Today, we introduce to you another unique talent, Marcelito Pomoy from The Philippines. He is the winner of the second season of Pilipinas Got Talent. After being abandoned by his parents, Marcelito was adopted by a police officer. He started working at an yearly age, and that’s how he discovered his talent. Trying to entertain himself while doing some terrible dirty work, Pomoy was goofing off singing both tenor and soprano. Realizing how unique his talent was, Marcelito started participating in competitions. Please, enjoy his unique rendition of “The Praier.”
“The Praier,” duet between Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli, featured in the animated movie, Quest for Camelot. The song won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1999 and a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals in 2000. This duet was included on albums by both artists. In 1999, Celine Dion first performed “The Prayer” live with Josh Groban at the Grammy Awards.
Human singing voices may possess vocal ranges that have more than one voice type or are in between the typical ranges of two voice types. The Guinness World Record for the largest vocal range is held by Tim Storms, and spans ten octaves! The highest vocal range in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, belong to Georgia Brown. This Brazilian singer produces unusually high pitches using a whistle register. Her range extends eight octaves, from G2 to G10. Her highest pitch, the G10, isn’t technically classified as a note, but rather as a frequency. I bet she can communicate with dolphins and whales.
Very high notes are not considered “musically useful.” The highest demanded note in the classical repertoire is G6 in “Popoli di Tessaglia!”, a concert aria by W. A. Mozart, composed for Aloysia Weber. This rare note is also heard in the operas “Esclarmonde” by Jules Massenet and “Europa riconosciuta” by Antonio Salieri.
The fear of ventriloquist’s dummies is known as Automatonophobia.
