Does anybody know big belting songs for a Guy, for general auditions (regional/ open calls/ Proffessional)...(Big End of Act Belting songs, like "I am What I am" from la Cage, which I use to much) Anything very loud and Big. I can pretty much belt anything, range isn't much of a problem...if it belts an E great, a G even better. I have a pretty Cliche Broadway belters Voice (not to Baritone or to Tenner, Just Cliche'- "michael Arden")

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT

How about 'Anthem' from 'Chess'. Tommy Korberg certainly 'belted' that one!

Belt is such a misunderstood term!

The only voice that is conceivably entering a belt at an E is a very thick bass voice. Baritones are starting around G and tenors higher still.

Trust me when I say that I can mix easily on a G but really only enter my true belt on As and Bs. And I am more a high baritone rep guy. Plus what are we talking about when we use the term mix? To me its combining twang, speech and cry or some combo of those into a voice quality that is perceived to be brighter and more energised.

If you want to understand more about it I suggest Gillyanne Kayes book "Singing and the Actor". She also has a great website www.vocalprocess.net and I have done a some belting workshops with her and her husband. I would be shocked if want you describe as a money note E/F is anything like belting.


Just reread my post and apologies if its taken as being patronising or rude! I really just get a bit peeved about all the misunderstanding and crap that goes around re the voice. Its a set of muscles and tissue just like any other physical activity and best approached through understanding and hard data rather than old imagery. IMHO anyway re: Male Belting Solos

A good one I use is "ALL I CARE ABOUT IS LOVE" from "Chicago"- not a bad belt at the end and always a bit of a laugh to do-the audition panel may enjoy a bit of light relief. "MAKE THEM HEAR YOU" from "Ragtime" is a bit more serious but equally good.Others could be "WINTER ON THE WIND"from "The Secret Garden" I think has a belt at the end.

Soliloquy -(Too Many Cries) and Nature Of The Beast from whistle down the wind. it spans 2 and a bit octaves and would really show off your vocal range.
