Christina AguileraVocal Pluses: Christina Aguilera has a very nimble and dexterous voice that allows for incredible vocal runs and for her to able to jump between the different parts of her range with ease. Also has the stamina to hold notes for extended periods of time, with or without vibrato.
Vocal Type: Mezzo- Soprano
Vocal Range: 4 octaves. C3- C7
Longest Note: 20 seconds - 'At last' (live)
The midrange is heavy and thick- more so in recent years- and it is where the voice is most comfortable. The texture of her voice, particularly her belted notes, is unique with a coarse, throaty edge to it when sung without mixing. This texture can be eliminated, producing a smoother tone, when the voice is mixed effectively but the sound produced is lighter and less resonate. The head voice can be either bright and piercing or delicate and airy, depending on what is called for artistically.
Vocal Negatives: The higher, coarser chest notes- above a C5- tends to be forced, pulled and unhealthy. Though it should be noted many fans cite the sound produced as a plus to her voice, despite it being achieved via questionable vocal means. Although able to sing in the whistle register the notes produced tend be labored and require a vocal run to access.
