Hear the stories of awe-inspiring voices from around the world and across time.
50 vocalists are profiled in this great series from 2010. Each voice/career is analyzed and an especially important track is played. The singers are from all parts of the world and all styles.
This would make a great online asynchronous discussion exercise for my students. They could choose one or two singers and discuss why they like these singers using the terminology we are learning. Since most of my classes have about 25 students, each student would have a broad range from which to choose two singers (with instructions to choose an artist no one else has already chosen). Once they have discussed their choices, I would have them post a singer they think should have been chosen for the list. By referring to the link below, they would then justify why they think their choice should have been on the list.
Here is the link outlining how the voices were chosen. Click
