This video addresses the question of vibrato.

How do we sing with vibrato?

And more importantly, how do we sing with and develop a healthy and therefore great sounding vibrato?

There is a huge misconception among singers that vibrato is something we have to manufacture or somehow create ourselves. This is very far from the truth!

This shows a lack of understanding of what vibrato actually is. Vibrato is simply the rapid variation in pitch produced by the oscillation (movement) of the vocal cords. And the vocal cords are only free to produce a nice sounding vibrato if everything else – i.e. our foundation vocal technique is working well

A proper and correct vibrato comes naturally as the result of healthy vocal technique – nothing else!

The Top 3 things that produce/ develop a great vibrato sound:

1) Effective Deep Breath and steady and even release of the breath

Practice breathing in and out in steady counts

2) No constriction in the tongue

Stretch out the tongue to get rid of tension in the root of the tongue

3) Keeping a nice open throat

Practice ‘ooo’ arpeggio

Watch to the end to see me sing a cover of this song!

In this video, I give specific tips on how to hit the big notes in the Chorus on Adele’s Rolling in the Deep.

Adele uses 2 different approaches for the power notes

1) Belted Chest voice on the words “all” and “inside”

In order to do this well singers have to:
i) Take a deep effective breath
ii) Project on the vowel sound
iii) Add a ‘sob’ sound to the note so that you can hold it long and not sound harsh

2) Solid Head voice on the word “deep”

Just let your voice go into head voice, don’t try to belt this one out. Use ‘whoop and weeee’ sounds to release the strength of the head voice

I end this video with me singing a cover of the song. It’s very raw, as I don’t use any editing – but I hope you like it!
