Mariah Carey - Without You. Mariah Carey is also one of my favorite female vocalists. She is so expressive (one of the most important parts of singing well - most amateurs don't give enough expression to their singing!) - and she has a tremendous range. She is one of the few singers who use what's called a "whistle range"; a very, very high pitch that not many are capable of. It's a trick of the vocal cords. I'll post one of her songs where she uses this.
The 2012 BET Honors~~Adding to the prestige of the evening was an appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama who along with Willow Smith, Queen Latifah and Cicely Tyson presented Maya Angelou with the literary arts award. Michelle, showing off her fit physique in a crimson one-shoulder dress, called the poet “an iconic, almost otherworldly figure” who “lifts us out of our everyday lives and makes us think we can do anything.” (pictured Mrs. Obama, Mariah Carey , husband Nick Cannon and baby)
