Soundbath –Adam Lambert’s Beautiful Voice “As a vocalist myself, I appreciate his voice, his level of vocal technique, and mastery greatly. Coupled with the fact that he is also one of the most exciting performers I have ever seen, makes following his career particularly enjoyable. Fans of Adam Lambert know of his earlier operatic training, which had instilled good singing practice, a keen understanding of his vocal instrument, the proper use of his body’s muscles to support his breath and voice, and masterful phrasing and story telling skills. Years spent singing in musical theatre have honed Adam’s interpretative and communication skills, and his stage craft. This, coupled with a sharp intellect and a seemingly sound intuition, has afforded him a uniquely expert way of interpreting songs. He seems to be able to sing any genre authentically from pop music to rock anthems and everything in between.”

But certain realities should have been obvious to the Mad Tweeter…”
ABC REVEALS SONG CHOICES FOR “GREATEST HITS” FINALE, INCLUDING ARIANA GRANDE’S WHITNEY HOUSTON TRIBUTE “Adam Lambert will cover George Michael’s “Faith,” while John Legend will offer his take on two Lauryn Hill hits.
