Leona Lewis Vocal Range
Vocal Type: Mezzo-soprano
Vocal Range: 3 Octaves 3 notes and a semitone (C3- F#6)
Whistle Register: Yes
Longest Note: 12 seconds - 'Over The Rainbow' (live)
Vocal Pluses: Technical singer, with the dexterity to sing complex melisma and the stamina to hold notes easily. The voice has an overarching sweet and light tone. The texture of the mid-range, and the head-voice can be alternated between a smoky timbre and a clearer one depending on choice. The chest voice is strongest and most resonate in its lower half (from a B4 to a C5) but is capable of extending up to a G5 where it becomes brighter, and lighter but with noticeably less resonance. Finally, the head voice is pure and rounded, sounding easily accessible and connected to the range as a whole.
Vocal Negatives: Control of low notes is shaky and sometimes higher belted notes are reached without mixing, leading to a harsher tone. The vibrato can also sound unwieldy at times.
