Rocking the vote!

So, I have a random audition next week....and I don't know what to sing. So I thought I'd ask you guys to help me choose. The three top contenders are:

I Say A Little Prayer For You - Aretha Franklin (classic song, classic artist, a song I'd never song till last year when I had to for band, and discovered I could!)

Or,
To Be With You - Mr Big (90s cheeeeeeeese! Great song though, and fun to sing)

Or,
Holding Out For A Hero - Bonnie Tyler (just awesome! I love singing this song, not least because it has about the most cliched lyrics ever!)

So gang. Which should I do? I've got a strongish mezzo-soprano / alto voice, and have sung two of these three in public before, so I know it's in range and all that good stuff. It's only a wee audition, but I'd appreciate the input! My fate is in your hands, hee!

Ooooh, and if you can think of any other songs that should be in the running (I dread to think what Wiwille might suggest ;)), let me know!

Love,
Claire

  1. It has to be Aretha! Although Mr Big is a seriously cheesy 90s tune.

  4. I'd go with the Mr Big, that has to be ripe for re-invention by now.

    The trouble with the other two is that those performances were so iconic that you'd have to be seriously amazing to impress with those songs.

    Actually I don't know, maybe you are amazing - I haven't heard you sing.

  5. That third one rocks! I love her voice. It's powerful. The only thing better than that is "Total Eclipse of the Heart."

    Can you give us a sample? Why aren't YOU on You Tube?? :)

  6. Holding Out For A Hero gets my vote. But it's a really close call.

  8. "Hero" is very dynamic and would get their attention for sure!

  10. I haven't heard 'Holding out for a Hero" since Shrek part 2.

    You're scared of my suggestion? I'm shocked, shocked I tell you.

  11. hmmm...I'd like to say Aretha because I think her songs show great range....but yes...maybe its too iconic.

    In that case, I would do Mr. Big :)

  14. i vote holding out for a hero.. taking on aretha is a pretty tall order, but with bonnie it's still a big, fun song that you can use to show off your pipes :-)

  16. I'm an Aretha fan through and through. I hope that has tipped that song into the winning position!!

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
