I actually practiced with the chorus two years ago at christmas, and have close to his range, and have the 'ear.' I am wasting it on my new guitar hobby.
Do yourself a favor, and take private vocal lessons. Even if you play guitar, singing well is always a handy trick to pull off. Plus, it is just plain fun when you start learning how powerful you can be with just tones.

Not that many bassos around. There's always gigs for guys with your range. Of course, you'll never get the melody either.

I find something about her mesmerizing as well, not sure that it is her vocal arrangements however.

It does look like the girl in the second pic spells her name a bit differently...

Found both pics with a google image search for Nataly Dawn.

Have you seen Christine Aguilera's harmonies? Actually, I ain't sure those are all her voices, she has some excellent back up singers.

With all due respect to Christine A, all she's doing is voicing over a prerecorded track of her backup singers, who are doing the harmonizing. She's not harmonizing at all.

I'm sorry, but this is simply not correct. To me it sounds like her voice was run through a digital harmonizer to create the other pitches. The harmonies are too perfectly matched. Real people when they sing together, are never perfectly in tune, and this lack of intuneness, which fluctuates up and down fairly rapidly, creates an effect that one can hear. Curious enough, most digital effects units (like a stomp box for a guitar) have an effect called a Chorus that does exactly this; making the signal go slightly in and out of tune with itself to make it sound like more than one signal.

Please understand I am not attempting to defend Ms. Aguilera's singing, or her video. She is who she is. I am not a fan of her, but that is mostly because I don't fit the demographic she is marketed for.

On second thought.... I went back and listened again. There is more than one vocal track, but they all sound like they were sung by the same voice. I believe a digital harmonizer was used in parts, but she, or one person, is singing most of the parts.

Fair enough. I don't pretend to know more than I really do about music; but I still stand by my original contention that she's not doing any harmonizing...

If you want to talk about layering vocal tracks, you have to mention Enya
