On my YOUTUBE channel I have a Playlist Series I call 'If I Were Your Vocal Coach....'. I do 'mock' coaching sessions of celebrities, showing by way of demonstration, how their technique affects their performance in positive and sometimes negative ways. I then apply the concepts of my Lawrence Vocal System to their singing to show how they might sing differently to get a different result.
I recently posted an 'If I Were Your Vocal Coach....Josh Groban' session, and got this comment, from a Josh Groban fan who was defending him. My response is below.
If you'd like to see the Josh Groban mock session filmed from a LIVE @Periscope TV broadcast, SEE IT HERE.
I talk about using 'body placement' and 'aiming back' not into the mask.
Here's my reply to a Josh Groban fan:
+Amy Collins - Thanks for your question. In the video, you'll hear me say that I love @Josh Groban's voice. He sounds great and I even say 'there's nothing wrong with his voice'. In this video I'm simply demonstrating through Josh Groban's technique - how a different placement in the body, and 'aiming back', not forward as he does - can create a different sound, and ultimately make singing easier and more secure. No criticism, just a demonstration and suggestion that there are different ways to produce your sound when singing. Cheers, Beth Lawrence, http://allaboutvoice.com
