I've been practicing compression/fold closure instead of solely breathy phrases, like the way I usually sing, with this Nina Girado song. The original song is mostly done in head voice, but I tried to make a lot of the phrases more chesty. Just wanted to share, and get feedback on any improvements from my past recordings. Also ran a dynamic vocal compressor over the vocal track.

Here are two samples that have a little more vibrato/chestiness in the originals.

A Christina song: https://app.box.com/s/x3wzyn8l2oa3ewbmmykq

Here, trying to keep the same closure with the F#4's except these are longer than the ones in "Someday".

I do.

Just read this thread, http://themodernvocalist.punbb-hosting.com/viewtopic.php?id=8899

So I'm going to wait a few days until my sinus clears up before I re-record anything or record new samples. I know I don't normally have pitch problems when I'm not stuffed up, but my vibrato does need work. However, the point of this thread was just to inquire about my chest voice and particular phrases/notes in these recordings as opposed to what I used to post, if you've listened to those recordings. Thanks for your input.

I think you have a really nice tone and have the beginnings of something really nice. It is pitchy in places, but the more you practice playing a note and singing it back (use a keyboard app if you don't have a piano) the more you will improve. You won't improve by just singing along to the original song. Your voice is a little breathy in places, you might want to watch that at it will kill you if you're trying to belt higher
