Vocal Rating: Vocalist
Analysis: A Teflon musical act for over two decades, P!nk is one of the most widely respected vocalists in Pop. Her raspy, smoky timbre and wide vocal range have drawn praise from many in the music industry. While she has been singled out for her vocal prowess since the beginning of her career, she has blossomed even more in recent years, adding “an octave” to her voice after picking up voice lessons and quitting cigarettes.
P!nk is widely accepted as a lyric mezzo-soprano. Her dark, womanly timbre and powerful lower register are all strong indicators of her fach. While she developed a strong mixed voice after she quit smoking around 2012 that allows her to soar into a soprano’s tessitura, her lack of comfort or control around C6 dismisses soprano classification. She has also been labeled as a contralto by some due to the husky quality of her voice, but she lacks a truly androgynous vocal quality. All of this is to say that while P!nk is a mezzo-soprano, she displays the strengths of other fachs which speaks to the versatility and athleticism of her instrument.
As a mezzo, P!nk’s lower register is strong as expected, descending all the way down to B2 with tonal consistency.Hashtags: #FallSongs with P!nk Even after she quit smoking, this part of her voice has remained strong, if not grown healthier. As she ascends into her midrange, her voice warms but retains a dark, velvety timbre, exhibiting the truly lyrical nature of her voice.
While P!nk’s voice sounded disconnected early in her career, she has since blended it seamlessly. Like many of her contemporaries, P!nk initially pulled her chest voice up to achieve a gritty texture to her voice, but she has since learned how to get the same effect with less strain. As she enters the fifth octave, P!nk displays strong vocal technique, blending her chest voice with her head voice, and keeping her tongue flat and pressed against the backs of her molars. Her placement is forward with a strong “pop” to it, and picks up less grit now than when she was younger. She also displays a consistently noble and buoyant posture, which augments her already strong breath support. This is perhaps the highlight of her voice, as her strong mixed voice allows her to shed some vocal weight but retain power.
Her breath control is virtually unparalleled in today’s popular music, being able to support her voice and steady the pitch even when executing death-defying acrobatics and demanding dance routines.Vocal Coach reacts to Pinks (P!nk) Beautiful Trauma Performance at the 2017 AMA Even at the extremes of her voice, P!nk rarely sounds like she’s working to reach the notes, relying on her breath support to sustain her voice rather than muscles in her mouth and throat. This also speaks to the strength of her musical ear as well, as she is able to sing her lines virtually identical to those of her studio recordings with little mental energy.
Overall, P!nk is undoubtedly one of Pop’s strongest and most underrated vocalists. While she has always been a capable vocalist, by prioritizing her health – and the health of her instrument – she has seen near immediate returns on the quality and precision of her performances.
