“Oceans” is one of the top female-led songs in contemporary worship music. I remember when it was first released… marvelling at the fresh lyrical ideas and Taya Smith’s beautiful voice! Such a lovely song, but not an easy one to sing! Check out this video for tips on how to:
- use edgy vocal fry to give strength to the beginning of your phrases and get rid of a weak, breathy voice
- engage the right vocal resonators to gain richness, power, and freedom
- hit that high note in the bridge with power (“take me DEEEEEPER”)!
- sing in a contemporary mix voice that sounds like chest voice extended up high, but without the tension and strain
