Oh! My! Goodness! If this isn ‘t the best thing I have heard in a long time, then I don’t know what is!
Immortal Aria, a mother – son musical team on Facebook- shared this gem of a number performed by the talented Adam Lambert when he was 22-years-old.
Listen – I have heard this classic musical theatre song performed countless number of times in my musical career. However, none can surpass the immaculate, exquisite, perfect interpretation of this number as mastered by the mega – talented Adam Lambert.
When I wasn’t being transported to another dimension by the evenness and purity of his crystalline head voice, I was blown away upon hearing Adam’s phenomenal approach to his phrasing. And his musical ingenuity. And his ability to take artistic risks with confident technical skills.
My favorite sections of this song occurred between 2:03-2:12 and 3:23- 3:36 in the audio timeline. The sustained vocal and breath control he exhibits during these special moments in this spectacular song are truly inspiring.
It demonstrates that head voice rules in every vocal genre – something which I have stressed time and again in my Vocal MasterClass articles. Without it, the voice lacks transparency, refinement, evenness and coherent intonation.
Have a listen and be amazed. Adam is truly one of American Idol’s greatest discoveries and this song pretty much sums up this very fact .
Bravo Adam. No critique from me today! This is a “must-listen”, especially for singers. Take 4 minutes out of your Monday and go for a special musical ride with Adam Lambert. This is one MasterClass Monday you don’t want to miss.
