Judy Garland - Over The Rainbow (Subtitiles)
I recently heard this beautiful song, literally being murdered by a young woman who sang it in such a horrible way, that I had to run back and listen to the original song sung so beautifully by Judy Garland.
It is one of my favorite songs and I am sure it is yours too.
I don't why people like to cultivate an artificially booming voice, when their own voice is not like that.
Shubha Mudhgal, the Indian Hindustani classical singer has a booming voice because she was born with it, and it suits the type of song she sings, similarly many Africans and African Americans have that kind of voice and it suits the type of songs they choose to sing..
However it was too much, listening to this young lady, who doesn't even have the body to carry such a voice, singing this beautiful and ethereally soft song in a booming voice, it just didn't sound right. Because it was obviously a put up voice, even the words of the song were not clear.
Otherwise the music concert of drums, harmonica, guitar, and flute was excellent.
Have you ever heard some one sing a beautiful song , which you loved in a voice totally not suited for that particular song?
Did you ever feel like asking her/ him to stop?
