honestly, I'm sick and tired of each increasingly younger singing “sensations” !!

When I hear them, they sound like trained Munchkins. What's next a sensational 5 year old singer? then 3, then 2, then from the womb ?

I prefer a man or woman with maturity of at least 20s or 30s. Someone who has lived and loved, lost and learned. Someone who personifies the human condition and what it means to love ( and hate )..That is true art.

What this is , is the worship of youth. I've seen stage parents similar to this. My lord, they come close to worshiping the bowel movements of their little child phenomenon.

I hear you!

I get very uncomfortable when one of my little voice students wants to sing a song that is age-inappropriate. It is even worse when they imitate adult soul singers and put a lot of vocal fry, groans and grunts and chokes and growls.

I find it appalling, but the parents seem to love it when the kids do that.

A child’s voice should be pure and clear...like a child’s heart.

Just my humble opinion, but an “educated” one.
