I'm a metalhead girl, easily switching between styles and capable to do the most of music geners - from trip-hop to trance, house and black metal. I do believe there is one crucial thing for a vocalist, and it is to sing with soul involved and being totally aware about what you are singing. If one's got only technique it is not enough to make other hearts beat faster. Do it sincere or don't do it at all.
When I'm down and moody, I remember God hears everything. That means He does listen to my tracks as well ^--^.
