We're going to use another singer,…and I'm gonna bring on Perry.…- Hello. - [Teacher] Hi.…So, Perry, is there a section of a song…that's giving you trouble or is challenging?…- Yes, there is.…- Okay, tell me.…- I actually wrote a song, and the chorus of it is,…I feel it's just a bit above,…towards the higher side of my range.…I think I can get there, I just don't know how…to breathe properly when I sing.…So I think that's holding me back.…
- Gotcha.…What happens when you sing this section?…- Sort of keeping the notes deep in my throat, I feel like,…I feel like I'm not able to fully…pronunciate all the words correctly.…
