There are different types of voices and they are classified based on someone’s gender. For women, they can be soprano, mezzo-soprano, or contralto. For men, their voice can be classified as tenor, baritone, or bass. Most singers just distinguish the type of voice they have and work on it.
Meanwhile, there are some who are lucky enough to belt songs from being a soprano into a bass. Example of this is Filipino singer Marcelito Pomoy, who was hailed as the grand champion of Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 for his ability to switch his voice from tenor to soprano.
He also got viral for his singing both parts of Celine Dione and Andrea Bocelli’s The Prayer in WISH 107.9. Just recently, he was invited by no other than Ellen Degeneres to perform on her show.
It looks like Marcelito is not just the one who can do this in the Philippines. A viral video shows a man singing in the mall and belting Lani Misalucha’s Iisa Pa Lamang by using not just his tenor voice but also his soprano voice.
The video, which was posted by Facebook user Rubi Bernabe, shows the man putting up a show in a department store of a mall. Some shoppers noticed him and watched him perform the song.
The video has been shared for almost 4,000 ties and viewed more than 227,000 times.
Netizens were so amazed with this man’s performance. Most of them are agreeing that his voice style, particularly the transition from soprano to tenor.
“Galing niya kasi bukod sa malinis un voice niya at ang galing niya mag palit-palit agad ng voice male too girl ng wala kang maririnig na hangin or un buga ng hangin super klaro ng voice,” Alfred Tongco said.
“Sa lahat ng narinig k0ng mag switch ng voice xa ang pinaka magaling at pino ang tOno ng GIRL VERSION,” Sarah Jane Hirayabashi said.
