Going in the opposite direction, we’ll focus now on a bright, present tone. This is related to the concept of forwarding placement, in which there is more resonance perceived in the front of the face. Singers with a brighter tone include Freddie Mercury, Bruno Mars, Adam Levine, Tori Kelly, and Carrie Underwood.

Typically, country music, musical theatre, and some pop & rock styles call for a brighter tone. With a brighter sound, we’re using more head resonance and mix voice. Let's get started!

1. Sing the word "SING" 

To achieve it - we will start with the thinner vowels like "E" and "U"

and let more nasal resonance happened but not lifting soft palate as much.
