Singing
“Music speaks what cannot be expressed soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul”. - Anonymous. Music can be a big part of people's everyday life to calm down, to have fun, but do they really know the progress it takes to make those songs, to sing them? There is a progress leading up to making the perfect song. Like the voice pitch, the warm-ups so the voice isn't scratchy, but is warmed up and ready for singing, and the type of genre that the artist is singing.

One warm-up is numbers. So what happens is when singing all the numbers starting with one then counting up one number, then going down all the way back to the number one.Like this, one, one two one, one two three two one.

Pop is written songs from the heart based on a tune of the artists choice with meaningful lyrics at times. Opera is good when singing if a Soprano, Soprano one, or Soprano two. Because of how high the voice is, but for when it's good for how low the voice is. Country music, well that's another story. Country is like a mix of all types of voice ranges made into a good song about drinking and heartbreak. Like Carrie Underwood is a country singer and her voice range is a Soprano. And as for Luke Bryan he is also a country singer and he is a High Baritone. So as we can see everyone has a different voice range, genre and they are all just good
