Angel Faye – You have a lovely tone. You picked a very ambitious song and an iconic song from an iconic singer is normally going to mean you are going to come up short. You did it justice but lost control on the high notes. Click here for the importance of song choice. In future, pick a song a little more leftfield and try and make it your own, click here for performing a creative cover

All Change – Good harmonies to start with, it drops off a little before rolling in nicely not sure it needs a breakdown so quickly. Song needs to focus on a main hook and would benefit from a rework on the structure and dynamics to drive through the hook.  Click here for more on singing dynamics and also click here for tips on song structures and writing that song chorus that we all remember.
