They are all really good.

"Man in the Mirror" - bravo, its a deceptively tough sung, right in the middle of most people's passagio. To have it ring right without being too heavy, that is an achievement.

"Just Once" - like others, I like and admire the delicateness of the notes near the end. Ultimate control to express ultimate intimacy.

"Sir Duke"- Awesome, this is a keeper. Right voice, right phrasing and onsets. If you ever consider doing an album and have at least one cover song, make it this one. Unless, of course, you actually are Stevie, masquerading as a french guy from parts unknown.

"Let's Get it On" - You sang this like you wrote it, too. Bright and lovely highs and not afraid to go low, as the original vocal line did, for the harmony vocals, while the lead soars over them.

Bravo, Mssr. Gratouille.

Thanks Ron!

About "Let's Get It On". I didn't sing the low notes they are from the karaoke track ;). And no I'm not Stevie :lol:.

Even better, because I often find backing vocals on karaoke tracks to be oddly placed and oddly mixed and you made it work, anyway.

I like your voice, very 80's in the low notes what for my taste it's great! need some work on low notes though, for me they are more dificult to reach because for the most part of the human ears seems almost allways ok, didn't hurt so much as the high notes if you can't get there well, but without reach well the low notes you take the risk to get off key. but you are very amazing on high notes, for sure, no dificult at all, amazing! specially on the last one, where you seem to find your "your sky to fly" but you can go there on the low notes too, only a little bit more work to put your low notes in the same level as your high notes! and you will be just extraordinary! :D one of the best I heard for sure! :D

Agcor, you are right! I think a lot of people neglect their lower range and focus too much on singing high. My voice never wanted to go very low, I feel I'm not built for it...

I'm working on my 1st bridge at the moment, cause even if I sing in it (and above it) all the time it still needs work, but yes I'd like my whole voice to be perfect if that's possible, the lows too, even if I don't like to sing there very often! :lol:
