Tori Kelly x Amber Riley x Todrick Hall - Christmas Medley
I HEARD THE FIRST PART AND IT IS ALL I NEEDED TO REBLOG IT. YES GAWWWWWWWWWD.
This is me. I'm inquisitive and unconventional without trying to be a rebel. Perpetual anger is a bore and I think sarcasm is weak. Here's the best summation of what you'll get here:
We won't always agree. I only require one thing: Be real with yourself for a second.
I don't follow back unless i love the blog
TODAY I AM IN LOVE WITH: ...
I want to let women of all sizes out there know, you can do whatever you put your mind to. Doesn’t matter what size you are, what color you are. You can do whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to!
Amber Riley + “The Finals" (Dancing With The Stars)
Nope nope nope nope nope….everybody pack it up and take your ass home…that last gif is what the Lord meant about having life and life more abundantly…..
i really hope they give her a package of all of her best routines because i want her to be able to look at these and know she did something she wasn’t too confident about and was amazing at it.

I don’t think people truly understand the greatness that is 0:00-1:30.
1) The beauty of her tone.
2) Her control.
3) Her dynamics.
4) Her clean melismas.
5) Her diction.
And my absolute favorite thing about her (because I don’t hear it often):
6) Her ability to carry a tight vibrato through to the very last letter in a word—even if it’s a consonant. At 0:41 you can literally hear her close the word ‘again’ and still sing off the sound of that ‘n’.
But you know, a lot people can’t get into Amber’s sound. They’ll admit that she has a voice on her but think it’s too light or too young, which makes it boring, so they can’t connect with it as much as they could with someone who is more gritty or at least sounds older. And that’s fine. But the fact that she does sound so very clean is actually the beauty of her tone for me. It enhances everything that she chooses to do with her voice because you can hear it SO clearly with no interferences.
I like to think of her vocals as a body of freshwater as opposed to something like the sea. You’re likely to find more people enjoying the sand and sun at the beach, yes, but when lakes and rivers are appreciated it is for their purity, their majesty, and the calm they bring to those who enjoy that kind of atmosphere. It yields nice, clean, drinkable streams and is home to freshwater fish as opposed to common croaker.
