Recommended Posts

Shay

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 :(

      Yeah, if I'm a 54DD then it comes in my size but not if I'm actually a 58DD. Lol
    • Shay
      thank you - it is nice to have friends like you to give a comforting word.
    • KayC
      What an unending nightmare for her mother and family.  I'm sure they're relieved its over at this point.

      That's a great resource and charts @VickySGV.  Thank you!   @HollyNoel I can attest to the accuracy of the information provided by Vicky.  I eventually found my "right" sizes by trial and error and reading reviews on Amazon for "fits as advertised" or not.  (wish I had this resource before that) Be careful if you are buying online and the vendor is an Asian outlet, because their size charts are different and you need to go up two full sizes normally (like I am XL in US sizes, but XXL or XXXL if its in Asian sizes)   Have fun shopping❣️

      Happy things turned around for you, Heather Shay!  every storm cloud hides a rainbow waiting to come out 🌧️🌈❤️

      Joan Jett is awesome, so yeah, perfectly understandable.   Hugs!

      Congratulations, Kylie!  so happy to hear that everything went so well and your recovery is going smoothly.  You're an inspiration to everyone here❣️

      T-Shirt bras are super soft and comfy. There's a bit of give in them too, so that's lovely. Good choice! Doesn't come in my size though. <pout>   Hugs!
    • Shay
      That is super great news. I am excited for you. I am waiting for news therapist to get my referral letter and want to see if my old psych will also help me. Congrats. Shay

      Hey @TransMex! I'm glad to see that you're still with us.   Real talk? That's your depression gnawing at your ear. It makes it harder to focus. It makes it hard to love yourself. It makes it hard to pursue your dreams. I get it. I've been where you are. You feel hopeless. Alone. Afraid. You just want to put your burden down. You need the hurting to stop. I let that go on until I was forty-eight. Don't do that, it was a terrible idea.   So yeah, the first steps are the hardest. You need to be talking to a therapist. They don't have to be a gender therapist. That would be ideal, but learning to love yourself is a very important step on your journey. I realize that the depression makes it very hard to take care of yourself, but that first step: Talking to a therapist, helped a lot. Hormones helped a little more. Every step made things just a little better. It got a little easier to take care of myself. It got a little easier to pursue my dreams again. I'm not there yet, but I'm getting better. Every little step helps. After you force yourself to take that first step, every step after comes just a little easier.   HRT should help with the mental static too. Once you can think again, it will be easier for you to plan and work towards your goals. In the meantime, we're always here if you need to talk, OK?   I can see that pretty girl looking back at me in the mirror more often than not. It's a great feeling. I want you to have that feeling too.   Hugs!

      I actually did get the Diagnosis I was expecting!    I made a video about the experience which is here      But obviously any questions you have I'm happy to answer here no matter how personal.

      Hey Mex your only 27. I didn't start to full transition until 3year ago. I am 57. Your young which is the best time I think to start transition. I am not sure if you are American Citizen or not. Your grammar is well verse. But if you are and you live in Cali. I would look at trying to get on The Affordable  Care Health plan or Obama ( Heath Care L.A) plan . They will pay for HRT , Gender therapist  and if you qualify they will pay up to 80% of all your surgeries , which included, Female Fascial Feminization , Vocal, Breast and you bottom.  Regardless, Hardest part ( for me) in my transition is moving forward, not giving up or in to my  dysphoria. The easiest  part is giving up. Be safe, BE Proud and KICK ASS

      Sad that it happened, good that some justice is being done, and there will be some closure.
