My Eighth Recording - Part of Your World

In another attempt at a Disney classic, I recorded "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid. And yes, the sound quality is getting better!

My Seventh Recording - A Little Fall of Rain

In another attempt to work on my lower register (and also because of my love of Les Miserables), I decided to record "A Little Fall of Rain." YouTube singer "MithrilCipher" sings the part of Marius.

My Sixth Recording -- I Could Have Danced All Night

Eliza Dolittle, I think, is one of the most iconic musical theatre characters of all time, and so I decided to sing "I Could Have Danced All Night" from her show, My Fair Lady. This recording is interesting, as it came out very, very quiet. Like, you can't hear me well at all. And the sound quality still leaves the high notes something to be desired. Still, it worked as a first recording of this song, and I plan to re-record it in the future.

My Fifth Recording - One Day More

Just for fun (and it was a lot of fun), I decided to sing all of the female parts in "One Day More" from Les Miserables! I know I most certainly missed some parts, but this was so much fun to put together, and since fun was what I was going for, mission accomplished!

My Fourth Recording - Think of Me

For my fourth recording, I decided to perform a song I've always loved -- "Think of Me" from Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. At this point, I was still attempting to work out sound issues and so the high notes (particularly the B flat at the end) don't sound as clear as would be ideal. But it was, overall, a good first attempt.

My Third Recording - A Whole New World

Even though I have been trained classically as a lyric soprano, I'm always working on my lower register and my mix. Disney tunes tend to help me do that, so I decided to record "A Whole New World" from Disney's Aladdin. Interestingly, this show is now on Broadway. Singing the part of Aladdin is YouTube singer "vaanfluff."
