Finding Today's Clear Voices


                           Take five minutes or less and try to think of singers that currently perform without a heavy dose of auto-tuning and technical manipulation.  Out of these artists, how many are under 40? My lists were about even, but I expected the under 40 list to be much smaller. I was pleasantly surprised.  The artists over 40 includes; Celine Dion, Sandi Patty, The Osmonds and Doris Day. The younger group consisted of; Clay Aiken, John Legend, Josh Groban, Charice, and Charlotte Church. I know there are singers that I could add to these lists, but these were the ones that came to my

mind and in a hurry.
                     There are some things that I enjoy about today's music; but there are some things that I miss about the music of the past four decades. I enjoy some of the advances in music technology, but it seems like some of the focus and effort on getting good clear vocals is becoming passe. Also, as much as I enjoy downloading and streaming music; I miss the thrill of waiting for an album, saving half a week's allowance as a kid, going out to buy it, playing it until the cassette or record wore out or I discovered another, and rediscovering the same album a while later, like a buried treasure.


             As a side note, one of the clear voices in my area  recently passed away.  Luther Masingill was a television and radio reporter for 72 years in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

3 Modern World Heroes

*** Thanks to Kitty St James, Sharon Anne  and Cathie Sato for research assistance. I got this post idea from Michelle Shaeffer. ***












    What do Kailash SatyarthiMalala Yousafzai, and Clay Aiken have in common,  besides being in the news?







  • Their efforts to improving the lives of children (and others)                          

  • Kailash Satyarthi is from India and has been a teacher and champion for child labor rights. He and Malala Yousafazi have recently won a Nobel Peace Prize.    
  •  Malala Yousafazi is a young lady from Pakistan who has fought for the rights of women and girls.      
  •    Clay Aiken was studying to become a special education teacher when he auditioned for American Idol in 2003. He has used his celebrity to benefit various causes, many related to children in need with UNICEF and the National Inclusion Project(which he co-founded). Now, he has put his career in entertainment on hold to run for office.                    
    •    One difference that the first two people have from Clay is that their endeavors have lead to injuries and death threats . Another is that Clay has not received a Nobel Peace Prize.
