia keys mash-up one, that was one of her most impressive recent ones.

And she has sooooo many A4s, I think it'd be a bit much to include them Razz

Ok to be fair she only had 13 videos on her channel so it'd not that hard to note watch her and change her vocal and total ranges to reflect the changes I have shown.

She actually has over 100 videos, she just made most of them private about a couple months ago. She mentioned on her facebook and twitter that they'll be back sometime. (didn't I also say that in the OP?)

I think based on her tessitura she sounds like an alto, since she has to quite a bit more effort to get higher, and her lows sound pretty good.

I'll just wait for a few more opinions before I change it.

I think she's more of a Mezzo too to be honest.
She gets F♯5 pretty easy and her general tone echoes Aguilera.

Since there are soooo many different definitions (half of which are contradict quite a bit on this forum, like this one), I'll just follow your advice and change it.
Be happy.

I doubt it. The performance was in G major iirc. It would have caught my attention if there was even lower I think. I might be wrong however

Why hasn't this person added the notes yet? And how come under both Total & Sung vocal range, her lowest note's a D3 but under her low notes it's got a B2 and C3?

And also it says her Sung Range's D3-G♯5, but I don't see any G♯5 anywhere on her thread. Somebody needs to seriously fix this thread, it's just a mess.
