How to Sing Valerie Amy Winehouse Cover Tori Matthieu Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy
Hey guys welcome back again to Ken TamplinVocal Academy, where the proof is in the singing. I'm here with my amazing student, Tori Matthieu,and we're doing takedowns of different songs today. We're going to do Amy Winehouse.The song's called Valerie. We'll do it first. We'll talk about it after, likewe always do. Let's rock! Amy Winehouse. Whooh! Nice job, girl! Man, that was good.Thank you. All right, so basically, we're doing a lotof different stuff, from Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouseâ€¦ And what's interestingabout this is not so much that we're just doing a bunch of cover songs, but it's howTori finds herself in the song, and actually
represents that art with her own touch, herown flair, but to be able to sing in a lot of different styles, because what this doesis to give you a lot of tools for your toolbox for singing. So, we're going to be working upon, actually, some original material, too, so be watching out for that. Anyway, this is KenTamplin Vocal Academy. If you like what you see here, please like and subscribe to mytutorials. Also, I have a killer course, you can check it out here.

Applause Mrs. Coolidge, as many of youknow already, was a brilliant and formidable woman,pianist, composer, inaudible and a passionate advocatefor chamber music. She endowed our superb concert halland supervised it's construction. She established our concertseries here through a concept
that was visionary andradical for its time, a publicprivate partnership, apath breaking innovation signed into law by Calvin Coolidge. And if you have our brochureyou can see a reprint image of that first bill. This was a first. Her gesture was a first. Her vision and her leadership
which has made possiblenearly 3000 concerts and more than 100 significantCoolidge Foundation commission for the Library was the spark forour panel tonight, A Leading Role: A Conversation on Womenin the Music World. And I wanted to say, too, thatyou can see in a handsome exhibit about Mrs. Coolidgeand her life and career over in the James MadisonBuilding across the street.
