RANGE http://www.fantom-xp.com/wp_84__Gwen_Stefani_-_Retro_Style.html http://www.wallsave.com/ PINK Vocal Type: Contralto Vocal Range: 3 octaves. B2- B5 (approx) Whistle Register: No Vocal Pluses: Weighty, thick lower range that is achieved without the need to resort to unhealthy vocal practices, like forcing the larynx down. The midrange is solid and dark, with a husky quality at times but can be sweetened and lightened if needed-Stop Falling. The chest voice can achieve a raw sounding rasp while keeping the voice weighty and resonant, or can be thinned to achieve a purer tone. The head voice is solid and pronounced, with a brightness and clarity. As well as the multitude of different timbres and colours available to Pink’s versatile voice, she also has the vocal dexterity to sing complex meslisma-Love Is Such A Crazy Thing- as well as hold notes for lengths of time without issue. Vocal Negatives: When using the rockier edge to the voice Pink can sound unhealthy, also the head voice sounds disconnected and harder to access than the other parts of the range. 43
