Re: A budding young singer
Yes, Larry, I think it's outrageous that some of today's performers, like Miley, lipsinc on stage during what is supposed to be a live concert. The ticket prices these days are astronomical too, and why should anyone pay these kinds of prices to hear recorded music?! You may as well stay home and listen to the records. It's also true what you said about how the voice can be altered to give it the right pitch, etc. In Miley's defense though, I do have to say that I've seen her do a few songs that she sang with just her voice and guitar, which were very nice. These didn't seem altered in any way. Of course, I'm talking about the earlier Miley, before she took on the slutty image she's showing off nowadays. She did a song called "The Climb", which had very nice lyrics, and she sang it beautifully. There was also another song, which was sort of a country type ballad called "Butterfly, Fly Away" which was beautiful! These were recorded during her Hanna Montana days, but I'm not ashamed to say that I thought some of her songs back then were very nice.
