Searching for an upbeat song with a (contralto?) female singer that included the xylophone (or similar instrument)

Heard it once like half a year ago and have been searching since. Can't remember any lyrics or even the melody, but there was a phrase that was repeated throughout (something like "You come by") but searching that or variations of brought up nothing, so the phrase is probably different from what I remember. I'm in Canada if that helps. Not sure on genre but not jazzy or like most pop you hear nowadays. No idea on year but guessing at least the 2000s.

Contralto Singers

I’m trying to find more singers who are contralto! I just discovered my voice is contralto which is very rare and not considered the most popular voice because it’s really low for a woman. I’m trying to embrace my natural voice but I’m having difficulty finding more contralto songs to cover! Does anyone know of any?

Why don’t contraltos get more leads?

So I have been seeing a trend in operas and in musicals that sopranos and tenors almost always get the lead roles while contraltos are relegated to the chorus or the side characters if lucky. Why can’t a contralto get a part that a tenor could play, or even a baritone part and the conductor can scale their aria’s an octave down or up?

My honest opinion: I hope I'm not a contralto

Disclaimer: I do NOT hate contraltos nor do I think contraltos are an inferior voice type to mezzos or sopranos. They are just as capable as their higher counterparts.

The reason why I personally hope I am not one myself is purely because they're not that in demand. Especially in musical theatre. My dream roles and songs in musical theatre are all either typical feminine heroines and romantic leads with bright(ish) voices (ie Cosette, Christine, Cinderella, Glinda etc)or the more in depth, edgy mezzo belter (ie Veronica Sawyer, Eponine, Elphaba, etc). I think being a contralto would prevent most of those roles from happening.

I don't know what type of tone my voice has as it's pretty hard to determine by yourself- especially when your voice is untrained and underdeveloped, though I don't think my voice is a light as say a light lyric soprano, but I also don't think it's as dark, rich or warm enough to be a contralto. From what I've been reading up on to determine your fach, it hints toward me possibly being a contralto. I can sing high in chest voice like a contralto (up to G4 though I do have to raise my voice a bit), underdeveloped head voice, can reach into the third octave (though it doesn't sound as good as my 4th octave and I really don't like singing lower than a G3), etc. When I was younger, I used to consider myself an alto as I struggled with higher notes above my chest voice unless I sung in falsetto, but when I discovered head voice, which allowed me to sing those higher notes with more power (but not enough to belt), I saw myself as a mezzo soprano, and that's still what I see myself as (albeit a severely underdeveloped one), but idk. I could be a contralto or even a soprano (though the latter I doubt atm).

I know I can't truly be accurate with these things as I lack the proper training and all these things I've found out about my voice could simply be because of my lack of training, but you know, people always wonder.

TIL that people used to castrate pre-pubescent boys before the 19th century to halt growth in their larynx to make them sound better and to rival Sopranos, Contraltos, etc. Doing this also increased their breathing capacity. This stopped in the late 19th centuries. They were called Castratos. caslabs.case.edu/medren/b…

contralto repertoire recommendations?

hello! I like to sing classical music, and it's kind of hard to find things that suit my vocal range. my full range is C3-G5, but I'm most comfortable with E3-C5. I've only recently been expanding my range on the higher end, and still have a lot of difficulty getting a good sustained sound on those high notes. (eg. I'm currently learning Erbarme Dich and having a hell of a hard time with all those E5s)

often alto music goes too high for me and tenor music too low. I want to be able to use the full extent of my range and not be forced into just the high end or just the low end! I know I can just transpose, but I'd like to be able to sing music in its intended key.

I particularly enjoy high-energy, fast-moving, dramatic songs, but I'd love any recommendations!

(edit: dammit, I wrote the wrong numbers of the notes! just fixed that)

Transpositioning/Contralto(?) Feels

Hello all! I'm new here. I did a ton of fairly advanced choir singing as a kid (and in college), but have just been a singing-in-the-shower/car "singer" ever since. Now I'm looking to get back into it more seriously.

In any case, I just wanted to ask: is it a thing for people to spend years trying to sing stuff in the original key (and even stylized somewhat like the original singer) and feeling bad or thinking they aren't very good because it often just doesn't really sit quite right for their voice? I finally just cracked and started transpositioning stuff for myself yesterday, and oh my god, I could cry. Just moving certain popular songs (e.g. "Rolling in the Deep," say) down a fourth is revelatory. I am having a surprising amount of feelings about it. Send help?

Songs for Female Contralto?

Hey yall,

I'm having a really hard time finding my voice type/voice range... I'm a female with a really low voice so I assumed Alto, but some of the songs Google showed me are still a little on the high side. Plus, I feel like women with super high voices sing low songs on a higher octave so it's just mad confusing. So I'm assuming I should go even lower which would be Contralto

Anyway, all this to say (hehe...like in that song) do any of you have any suggestions on songs for females with low voices? Please let me know! Also any female performers with low voices that I should look into, or roles I should study. Anything helps!

Thanks for the help everyone and I hope you are all staying safe and healthy out there!

unpopular opinion - RED VELVET's harmonization (contralto and tenor) is superior.

RED VELVET's harmonization is top-tier.

RED VELVET's harmonization (contralto and tenor) in 'red flavor' was so beautiful not to forget 'PSYCHO' too. Their voices blend so beautifully with the soprano, contralto and tenor. 'Umpah Umpah'- is also superior in terms of harmonization. 'Zimzalabim' - too in the verse had beautiful harmonization. 'power up' - too. in fact in 'power up' the contralto was kind of loud.

Are there actually women here that used to be "false contraltos", but turned to be mezzo-sopranos? If so, I would really love to hear about your experience, and learn about how you managed to find your "head voice".

I keep hearing about how rare "true contraltos" are, and that most of them turned out to be mezzo-sopranos that simply had never learned to use their "head voice" properly before.

First, I am wondering:

"How is it even physiologically possible?", and how common is it for women to suddenly develop a "head voice" they never knew they had before?

i.e. How are they able to sing higher than they can talk, without going into their "falsetto" or "whistle registers"?

First, if I understand correctly, your natural singing voice is more or less supposed to match your full speaking range, correct?

i.e. If you move lower than your spoken register, you're getting into vocal fry territory, and higher, into "falsetto" (and then "whistle").

But the "modal voice" (i.e. what people call "chest", "mixed" and "head" registers) would normally be where your singing register lies, too.

So, how could a woman with a C3 vocal pitch in her spoken chest voice suddenly develop a "head voice" well past C5?

I saw someone argue that women make the mistake of thinking they are contraltos, because they naturally speak lower than their singing voice and thus feel more comfortable singing in the same area they instinctively speak in.

Except, as far as I know, I've always done the exact opposite

The "everyday voice" I use is very much as high as I can comfortably go while speaking.

If I put my hand on my chest while I talk, normally, I don't feel anything vibrate (or ever so slightly if I put more inflection in my voice and talk in a more dramatic way).

The sound I produce while talking typically resonates in the back of the throat (without going down the neck), the face, and the nasal cavities. And it seems to originate somewhere in the soft palate.

It is the lightest, highest I can comfortably go (around C4 and slightly higher) while talking. The lowest I can naturally hold a full conversation, however, is around C3.

But I rarely ever do so, because I don't see the point of "using my big voice" in speech.

I have a friend that speaks about as high (or as low, depending on how C4 feels for you) as I do...

But the difference between she and I, is that she's more comfortable climbing the notes from there when breaking into song (her most comfortable song to sing in the original key is "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor), and I'm more comfortable going down (mine is "Locking Up The Sun" by Poets of the Fall).

I can, however, sing "I Will Survive" in the same key
