Still no call from my pharmacy today to start my HRT .... so in the meantime I was thinking of my favorite women vocalists are so as part of my voice femininization I can start trying to sing along with.

 

SO who are your favorites....

 

Mine are

1) Bonnie Raitt

2) Susan Tedeschi

3) Dale Rossington

4) Stevie Nicks

5) Linda Ronstadt

6) Norah Jones

7) Anne Wilson

😎 Janis Joplin

9) Grace Potter

10) June Millington

11) Beth Hart

Honorary Choices - sorry no matter how I will try - I will never be as soulful as these incredible black ladies -Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Minnie Riperton

For the past decade it's been Loreena McKinnett and Azam Ali.  Over the long haul, I would say Stevie Nicks and Loretta Lynn.  As a teen I had a major crush on Linda Ronstadt.

You should listen to Mina, great voice. She stoped performing live since decades ago. From her private studio in Switzerland, every year she offered us a new album.

Please listen to Luna Diamante, music is an international language if you don't understand Italian

16 years ago I was making a long drive every week.  I had several Madonna CD's in the car, her voice was in my range and thanks to incessant play on the radio I knew all the words, so I would sing Madonna tunes the whole 4-1/2 hr. trip there and then back a couple of days later.  Or until my voice gave out, lol.  It really helped, but I doubt I could do that today.

Amelia Brightman is by far my favorite female vocalist.

Although I have several female vocalists I love. it's time for recognition of the obscure and unknown. 

 

In 2003, on a Serbian rendition of 'America's Got Talent' a young (20's probably) woman sang a rendition of Alanis Morisette's What's Going On. This song requires a wide vocal range. So wide that Alanis can no longer hit all the high notes. Neither can Pink or anyone else I've seen attempt it. Every time I listen to this, I come away wide-eyed. IMHO, it's the best rendition I've ever heard, hands down. And yes, that's me on the top of the comments section.

Chills!  Very few singers have that kind of range.  The great ones always give me chills.  Jackie Evancho, Susan Boyle, Courtney Hadwin......

Wow!  Such great lists and names.  I don't know many of these performers, but will certainly look them up.

 

Being fairly well "seasoned" (old), I've forgotten a lot of my earliest female vocalists, but here goes (in no particular order):

 

Karen Carpenter (amazing voice and incredible all-round musician)

Adele

Aretha Franklin

Indigo Girls

Melissa Etheridge

Loreena McKinnett

Carrie Underwood

Joan Baez

Janis Ian

Pat Benatar

K D Lang

Amber Riley (little known, but she won an Olivier in London's West End for "Dream Girls")  Here she's singing a cappella - and it's funny as heck) 

 

 

Can't remember any more right now :(

      I’m considering it more and more. I guess I really need to talk to someone and see what area I would like best.
    • SL
      I agree with this. Being "smart" is such a relative thing and I think a lot of times it has to do with the quality of the teachers. If teachers aren't engaging and excited about what they teach then learning the material is going to suck and you won't do as well in courses. There are also people who are know a lot, but they are just bad at testing. People who are bad at testing because of test anxiety or dyslexia or other similar issues can get testing accommodations at universities.   What I've learned about teaching is if the teacher can't explain the course material to a seven year old, they are probably not a good teacher. Obviously this may not be the case for quantum mechanics or some areas of neuroscience or philosophy, but if a teacher makes you feel stupid, it's probably their fault. I personally don't think there are stupid people, just people who had bad teachers.

      Super cool. I think Nursing is definitely one of the top careers because you have such vast options on where and what type you do.     
    • Emily michelle
      Oh ok wow you have a tough job being in an icu. I’m fairly familiar with nursing because my mom was a nurse for 40 years.
    •  Kylie
      @Emily michelle I work in a Medical Intensive Care Unit. I have my Masters in Nursing Education and am finishing up Practitioner school currently and going into Advanced Practice with Critical Care/Cardiology at some point.     
    • Cris31
      That's quite a long time Sandra.  Glad you're happier.  I wish I'd realized earlier, could have avoided the denial, depression, etc.  But we can only move forward and try and make the best of it.
    • Emily michelle
      I’m considering health care both of my parents are retired from health care. My wife also mentioned nursing school. That’s awesome that people are that accepting in that field. I wish my current profession was more accepting but I don’t see that happening. If you don’t mind me asking Kylie what kind of nursing are you in?
    • Bri2020
      Thanks.  My google searches all had stuff from 2015 or earlier.  I have no problem with itemization, small biz owner so... also I'm discovering how much out of pocket all of this is running so reaching 7% isn't gonna be a problem, especially if electrolysis is covered.  I saw a reference in a legal case that said that FFS was covered on the basis that for transgender females "passing is important for many for reduction in psychological symptoms as well as safety therefor medically indicated".  My hope is that based on that, facial hair removal "should" fall under the same argument.  lots more research to do.  If there's no case law specifically for it, it might be worth attempting and if IRS flags it, having a legal case argued just to help the cause.

      I used to refuse any automatic payment things myself - I'm from the old land-line days.  It made me feel like someone (or something) else was in control.  But I kept forgetting to prepay my phone, and then they did offer a discount, so I just figured what the hell.  I mean it's not like anything is really hack-free.  I use a credit card so if anything suspicious happens I'll see it on the statement.  Anyhow, it keeps me from being surprised by a dead phone. And then last winter I had to have some surgeries.  I was staying with my daughter in another town and couldn't keep up with my mail and stuff (bills) so i switched what I could to auto pay.  I'm not crazy about it, but so far it's worked out okay.

      @Emily michelle I have been a Nurse for 8 years now. Working in the Medical Field is wonderful. I will say many Healthcare Organizations value the Diversity and Inclusivity Especially with the LGTB+ community. I myself don’t really find myself involved in LGTB stuff, but have grown to love the aspect of how I have such supportive and interested coworkers.    As far as if you’re ‘smart enough’. Don’t weigh intelligence too much. I work along side many Nurses that dropped out of high school and college multiple times before ever finishing nursing school. Look at different career paths within Healthcare, you won’t regret it!   Kylie

      Today was Lindsey Sterling (with Lzzy Hale). I wish I could move like that. On the other hand, oncoming traffic probably thought I was a crazy person dancing (badly) down the sidewalk.   Also some Mystery Skulls,   Hugs!

      I am old (school) so I am usually reluctant to sign up for automatic payments for anything.  There are a couple of exceptions.  I change passwords and credit card numbers often enough to make it very tedious to have to remember which auto payments I'm signed up for and change them out.   So I buy my stamps, lick my envelopes, and pray that the "Mail Goes Through" on time.  Even that is becoming less of a sure thing these days.  Some days I don't get my mail delivered until 9 p.m.   Carolyn Marie

      The last time I read up on it, which admittedly was several years ago, it was considered a cosmetic procedure by the IRS.  I have not heard of any change.  Breast enhancement surgery for MtF and mastectomies for FtM are usually allowable deductions if one gets documentation from medical providers that it was medically necessary.   That said, the cost of medical procedures must still exceed the percentage of income (usually 7%) in order to be deducted, and finally, one must be able to itemize deductions, which is a more difficult threshold to get past than it was prior to Trump's big tax changes from a couple of years ago.   So, as usual, it depends.  Please talk to your tax advisor to be sure.  I am not a tax accountant, nor do I play one on T.V.  🤣   Carolyn Marie
