I think she may be a regular soprano with a dark tone to her low notes

Don't think so. Her lower notes are very warm, and her timbre down there actually is quite reminiscent of Mariah Carey's.

Nothing soprano-ish about her.

There's nothing to apologize for... You are allowed to have your own opinions, after all. Wink

This performance has been criticized more than enough for its lyrical content, but I honestly don't pay too much attention to that field. Whistle I think that this is one of Christina's worst performances vocal-wise, though: her runs are far too obnoxious for a song that simple and stripped down, not to mention how much she strains on the higher notes. The switch around 1:45 is far too obvious, whereas 1:35 and especially 1:54 are outright PAINFUL and quite tasteless.

Now that I've criticized her, I can safely say that I love her voice.

@Martin Don't worry, it's not just you apparently, but there really isn't any reason she's that different from any other regular mezzo IMO. Good to see her thread here again btw.

Thanks T and B6 Smile
It's just i've never been confident with figuring Voice types (Particularly females)
I'm ok with most male types but i'm lost with female

Yes, I find it easier to research male voices too. Guess I'm just used to it. (Plus I can use my own voice as a tool, too)

Well, I'm a singer, so this researching also helps to learn new things about my own voice as an instrument.

Guess she has the same tessitura as Mariah Carey.

She's definitely a mezzo-soprano, even if her lows are a bit airy for a mezzo.

Adolf Hitler wrote:Guess she has the same tessitura as Mariah Carey.

Nope, nope, nope.

Listen when she tries to sing up high (starts around the 1:00 marks):



She has no stamina and she's straining. And then listen when Mariah tries to sing in that range (from 2:00 onward)



Or just the fact that Christina has historically struggled to hit her upper fifth octave notes live:

Some good Eb5s and harmony F5s in Genie In A Bottle in very lightened full voice (though the first Eb5 might be falsetto). Does she really sing "rub me"? Sounds pretty ridiculous.

Weird that she begins straining and really belting that low usually though innit? Those ~C5 notes in the Star-spangled banner performances sounded very squeezed.

Yup, very strained... Too chest-based and throaty approach up there, I think.

Yeah, sounds almost as if she's pulling chest (probably not what's really happening, sounds still to good to be pure chest brought to its extremes).

When she tries to belt above around C5 she pulls her larynx up too hard and she doesn't keep an open throat, so sometimes her throat just closes up on her:



The issue is entirely in her throat and her poor placement. She has shown signs of improvement (after having begun vocal lessons), though:



It's an improvement.

I love her higher singing, which is why I'm hoping to hear the improved results.

In the Arabian Nights tale, if someone rubbed the bottle, the Genie who was trapped in the bottle would come out. There's a double entendre in there obviously. Not the best of lyrics, but there you have it.

Yeah I know about the tale, it's just that it sounds too ridiculous to be true phrased in that way with that video.

Yup. Christina's vocal weight in the middle plays against her. She has never been able to thin adequately enough to sing past passagio and the end result is a coarse strained shouty mid belt with can often go out of tune . She is consistently offkey live. Also she overkills everything with vocal runs and even random noises.

She initially has a beautiful rich timbre but she doesn't follow through.

I always loved her voice, damn thats amazing voice but her technique, excessive runs, horribly strained belts or rather screams are really annoying Smile
