AWARD winning singer may have unique style, tone and pitch.
“I thought Chris Martin was an interesting choice to sing a George Michael tribute,” said Dudley Petard, Entertainment consultant.
“George Michael was a very good singer in the traditional style. He believed in keeping in tune and had a perfect technique. He didn’t flip into falsetto at the slightest excuse.”
“Chris Martin tends to demonstrate a more individual approach. During his live performances, he gets through each song but there is something unusual about the vocal – particularly the high notes. I can’t put my finger on it. Is it flat, is it sharp or is it in tune? It’s singing – but not in a conventional way.”
“It’s not like his vocal performances provide you with a concrete reason to march to the box office and demand your money back. They are certainly professional; the songs start and finish when they are meant to. You can hear most of the words – if you want to.”
“Some describe his style as expressive and vulnerable, but I just don’t quite get it.”
“To test his style of singing, I went to my local karaoke club and ‘Chris Martined’ a couple of songs: ‘Yellow’ and ‘Everyglow’.”
“When I looked up from the words – the whole audience was asleep.”
“I think I nailed it.”
