If you’d like to suggest any other vocalists who turn one syllable into many notes, please do. Some singers I have in mind are Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce. (However, I will also be exploring further afield than contemporary US female vocalists. Note: Oops. Just remembered that Celine’s Canadian.) Specific song suggestions are welcome too.
