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.

Belting Soul and Funk How to Sing For The Love Of Money by The OJays Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy
Hey guys welcome back again to Ken TamplinVocal Academy where the proof is in the singing! You know, I'm continuing my series on songsand artists that have inspired me, in hopes to be able to inspire you, and I've chosenthe O'Jays For The Love Of Money. Wow! These lyrics couldn't be more prescient or relevantfor today. We'll do it first, we'll talk about it after. Here we go. Okay. Lots of good stuff here, you know. Severalthings again, we talk about phrasing, but we talk also about the context of it's notjust about hitting notes. It's not just about belting. There's some Soul and someswagger. In this case it's about telling
the story with all of that. So there's thesoul of it, there's belting and a lot of energy and it, but it's about telling thestory of what's going on. I could almost guarantee that the O'Jays were more concernedabout telling their story about for the love of money, right, than just singing the tune.So, by the way, if you like what you heard, please like and subscribe to my channel, thatwould be awesome. Also we have a singer's forum, Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy dot com,over 8000 members, almost 9000 now, it's growing, growing, growing, growingâ€¦ AndI have a course called How To Sing Better Than Anyone Else. And I take you through stepbystephow to break down, how to have your own unique
voice. How to take these kinds of things tosell your story, so you're not just some robot just standing there, you know, kindof parroting lyrics. But you're able to internalize this, and represent this in away that tells you your story, not just their story, but your story. So, anyway guys, Iappreciate you joining me, again like and subscribe, check me out on Facebook, Pinterest,twitter, tumblr, you know, all kinds of stuff. I'm all over the place, so. Anyway, theother thing, too, but I want to mention before I go is that a lot of this stuff from, inthis case, the 70s, was very prescient, and it was very foretelling of a lot of thingsthat are kind of going on in the world today,
righté When we tell a story, and we have theconviction, and when we have the tools to be able to present our art, which is supercool, we can actually present it in a way where were not thinking so much about thetechnical side of it that we can just kind of share our heart, so to speak, we're justkind of sharing our heart, and in that comes the soul and the swagger of all of this. So,and again, if you like what you heard, please subscribe, and God bless you guys, and untilnext timeâ€¦.
