Question Posted Wednesday October 25 2006, 9:22 pm

Hello. I'm a teenage girrl who is auditioning for a local production of Seussical in January. I'm pretty sure I'm an alto at this point in my life (low D to high C). I really want to sing a belting song (that i can sing completely in my chest voice) that is catchy and upbeat, not a slow ballad-type song. I'm not new to musical theater at all in case you were wondering. But, with my voice changing all the time, I'm having trouble finding good audition songs for my range. I want it to show off how well I can project, and it CANNOT be anything similar to "don't rain on my parade" if you know what I'm talking about.

Also, I have trouble with taking my chest voice up higher than it naturally does. Like I feel like my break occurs lower than everyone else's. And I need tips on how to take my chest voice higher (like high enough to belt "don't rain on my parade" or the star to be's part from "NYC" in the ORIGINAL KEY) without breaking or sounding strained or nasal or bad or anything.

So, in conclusion: i need song suggestions/tips on high belting.

thank you so much and any advice would be appreciated. :)

Additional info, added Wednesday October 25 2006, 9:27 pm:
I sang "Give my Regards to Broadway" and "Little G i r l s" from Annie for about 6 auditions in a row, so don't suggest those.


And please remember that the songs DO have to be from MUSICALS. (not country songs or pop c u l t ure songs)

From the musical Once on this Island, you should try the song Mama Will Provide (sung by the character Asaka). This song has a mostly alto range, although their are a few high notes towards the end. Still, they could be brought down an octave, and it would still sound good.

I'm sorry I don't have any tips on how to get your chest voice up higher. Still, good luck on your audition!
