Answer this question

  • Honest opinion: should I do the talent show? (video)?

You have a really soulful tone that kind of reminds me of Emeli Sande. I think that you should audition for the experience but the only thing that stood out to me was your diction. Though your tone was pretty I could not make up what you were signing. Also work on your breathing so that you aren't too breathy and it doesn't take away from your wonderful tone. Otherwise I rate it a 7/10 but I am sure that you can improve with more practice and a voice teacher. Also just as some song suggestions you could try "Next to Me" by Emeli Sande, "Pretty Hurts" by Beyonce, or even some Adele. The thing with a lot of pop songs is that they are really suitable for audition situations cause they are so wordy as the answerer below me mentioned. The best way to improve is to choose songs that force you to use breath support as well as enunciate your words. Hope I could help you in some way :-) Good luck if you decide to audition!

Do a different less wordy song. Give your voice a chance to ring out instead of bam bam bam quick notes. Something older and more soulful would show off your voice so much better. Yes, you have a decent voice, maybe even fabulous, but if you don't let it ring out, who's to know? Try some old 'Retha songs, or anything vintage motown. Maybe some Whitney, or even some of the slower Beyonce tunes. Let your voice soar like I think it can.
