Singers - any songs for small voice ranges..?? - April 10th 2013, 04:17 PM

I have an audition in college in a couple of weeks for the second year of the course - even if we don't want to do the second year the audition is part of our assessment, and I have to sing a song.


Trouble is there's not many songs I can sing comfortably. I'm somewhere between alto and mezzo soprano but my range is so small!! I want to do 'At Last' by Etta James but even when I start off as low as possible the high notes sound really weak. :/


Anyone know any good audition songs for an alto with a small range..?? I'd prefer something souly or folky or just..nice, but no pop!!

The Scientist - Coldplay

Super great song, it is sang by a male but you can adjust the key however you may want it. Not pop at all, but it isn't a ballad either.

Hm, other songs... You by The Pretty Reckless, also a limited range, and its a great song too

Many of Christina Perri's songs are low alto range too, so you could try her songs

I think songs that are originally sung by guys are good for small ranges. I have the same problem but I can typically sing guy songs well (they have lower voice pitches!).

The Scientist is unfortunately still a little too high for me - I know, the range is that small!! Thanks for the replies though guys (: I've been looking at guys song but typically they don't really suit my voice - a lot of my favourite ones (like Bring Him Home from Les Mis) really only suit male voices!

Hm so you have a lower voice range? I remembered earlier that there is a song that was sung on the show One Tree Hill by the actress Bethany Joy Lenz. This song was originally done by Sarah McLaughan, but Bethany's rendition is in a lower pitch. Hopefully that helps? If it's TOO low, maybe move it up a key.

There are other videos of the same song if that video doesn't work.
