Hi Alan...

I like your singing... for a moment it reminded me of a "Tuck & Patty" groove... you may know know who that is, check them out.

Did you write this song? If you wrote this song I have to compliment you... it is really pretty and well written.

Your singing is good... you have some groove... very pretty... 

What to do to make this better?

- Alan tighten up the cues, rhythm... the onsets... how you start and stop on the song.... you should work to feel the synchopated 8th / up beat more, especially on a song like this. 

- Get your voice to resonate more forward and upward... "edge" your voice more to the hard palette... it is a bit blunted... I think it could be brighter....

- At 1:04... this is pitchy... you need to tune this up a bit...

Do it again with these changes and lets hear it...

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply Robert! I really appreciate you bringing your expertise and advice to this forum. Unfortunately no, this song isn't an original (I wish though). Here's the original singer:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4GJVOMjCC4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8aVkB9FhIk and here's what I'm basing my short cover off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzGigJivHfU . Also I'm not too polished on theory since I've learnt from watching and listening, so I don't really understand your advice, but a google search won't hurt me though!

I have no clue what 'syncopated 8th up beats' are, nor do I understand the physiology behind singing, so I'm not too sure how to use my 'hard palette'. Sorry if I'm sounding a bit rude, I literally have 0 musical knowledge.

Your not being rude by saying that?  But my response can only be, ... study and train. Take some lessons from a GOOD voice coach. Or purchase a training product, WITH A BOOK so you can read about how the voice works and a learn a little bit about vocal technique.
