Chris singing style

Post  Buenos on 1/6/2015, 2:44 am

One thing I've noticed that Chris has to my untrained ear a certain controlled element to his singing voice...It's beautiful to hear and to me shows a command of his tool...

The few times I've seen him sort discard it and get a little growly and messy was in these two songs...

Season 3:  "Michael"   "Black and White"
Season 5:  "Frenemies"  "I believe in a thing called love"

In these two songs Chris voice to me (and I realize it's also the source material) lets loose, and I love it... wub wub

Any other examples?

When it comes to growly and raspy, I can vividly recall Chris's 'I want somebody' in the Kurtcedes duet '4 Minutes'.

It's not tonally perfect, but his delivery of the line is an amazing fit for the song. It stood out for me and is perfect because of its imperfection... Does that even make sense? Maybe not.  tonguue

Chris is one of the few singers on Glee that has proven that he can pretty much sing every style of music they handed him. Pop, rock, classic, showtunes... he handled them all beautifully. For someone in the show who came in with the least amount of vocal training, he proved himself to have one of the most well-rounded and flexible voices in the cast.

Chris take on "HOME" with his lower register makes me wish they had given him a country song...

Some George Straight would have been wonderful....

I am amused by the fact that Pink Houses was meant to be a joke in the storyline and it didn't fit Kurt at all, but Chris made a very credible cover of it. He had the grit down, but with a certain lightness that fit how Kurt would approach the song. It's another great example of Chris being able to act while singing.

I confess I always liked "Pink House" for both the singing and acting in it.

The Noel Coward songs will be a different style of songs for Chris voice, so it would be interesting to see him in that sing/song musical theatre style of Noel.

Getting back to growly/raspy Chris, the 3 songs mentioned make him sound so sexy. Razz
