How to Sing “Silent Night” – Pop Singing vs. Musical Theater – Felicia Ricci



How to Sing “Silent Night” – Pop Singing vs. Musical Theater // – My 8-week elite singing training program is re-opening January 2017! Get on the waitlist!

The gist of this video is:

Musical theater singing features pure, open, sustained vowels and is more faithful to rhythm.

Pop singing lets you have more freedom with pronunciation. Play around with diphthongs, rhythms, breathiness, and vocal fry, as these simple adjustments can instantly change the genre of the singing. If you struggle with how to sing pop, hopefully these simple approaches can help you start to reshape your sound.

This isn’t a detailed musical theater or pop singing tutorial per se, but it’s supposed to be a fun ‘n’ silly video that contrasts some key approaches that can help make your singing sound more pop-py.

(Because I personally am a beginner pop singer, I would consider this pop singing for beginners. 🙂 )

Enjoy – and don’t forget to get on the waitlist for my online singing training Singing Transformation! It begins with a free 90 minute singing webinar that is pretty awesome. Hope to see you there!

How to Sing Any Song – Modified Lyrics – Felicia Ricci



How to Sing Any Song – Modified Lyrics / – My elite training course “Singing Transformation” will re-open so soon! Sign up to get on the waiting list.

This video is about my favorite singing “hack” – modified lyrics! This easy singing tip will give you the most bang for your buck, even (especially) if you’re a beginner.

You can download the .PDF summary here:

If you’ve watched my “How to Sing Chandelier by Sia” video, or any others in my pop song series, you know that I like to take regular English words and translate lyrics into singer-friendly vowels. Why? It can do WONDERS for your singing.

When you rewrite singing lyrics with more “open” vowels, which are easier and more resonant to sing, they become a million times easier for singers to tackle.

What’s more, it makes your singing tone less closed or pinched, and more open, rich, and resonant.

I get tons of requests to translate specific songs, which I will keep doing in future, but I also wanted to give you my guidelines so that you can do it for any song that you like to sing!

Be sure to download my .PDF summary so you can check out the best singer vowel translations and start singing in with a more open, resonant, and beautiful tone.
