Very smooth sound you`ve got there! You should work on your diction though and well... Stop using pitch correction / autotune, you can really hear it work, it sounds very unnatural, your timbre still shines through and that`s a good thing!

I have to say this, your voice sounded very weak in the entire song, sing this requires more power. even in the verses, so keep working

I'm not sure whether there's more pitch correction involved, but your pitch here sounds spot on nonetheless. Your voice sounds very effeminate, even powerless, but it's not bad. This kind of a song, though, calls for passionate howling, whereas you were more like singing it under a blanket so that your parents next door wouldn't hear it. Get what I mean? Try to get more into the song, feel the emotion and attempt adding a bit of volume/power to your singing (without straining, of course). You have an interesting voice that'd probably suit certain kind of material well, you just need to practice more. Keep on recording stuff and think about the feeling of the song more.

I'm not sure, his voice brings to mind Aaron Neville for some reason. That dude doesn't use autotune, his voice just has that perma-awkward 'natural effect' to it. Rafaelchelsea, did you apply autotune to this one? I wouldn't advice it if you're looking for honest vocal critique, as it masks away your true tone and ability to stay on pitch.

The nasality is indeed a problem, that's why I'm suggesting adding a bit more power to the singing. Better give some sort of constructive critique instead of just trashing somebody to the ground, that's not worth much.

Thanks for your advice Rapport Rapturer. I used some autotune, because I like the effect.
I understand what you mean ! My voice is very light and it sounds very high pitched. I also sing light, so it sounds powerless.
I will try to sing with more power.

Nasality is my biggest problem. But I don't know how to deal with that.

And a question. Can you recommend me some songs. Which style would I fit in ?

"Piano Man" is a classic challenge if you have the range for it. Also, some Justin Timberlake numbers would suit your tone, as would Michael Jackson's ballads like "Stranger in Moscow". Record yourself a lot and sing daily, you'll probably notice a lot of improvement by documenting your fluns and successes.
