So I randomly scrolled Youtube and found this cover:

At 1.06, I'm wondering.. how is this "angelic" head voice achieved? If it's just airy/breathy head voice, then how is it achieved?


In my opinion, I'm not a professional singing teacher but I think it's simply a whistle note. Something along the lines of it or just it.

Is this correct?

    Whether she is improvising ad lib or performing a fixed melody that she has practiced carefully is possibly unknowable without asking her or having recordings of other performances to compare. In any event, it's an entirely different question from the one about the manner of vocal production.

  • The edits actually made this even harder to answer. We've taken a position that simple "how can I replicate this sound" questions are not covered here, questions like "hey, I like the guitar effect on this solo, which pedal can I use to get the same sound." These are usually impossible to answer and not useful to future readers. Yours is essentially a question about technique, which is more of a topic we want to support. To make it answerable, please edit to describe the sound in more words, since the video link might not last, and to say more about what you think might be the approach. Apr 3 at 20:59
  • I will suggest that a large part of what makes it so effective is some reverb added to the mic signal. Apr 3 at 20:59
  • @AndyBonner I see. Thank you!
