Re: Learning to sound like you're singing with great power, which has always been mine and many others issue, although some of us have finally learned its not the volume that makes it sound powerful.

This one is recorded (just straight into a lap top) at normal singing volume, e.g. fairly loud speaking volume:

And this one is done at just above whisper volume, very quietly:

In a recording, you can barely hear the difference.

Personally, and I may be much too close to judge my own voice, but pretty much the only way I can hear which one is the near-whisper is because theres more creak and crack in it, because its almost whispering (and a little more off-key becaue it was harder to control lol)

And vice versa. There has a been a few times, and please, please, please believe me, I have sung a note so loud that if you were here with me, it would hurt your ears from the volume. Yet, it doesn't sound that loud in recording, partially because I have overloaded the mic and it is clipping. Plus, there is loss in mp3 format because it is a compressed format, analagous to say a zip file.
