Learning to Sing “Amazed” by Lonestar
“Amazed” by Lonestar is a beautiful song that encapsulates the feeling of being deeply in love. The song calls for a delicate balance of raw emotional delivery and technical vocal precision.
Understanding the Vocal Technique
The lead singer of Lonestar, Richie McDonald, uses a technique known as “mixed voice.” This technique combines the richness of the chest voice with the brightness and high range of the head voice. The use of mixed voice can be seen in many other popular songs such as “Hallelujah” by Jeff Buckley and “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston. To effectively sing using mixed voice, I recommend watching the [Mixed Voice video].
