Vocal Masterclass Discussion For Canadian Idol’s Top Five Singers Featuring Idol Favorites With Kelly Clarkson


Who here was not enchanted by Kelly Clarkson’s mentoring strategy with our remaining five singers: Brian, Carly Rae, Dwight, Jaydee and Matt? She was a positive, yet constructive vocal coach and her youthful, genuine personality was instrumental to the successful performances of all the singers this week.

This was a great show. All the singers did extremely well, I thought, and their true potential as artists was a revelatory process this week.

I am running a little behind once again this week, as I am busy organizing my teaching schedule for the Fall season. Additionally, I have been enjoying my babysitting duties with my 20-month-old granddaughter. Little children truly are a full time job but it is sure a positive and life altering experience.

Please feel free to post your comments. I appreciate your patience.
