Today I want to share of you one of my Idols. Joan Sutherland was really one of the most amazing sopranos ever.
I have spent many an hour listening and glowing in her vocal beauty. She is a lyric Coloratura Soprano and really absolutely amazing. Her instrument is a gift from God and her technique is incredible. I have often been moved to tears when listening to her beauty.
I know that many of you are not Opera singers, but as singers we can learn from all types of singing genres. Today when you watch this link and listen to Dame Sutherland, I want you listen and feel the line of her voice. This is something that I always talk about in singing. How important it is to have a beautiful line. She is the epitome of it.
You can skip the first minute and a half of the video which is a bit cheesy 60′s Opera. She starts to sing at about 1:30 into it by 2:30 into it you can hear this line I am talking about. There are no single notes or syllables. Every thought and sound is leading somewhere in her sound and voice. Her breath control is INSANE and her sound glorious perfection. Few can even begin to touch the line that Joan Sutherland achieved over and over again.
Just thought you might enjoy listening to one of my favorites. Please enjoy!
