Vocal Masterclass Discussion For Canadian Idol’s Top Six Singers Featuring Pop-Rock With Maroon Five

I have been having a busy week, considering it’s only Monday. I will try to post a Vocal Masterclass article for the Top Six singers as soon as time permits.

Once again, I invite your sincere and honest feedback as we move precariously toward the end of this year’s season. It’s been one rocky road, hasn’t it? This is not the season that I envisioned.

Kudos to the Top 6. I thoroughly enjoyed the show tonight.

The Masterclass article will go up in the next couple of days.
