Hello, Everyone! My name is Masumi aka LadyM from Japan.
I am a professional musician and vocal trainer. I also used to write articles for many different magazines, news papers, and websites… so Let?s talk about Ariana Grande on this website.
Ariana Grande was born on June 26,1993. She is an artist who has had a platinum career.
She is on the list of Billboard?s top 50 number-one artists, the list of the highest-certified music artists in the United States, and the list of artists who?ve reached number one in the Unites States.
She has also won the American music awards, Billboard music awards…and was nominated for 11 Grammy Awards. The list of her accomplishments is too long to list.
Her primary music style is POP and R&B, but you can hear that it is mixed with EDM, HIP HOP, and RAP.
She debuted when she was still a child. She performed in a popular version of the musical “Annie”. Afterwords she decided to seriously pursue her music career.
She cited Mariah carey and Whitney Houston as her major vocal influences. Her music style similar to pop, but much deeper.
You wouldn?t believe how small she is, only 5ft ½ inches (153.7 cm) but her voice and persona onstage is much larger.
She has a four octave vocal range. She can control the whistle voice and her voice reminds us of Mariah Carey. Everybody knows that she is an EXCELLENT SINGER!!!
She performed at the White house singing Whitney Houston?s “I have Nothing”. She was very proud of herself for being invited there and little nervous, but she spoke to the president saying in her own words, “Mr President, and misses Obama, What?s up? How are you? Good to see you.” LOL. Usually people wouldn?t speak like that, especially to the president. That moment made the audience laugh and relax…It is difficult to dislike her. She is a talented, young, charming woman.
People think that she is just a young “new generation artist”, but you should listen to the live versions of her songs “God Is A Woman” and “Imagine” on Youtube.
Lately, many artists sing with backing tracks so they are not used to singing with a real band of live musicians.
Listening to “God is a women” in the Live Lounge, you can tell that her singing is relaxed, and that her pitch is consistently perfect. Every note she sang was magical, beautiful, unique, and simply amazing. She may even be one of the first artists whose voice sounds even better natural than with autotune.
On her live Youtube performance of “Imagine”, Quest love from The Roots is on drums. He is from my home town of Philadelphia, and I?ve worked in his studio a couple of times as well… Anyway, she killed that song!!! She also fully controlled her whistle voice for the ending!!! I was just speechless.
I am sure that she will continue to build her successful career. Let?s all look forward to enjoying her future music. Bye for now!
