SGL Week 14 Winners Announcement!

in #sgl10 months ago

Here we are at the end of week 14 of SGL already, it's hard to believe but I guess time flies when you're having fun!

Just a quick mention for those who noticed, I accidentally posted the submissions open post early this week. I honestly thought I was a day further ahead, than I actually was.... basically I stuffed up, but given that it was submissions and early I figured it wasn't that big of a deal if anything it should give all you fine people an extra day!

Well that's my reason and excuse for not mentioning it sooner, but I really don't think it made too much of a difference this week. But I will do my best to double check the day before posting in the future! XD

Well so I don't make this post too late we better get on with things, here are our winners for week 14 of SGL!

@isaria

"This is a lovely performance ... clear and sweet vocals with nice guitar work as well!"

@zipporah

"Sweet! Good song choice for you – nice to hear it in such a gentle voice. :)"

@joseacabrerav

"@exoelias brings us a cover of Green Day, "Wake me up when september ends", the vocal work is very good, however, the guitar needs more definition."

@krystle

"Firstly I love this song so much and it has been way too long since I heard it, I was wailing it out along with you the whole time. You just have such a clear and pristine voice, it cuts through with such clarity it really is amazing.

You again have kicked some serious ass, it's hard not to place you every single week. You really have been smashing it out of the park with every entry, this one is no exception and you managed to take me back to my younger days.

Your playing is as always utter perfection, in addition to the sublime vocal quality you display throughout. I just adore your voice, I simply cannot get enough of it and I really cannot wait to see what you create for us next week <3"

@isaria

"Wonderful to hear you singing this week...I loved the intensity and emotion in your performance!"

@zipporah

"Beautiful, once again. Lovely to hear your voice! Rare treat, that..."

@krystle

"Well I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised to hear you singing and I must say I will be expecting more in the future! Lol all jokes aside this was really a kick ass performance, but I will say I can see you feel a little reserved at times.

I think this is purely a lack of confidence (which really isn't warranted), you are so certain when playing the guitar - but I think you feel outside of your comfort zone when singing, but I know in time with practice your singing will feel like it does when you play.

You have a very nice voice, you display a decent range in this performance, you definitely have power behind it as well - one thing I would like to suggest that might help you a little in moments of strain, not strain as in you have to push or anything. No I think what you doing is something all singers do, especially in moments they find hard or that require more exhertion to be pronounced - that is they tense their throat, this is a singers worst enemy.

It feels like that's the logical thing to do, tensing muscles will support the note right... well no not really, sure you might be able to hit the note - but it will be locking everything else in place too, so while you might feel your more secure in that moment it sets things up to go wrong.

Your muscles tense and lock and then you struggle to flow freely note to note, what I would suggest and it's much easier said then done - would be to force your throat to relax, trust you will hit the note and things will just flow on so naturally for you. It will feel better and allow you to take on more complex vocal gymnastics, by preventing you from locking up when you try more intense vocals.

But that is just some advice because I want you to feel more comfortable in singing for us and please know I really enjoyed that performance. I cannot wait to hear more, hopefully even some more singing <3"

@joseacabrerav

"Sad and visceral blues from Orlando Gonzales, making an interpretation of a Norberto Napolitano song, better known as "Pappo"."

@krystle

"Your playing is always perfection, but this time you just took your vocals to a whole new level for me. I have always adored your beautiful tonality, it's stunning - but this song just enhances the focus even more, onto your stunning vocals.

You really have an incredible voice and again your playing is really incredible, I just can't get enough of this and have been listening to it on repeat for days now.

There is a warmth and clarity to your smooth toned vocals, it just captivates the listener and how can it not. Just absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, I am loving your entries of late and this is no exception - hope to hear more and soon!"

OMG! I am speechless. With all certainty I tell you that I did not expect this result, this week there were so many entries so wonderful that I did not expect to be in the final top, let alone win. I'm so surprised that I hyperventilated the emotion and I'm not exaggerating hahaha I want to thank all the judges who positioned me in their top number 1 and with their words made me feel like a great artist. I feel so honored that I don't know what else to say, well, from my heart I thank you very much.

OMG! Estoy sin palabras. Con toda certeza les digo que no esperaba este resultado, esta semana fueron tantas entradas tan maravillosas que no esperaba estar en el top final, y mucho menos ganar. Estoy tan sorprendido que hiperventilé de la emoción y no estoy exagerando hahaha
Quiero darle gracias a todos los jueces que me posicionaron en su top número 1 y que con sus palabras me han hecho sentir como un gran artista. Me siento tan honrando que no se que mas decir, bueno, desde mi corazón les doy muchísimos gracias.

Felicitaciones A tooooodoooos!!!! <3
