As September is shaping up to be an enormously busy month for me, I will not be submitting articles for the Final 3 and 2 singers. I wish the singers and the eventual winner great success in his or her musical career. It will be interesting to see how all of these young artists fare […]

Vocal Masterclass For Canadian Idol Season Five Top Four Singers With Paul Anka


by Rosanne Simunovic Kudos to Paul Anka! He was a wonderfully supportive mentor this week and it was so good to see him work in such a positive way with these young singers.

Vocal Masterclass For Canadian Idol Season Five Top Seven Singers: The Music Of Queen


by Rosanne Simunovic The music of the legendary rock group, Queen, was showcased this week and I wondered how well our young singers would fare with this very difficult, extremely intense and distinctly theatrical music. This is serious music, my fellow readers, and it separates the true artist from the karaoke singer. Individuality and creativity […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For Canadian Idol’s Top Seven Singers Featuring The Music Of Queen


Let the pyrotechnics begin. I am sure there will be a ton of glitz and glamour during tonight’s show. Given the theatrically driven music that encompasses Queen’s unique and passionate vocal style, no expense will be spared by CTV and the Canadian Idol franchise. I hope and pray these singers have done their homework, because […]
