EFFORT VERSUS ENERGY (part deux)

Today I admitted something to Kim.  When I watch singers sometimes I secretly think their physicality is over the top.  But I’m starting to learn that’s not true.  As Kim pointed out, you see an opera singer sweating bullets while standing perfectly still.  It’s not an affectation or over acting – it just takes THAT much energy to produce that kind of sound.

Here’s an example of Audra McDonald singing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  She’s singing the silliest stuff  while completely relaxed and totally energized.  And she’s pretty funny too.
